Easy Headband Tutorial
My 6 year old daughter has just completed her first sewing project on the sewing machine - A Headband. These are one of the easiest things to make and children love them! We just used some spare fabric she liked which was from an old top no longer needed. She decided to embellish it with buttons which she hand sewed onto the headband by herself too!
Unfortunately I don't have any step by step photographs as this was my child's project and I had to supervise her whilst using the sewing machine and hand sewing decorations onto it. I ironed the fabric for her as I wasn't ready for her to also use the iron quite yet!
If you want to make one of these easy headbands here is a photo and a link to a really good detailed tutorial: 3-days-of-free-easy-headband-tutorials
All you need for this project is a wide piece of rectangle shaped fabric - the size should be able to fit around the head. You also need a piece if elastic to attach to both ends of the rectangle. This enables the headband to stretch over the head and stay in place. If you look at the link I shared with the full tutorial you will be able to see for yourself how easy these are to make.
