Now, on to today's headband tutorial!
It's pretty and petite. It's feminine and dainty. It's casual and dressy. It's the...
Want to make one? It'll take you about five minutes. For reals. Ready?
Here's what you'll need:
-a scrap of lightweight fabric
-a small piece of elastic
-general sewing supplies
-All seam allowances are 3/8" unless otherwise stated.
-This pattern is for an adult, but it would be really easy to convert the measurements to make these for a child.
Now let's get started!
Step 1: Measuring your head
Step 2: Cutting your lace, fabric, and elastic
Cut one piece of fabric 5" long and 2 1/2" wide.*
Cut one 2" piece of 1/2" wide elastic.
*My lace was about 3/4" wide. If your lace is much wider, you may want to make a wider fabric strip so your lace fits nicely inside. Or you could just bunch your lace up to fit it inside the fabric at the dimensions I've given here. Either way would be cool.
Step 3: Encasing your elastic in your fabric tube
Step 4: Attaching your lace to your encased elastic
Pin in place and stitch together, about an 1/8" away from the folded edge of your fabric tube.
Oh, and a big thanks to my friend Amanda for modeling the Pretty Lace Headband for us. Isn't she classy? I think so.
