DIY Turban Headband

My hair is a mess these days. I mean, who even has time for that? You ladies with kiddos with perfectly tamed locks... WHO ARE YOU?! My solution for keeping my hair in check is this easy turban headband. I give my hair a quick brushing (if Im lucky) and slip this on over top of my mane. Easy peasy! Here's how to make your own.

You'll need:
A strip of jersey fabric, approx. 36" long (a little longer couldn't hurt)
Scissors
Thread

DIY Turban Headband
First begin with cutting a long strip of your jersey fabric. I cut mine about 36 inches long and 6 inches wide. I used a thicker fabric but if you use a thinner fabric you could make the fabric wider so you have a nice knot in the finished turban.

DIY Turban Headband
Fold your fabric in half with the right sides together to form a loop. Using a zig-zag stitch, sew the seam together. Now you have a large loop!

DIY Turban Headband
Lay your loop out and cross in the middle to form a figure 8.

DIY Turban Headband
Twist the loop two more times. The twist will become the knot in the turban headband.

DIY Turban Headband
Bring the two loops together. You now have your finished headband!

I made a matching one for Audrey but she wasn't interested. She took it off roughly .002 seconds after I put it on.

So I forced Margaret to wear it instead.

  6. I too am desperate to know how the hell those mums with the perfect hair have perfect hair. I also want to know why there are mums at my playgroup that aren't covered in play dough. I am always covered in play dough. Always.
