Scrap Basting Diy The Best Fitting Headband

"All of us crafters inevitably accumulate fabric scrap stash. This simple DIY project is here to put your stash to use, create beautiful accessory that you can give a lot of wear. This hairband will have a perfect fit every time. It takes less than an hour to make one and sewing machine is optional. The problem I find with store-bought headbands is that they never seem to fit right: Either too tight and you might feel like your hair is being pulled or a bit loose and don’t hold your hair in place. This DIY headband is made with velcro closure to adjust the its size depending on your hairstyle and personal preferences."

NotesMake a set of 3 headbands, use different colors and/or fabric to create a cute gift for your friends and relatives.
