I’m absolutely tickled pink with my gorgeous leopard wire headband, it was so easy to make and is a bit of a game changer for me. I have never been able to wear headbands or scarfs they all just slide straight off my head, but this wire headband has made all that a thing of the past.
This is an easy peasy step by step tutorial that will have you churning out headbands for yourself and family and friends, also if you want to make these for children just measure their heads and reduce the length of your fabric according.
Ok let’s get started!!
You will need
84cm x 16cm of your chosen fabric
87cm of soft playable wire.
Tape to wrap around the end of the wire
Pins of you need them.
Cut a piece of fabric 84cm 16cm
Fold in half and press right sides together
Cut a little triangle off both ends
So you have a piece that looks like this.
|Sew from the top of each point on both sides,|
and meet leaving a gap at the bottom so you can turn
it inside out.
Then turn inside out and use your scissors
to push your points out nicely, but be careful you don’t
go through your fabric.
|Twist your wire at both ends so you have a small little loop|
|Then cut some tape and wrap it around the|
exposed edges of your wire to add some protection
|Do this to both ends of the wire|
|Insert the wire into the casing |
and place into the pointy
Outer bits of your headband which will
be the longest side of your fabric.
