Why? Well, because it's wonky and it has buttons, that's why. And if you haven't been married to Bryan for two and a half years and don't know what wonky means, well... in this case it basically means lopsided. Or, as I like to think of it as: asymmetrical. Which, I would just like to say--for the record--was done on purpose. By moi. Okay, enough of defending my ridiculous title and (perhaps) ridiculous headband. On to the tutorial!
Here's what you'll need:
lightweight fabric (about 1/16 of a yard)
-4 1/2" of 1/2" wide elastic
-2 medium size safety pins
-other 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 fabric and elastic
Also cut a piece of 1/2" wide elastic to be 4 1/2" long.
Step 3: Sew your short strip into a tube, attach the elastic, and turn it inside out
Step 4: Sew your wonky (long) strip into a tube and turn it right side out
Step 5: Attaching your wonky strip to your short strip
Step 6: Tidying up your scrunches
As I mentioned before, when I made my Wonky Button Headband I cut the fabric for my short strip to be 7" long instead of 8" long. This made it so the scrunches over my elastic looked rather pathetic. So I thought I'd tidy things up a bit. If you're satisfied with your scrunches, feel free to skip this step. But in case you find yourself in the same boat, I thought I'd let you know how to remedy lame-o scrunches.
Step 7: Sew on your buttons
Amanda for modeling our Wonky Button Headband for us. I don't know why she's majoring in English when she could clearly has a solid career as a headband model.
