I easily put together 5 headbands in about 5 minutes. I think the hardest part was choosing which colors of fold-over elastic I wanted to use for the project.
Here are the basic instructions:
- Cut a 21” piece of fold-over elastic
- Overlap the two ends by about 1/2” (thus making it into a 20” loop)
- Hand stitch the overlapped pieces together
- Try on the headband.
Here's my muppet Isabella modeling the aqua headband for me.
You can find fold-over elastic at JoAnn's fabric stores, Rose City Textiles (http://www.rctfabrics.com), and Saf-T-Pockets (http://webstore.quiltropolis.net/stores_app/Browse_Item_Details_v2.asp?Store_id=413&page_id=23&Item_ID=1074).
