As I’ve mentioned a few times recently headbands are one of my go-to ways for taming my hair for all the outdoor fun that comes along in the spring and summer. I’ve been making a few headbands to beef up my arsenal and today I’m sharing my newest- the knotted headband.
To make your own you will need:
- 2 pieces of knit fabric measuring 4 in X 20 in each (If you have a small head or want to make one for a child you may need to adjust the length a little)
- sewing machine (but if you don’t have one you could do it by hand)
- ballpoint needle
Step 1: Wash, dry, and cut your fabric.
Step 2: Fold your fabric strips in half lengthwise with the right sides of the fabric facing each other.
Step 3: Pin and sew along the edge. Sew 1/4 inch from the edge.
Step 4: You now have two tubes of fabric. Turn each tube right side out. Position the seam of each tube in the center of one side.
Step 5: Lay one tube down with the seam side up. Then lay the second tube perpendicularly on top of it with the seam side down. You should have an X like in the picture below.
Step 6: Fold the top half of the bottom tube down onto the bottom half. That sentence is not the most clear so look at the picture:
Step 7: No fold the other tube in half in the same manner. Make sure the ends of each tube meet up evenly.
Step 8: Bring all four ends together and pin them. Sew all the way across all four. Sew 1/4 inch from the edge.
Step 9: Flip the headband around so that the ends are on the inside of the headband. This way you won’t see the stitching.
And you’re done!
Along with a few cute headbands I like to use hair care products that help keep my hair smooth. I recently started using the new Garnier Whole Blends. They contain wholesome ingredients and come in a variety of lines to help meet various hair-care needs: Repairing, Hydrating, Smoothing, Refreshing, Nourishing, and Color Care.
I pretty much have the hair of a Shetland pony but Garnier Whole Blends Smoothing line with Coconut Oil and Cocoa Butter helps smooth my frizz-prone hair. I also love this line because the scent of these products is so soothing and tropical.
I picked up my Garnier Whole Blends products on my last shopping trip to Walmart. You can find them in the hair-care aisle and right now in some Walmarts you can find them in a special display in the main aisle of the store.
