Double Loop Bow Headband

Some people collect stamps, or coins, or ceramic pigs… I’m starting to think I collect headbands.  Many months ago I bought some elastic and I just keep making more headbands but they’re so useful!  As a mom I don’t always have time to tame my mane so I use a headband to control and distract attention away from the bad hair.

Here’s my latest:

Step 1: Make a headband from elastic.  I cut a piece of elastic to 21 inches and then sewed over the two overlapped ends to form a loop.  Or you can begin with a ready-made headband if you don’t want to have to sew.  The rest of this tutorial is no-sew.

Step 2: Cut three pieces of felt.  The rectangles should measure 1 X3 inches, 1 X 6 inches, and 1 X 8 inches.

Let me know in the comments if you make one.  I’d love to hear all about it!
