::Best Band Ever::

June 12, 2007 at 7:04 am 99 comments

Headband that is. (I’m still working on the Bagsket tutorial…that thing is a beast. So here’s a quick something to tide you over.)
none

I’m seeing more and more headbands pop up so I decided to take a swing at it myself. I went through at least 20 prototypes before I finally nailed it. These fit perfectly! There’s a WIDE and a NARROW version. The WIDE version has an extreme taper so that you get the full pattern blast at the crown of your head, but it still fits comfortably behind your ears. The NARROW version is simple and easy to make and tapers nicely too.

Want to make your own? Read the full post for the tutorial.

Headband Tutorial

Materials:

  • Templates: Headband Tutorial Template Cut out the one (wide or narrow) you want
  • 4 inch piece of braided elastic (it’s better than the woven elastic)
  • 2 x [4" x 20"] strips of fabric that you love. Use different fabrics so you have a reversible headband
  • 1 x [4" x 20"] strip of moderately stiff single-sided fusible interfacing (I tried Timtex – it was too heavy)
  • Pins, Iron, Sewing Machine, Coordinating Thread, Blah blah blah

Notes:

  • These headbands fit most women’s heads. If you have a smaller head, use 1 inch less elastic.
  • Templates include the necessary seam allowances
  • I used 100% cotton on my bands, but you could use any ironable fabric you like. I would LOVE to see what you make.
  • Stitching the elastic in can be a bit of a bear if your feed dogs don’t catch. Just use the tip of your seam ripper or something pointy and firm to help “guide” the ends under the needle.
  • The interfacing is optional. It adds a nice stiffness and shape to the headband, but I made a few without any interfacing and they worked perfectly too.
  • I am not a seamstress by any means. My “templates” are pretty amateurish but they work for me and I’ve used them at least 10 times now so I think they’re solid. But consider yourself warned.

Step 1: Gather your materials kids!
none

Step 2: Following the manufacturer’s instructions, fuse one strip of fabric (wrong side facing) to the interfacing
none

Step 3: Fold your strips lengthwise and align the “fold” end of the template on the fold of the strip. Trace and cut or pin and cut both strips. The templates include the necessary seam allowance.
none

Step 4: Fold down each end of both fabric strips (along the “crease” line on the template) and iron.
none

Step 5: With right sides facing, pin the strips together and sew along each LONG side using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Do not sew the short ends together. Make sure to reinforce at the beginning and end of each side and take care when you turn the curve when using the wide template. I find keeping the interfaced fabric on top makes the sewing go easier. none

Step 6: To reduce bulk, pink along each side taking care not to cut into your seam. Pink up to but not along the short ends. Alternatively, you can can trim the seam allowance to 1/8 inch (don’t cut into the seam itself).
none

Step 7: Turn your tube inside out and iron flat. The turning is the hardest part of the whole thing. Use a large safety pin to catch the end of the interfaced fabric (don’t go through both layers). Use that pin to help turn the tube rightside out. Take your time…it’s worth it.
none

Step 8: Stitch along the side of the headband using a 1/8″ seam allowance (or whatever you think looks pretty). When you reach one short end, tuck one end of the elastic about 1/2″ up into one end of the tube. As close to the end of the tube as possible, sew along the end to secure the elastic. Backstitch and then forward stitch to reinforce this join. Continue down the other side of the headband.
none

Step 9: When you reach the other end, tuck the other end of the elastic into the end of the headband and sew as you did on the other end. Make sure you didn’t “twist” your headband and that the elastic and headband form a nice smooth continuous circle. Reinforce the elastic join at this end too.
none

Ta-da! A completely reversible, comfortable and secure headband.
none

none

Let me know if anything is unclear or if you run into any issues. Cheers! -Suzanne

    I just made approx. 20 of this for little gifts for my daughters’ friends both the narrow and wide. They look great! One trick my seamtress mom taught me years ago when making a tube is to sew a piece of string or yarn inbetween the right sides (you have to sew one end shut with the string and then leave it hanging out the other end then just open the sewn end with a ripper once right sides are out) then you just pull on the string helping it turn. Thanks for posting this pattern! Great fun! I loved the fabrics you used!

    [...] I’ve mentioned before that I have an abnormally large head for a woman. Really. I do. Especially since I’m only 5′3″. I have a really difficult time finding women’s hats that fit, and even in men’s hats I have to get a large or extra large size. With my recent disaster of a haircut I wanted to get a few thick headbands to wear as it grows out. But since my head is big they are usually too small and pinch and give me headaches. So I decided to make a few fabric bands. Last night I took some of my scrap fabric and tried out foofanagle’s best band ever tutorial. [...]

    I made my first one last night (and cut out 6 more!). Boy that turning was a real pain though. My fingertips are still sore!! I think the narrow one is easier to turn because that wide one has the small ends. I think on the others that I will just iron them and stitch them right sides out.

    I just made one of these today! Perfect! I have a nine month old and lost a lot of hair during and shortly after the pregnancy. Now all that hair is growing back and driving my crazy as fly-aways. It’s like growing your bangs out but all over my head. I have to wear my hair up because of little fingers which makes the new growth show even worse. This band is perfect for that, plus it easily fits underneath my glasses over my ears. Most bands combined with my glasses was very uncomfortable right behind my ears. Thanks for a great template and tutorial! Next project will be a couple of holiday ones! Can’t wait!

    I just made the wide one and love it! I left an opening along the widest part to do the turning and it worked out well — just closed it up when doing the topstitching. I was worried about sizing since headbands are usually too tight on me, but wound up with only 2 1/2″ of elastic between the fabric edges for a perfect non-headache-inducing fit. Thanks for the great idea/tutorial!

    WOW! I am super frustrated. I made the wide one and maybe the interfacing I used is too bulky but there is NO way I can get it to turn right side out!! Grrr…. Giving up :( These are so cute. Maybe I’ll give it a whirl some other day w/o interfacing and I am sure that will be much easier to turn right side out. I have no patience so that does’t help either.

    • 82. foofanagle  |  April 20, 2012 at 4:48 am

      I’m sorry you’re having trouble with the turning. It is the toughest part!

      A few thoughts… Definitely try a lighter weight interfacing or no interfacing Cut the ends of the band pieces slightly bigger at the ends. It won’t make a big difference in how the band fits but could help with the turning Did you try the safety pin trick to turn?

      I hope you can make it work next time you try!

      Cheers, Suzanne

    Just made one of each using your patterns! Turned pretty good considering I don’t sew very often. You’ve inspired me to do these for my three curly haired girls. Love it!

    Very cute but turning it was a bear! Made such a mess thankfully I have long hair and it covers the mess. Any help to turn it right side out??

    Great little tutorial! Easy to make and uses up smaller pieces of fabric. If you use a large safety pin to turn it is not a big at all. I will have to say this was WAY to big for my head. I’m going to try a shorter piece of elastic.
