Follow these DIY steps to make amazing headbands yourself:
Things you will need:
- T-shirt (Choose the material, colour and print according to your taste)
Once you have selected your t-shirt, lay it flat on the table and cut the bottom hem. After that, cut two strips of equal width across both layers of the t-shirt. Fold them across the length on both sides.
Once you have the strips folded according to your requirement, cross them over one another and form a loop. Now measure the head of the person for whom you are making it and taking a ruler measure the folded strips to make sure that it fits comfortably around the head. Cut the extra fabric if there is any. Now cut a small piece of fabric and wrap it around the ends and sew it such that both the ends are joined to give it proper finishing.
If, however, your t-shirt is not very stretchable you can also add a small piece of elastic at the ends to make sure that it fits properly. Sew the elastic on both the ends to form a circle and voila your headband is ready. Wear it and look wonderful.
You can also experiment with different colours and prints and bring variety to your headband collection. You can also try making braided headbands, knotted headbands, embellished headbands and many more.
