The lengths shown here are for Storey (8 months), but you could easily add or subtract length for an older or younger child. This is a fabulous easy (10 minute) project for leftover scraps.
Cut one piece of fabric--3 inches wide and 13 inches long
Fold the raw edges over (wrong sides together) about 1/2 inch and sew down on both short sides.This is what it looks like with both sides sewn down.
Now fold in half, right sides together and sew with a 1/4" seam allowance to create a tube. Turn sewn tube right side out. Press flat with an iron. You want the seam to be at the bottom of the headband like this...This is the top of the headband-no seam.
Cut 4-5 inches of elastic (size 1/8" width). Feed about 3/4" into one end of pressed headband.Top stitch along the existing seam, making sure that you catch the elastic. Then do the same thing to the other end--feed the elastic into the tube about 3/4" and then top stitch down.Place your shiny new headband on a cute baby!The fantastic onesie Storey has on is from my friend Sabrina's shop-Noodles and Milk. Love it!Let me know if you have any questions about the headband tutorial. I'd love to help!
