Step 1

Download this template and cut a piece of single sided-fusible interfacing


Step 2

Iron the interfacing onto a piece of fabric using guidelines from the interfacing package.  Trim the fabric to within 1/2″ of the interfacing


Step 3

Cut the reverse fabric to the same size as the front fabric (I strongly recommend corduroy, as it grabs the hair and won’t slip.  Be sure to cut the corduroy  so that the grooves of the corduroy are horizontal along the headband).  Cut two 15″ strips of ribbon and secure them with a pin between the two layers of fabric.  Make certain that the edges will get caught in the seam on the end.


Step 4

On the other end of the headband, secure a 4-6″ piece of ribbon that is folded on the inside of the headband.  This will be the loop for the ribbon on the other side.  Again, make certain that the ends of the ribbon will get caught in the seam on the end.  Stitch around the headband, using a 1/4″ seam and leave a 3.5″ opening along the bottom edge of the headband for turning.


Step 5

Turn the headband right side out, using the ribbons to pull the ends through.  Topstitch along the edge of the headband to close the seam, or hand-stitch the opening closed.


Step 6

Voila! Your headband is ready to wear!


Step 7

Secure the headband by slipping one of the long ribbons through the loop and cinching it snug around the head.  Using both of the ribbons, tie a bow in the back or on the side.


All done!

The best headband ever!  This one was made using “Texture Magic” on the fabric before cutting.  Pretty cute, huh?

    It would be great if you could put the template in pdf format so it can be printed. I have tried to print it from your link and it comes out cut off and I cannot tell how long it is supposed to be.
