{31 Days of Pinterest Completed} Jersey Headband


pin link / source

My niece Nora is a girl who likes pretty clothes and pink. For her birthday, I made her a headband like this out on hot pink jersey. (In fact, it was leftover fabric from the yo-yo shirt I made refashioned.) It was really easy to make and didn't take that long. 

Cut your strip of fabric about 2 1/2 inches wide and a little shorter than your head circumference. Overlap your ends a big and sew up with loose stitches. When you get to the end, gather the stitches as tightly as possible. Then sew (or hot glue) on your embellishment. I used an extra large yo-yo with a button center. 

* Since I forgot to take pictures of this project before sending it to the birthday girl, my sweet sister-in-law sent me these pictures for this post. Thank you, Sarah!
