Want to learn how to sew a headband? This super simple DIY Headband Tutorial is about the easiest headband to you can make!
Well, it’s official… We are back to school!
I haven’t done too much back to school sewing as of yet. We mostly wear our summer shorts and tees for the first month or so. (and this year, I stocked up on quite a few of the $3.88 graphic tees from Crazy 8.)
I will say, (other than underwear and socks, lol) there is one item we can never have too much of… Headbands and hair accessories!
My Missy definitely loves her headbands. She has wispy flyaway hair and even though we keep her hair pulled back in ponytails and braids, her hair always ends up in her face. (Plus, I just love the look of a headband with a ponytail!)
When I first tried one of these headbands on my missy, it was a warm, humid day and her hair was down. She loved it immediately and the first thing she said about it was how much she loved that the headband lifted her hair off her neck! She officially named it the Best Lil’ DIY Headband Ever!

This headband tutorial is really easy. There’s no elastic- it’s just two strips of fabric sewn together and flipped around. (or just one piece if you don’t make it reversible) I do recommend using a knit fabric as the extra bit of stretch will make the headband stay in place a bit better. It’s a great project for someone learning to sew and would also make a cute item to sell at craft fairs. I think I will even suggest it to my lil missy for her business fair project this year.

How to sew an easy DIY Headband
Step 1: Cut 2 strips of fabric 29 inches long by 2.5 inches wide. The stretch of the fabric should run in the direction of the long side.
Step 2: Line the fabric strips up, right sides together. Starting near the center of the strip, sew all the way around fabric, leaving a 1.5 inch gap in the center.
Step 3: Turn headband through the opening.
Step 4: Press the headband all the way around. F folding the seam allowance of the opening toward the inside.
Step 5: Sew the opening closed, with your machine (stitch will be visible) or by hand with a hidden stitch.
That’s it, repeat the steps ’til you have as many as you need!
