How To Make A Colorful Braided Headband

Learn how to make a colorful braided headband with this sewing tutorial from Megan Nielsen. You'll see that learning to make your own clothes, and this case, accessories, can be really rewarding!

Braided Headband


Materials:

  • 3 scrap strips of fabric
  • Elastic

Instructions:

  1. Cut your fabric into 3 strips measure 20 inches by 2 inches. To get a slightly rougher look, rip your fabric rather than cutting.
     
  2. Place the ends over each other and sew to secure.

  3. Braid your fabric until you reach the end, and then sew over all 3 pieces again to secure. Make sure you braid consistently, ie. If you start braiding tightly, make sure you braid the entire length tightly.

  4. Measure your braid and measure your head. Now subtract your braid measurement from your head measurement – this will give you how long your elastic should be. Cut your elastic. You can really use any elastic, but I used fold over elastic because it comes in lots of cute colours.
     
  5. Attach your elastic to the ends of the braid by using a zig zag stitch.

  6. I also made another thinner head band using ½-inch-wide strips. For this one instead of laying the elastic flat over the braid before sewing, I folded it over the ends encasing them, and hand stitched it closed.
