Reversible Headbands

I feel like I am always making stuff.  Stuff for the house.  Stuff for Little Man.  Stuff for gifts for other people.  All of these are wonderful and important endeavors.  But I got a little selfish and decided it was time to make something for me.

Check out these lovely reversible headbands!!  Don't you just love choosing 2 coordinating fabrics.  This is one of the highlights of my life.  I spend way too much time in the fabric section of JoAnn's, comparing fabrics while my poor son waits on patiently.  


I followed the tutorial here at The Long Thread.  There was a pattern and everything!  I just did a couple of things differently:
* I made my headbands slightly more narrow and used a shorter piece (5 inches) of elastic than the recommended 6 inches.  Maybe I have an abnormally small head.  Not sure.
* I used Wonder Under in between the 2 layers of fabric to really stabilize it before sewing the 2 fabric pieces together. 

Accessories just aren't fun unless you can swap, right?!  I made headbands for both of my sisters.  This is my cute little sister modeling her headband--both sides!  She's a perfect model.  

Now I have 3 headbands left for lil ol' me.  The elastic hides underneath your hair.  Perfect!  


Alright--selfish craft complete.  I'm sure there will be more to come.  Have a super day!

    I love these! Headbands always slide off my hair, but my 11 year old loves them with a passion. I am definitely making some for her!

  6. I've made some of these for my girls….but haven't made any for me. I guess I'm going to have to have a 'selfish' craft day too!!

    Remedy for the slipping-off-the-head problem: buy velcro circles and put 3-4 hard velcro pieces on the underside of the headband. I have two headbands that use velcro; it acts as a little comb to hold the headband in place! Only problem with that…your headband wouldn't be reversible anymore; only one-sided.

  8. Love these! I made some similar for my daughter but never got around to making me some! Linking back to you later in the week!

    I love them and love the fact that they are reversible! But if you wanted to make them one sided you can put a couple circles of velcro on the back side so they dont slide around! I have that on one I bought and I LOVE it! Just an idea!
