Twist Headband - A Quick How-To Guide
Twist headbands are so easy to make and are great for a cute little accessory on your baby or a sweatband for yourself on your next run.
So follow along as I show you how to quickly sew up one of these bad boys.
*Knit Fabric (I recommend Jersey Knit): about 22" X 7" for the headband
Sewing Machine (able to sew a stretch stitch...like a zigzag) or Serger
Seam Allowance is 3/8"
Measure around your nugget's head to figure out what size to make the headband. This will be the width you'll cut your headband piece to. When I say width this measurement will be cut against the grain. Imagine the grain is running up and down, this cut will be running from side to side.
Now what if you don't have a nugget to measure because maybe this is a gift?
For that I give you this handy guide:
Youth 12 - Adult: 22"
For the length (and when I say length we're talking about cutting the fabric with the grain) use this handy guide:
Youth 12 - Adult: 7"
Step 4: Using a stretch stitch (like a zigzag or a serger) sew in the areas shown by the arrow.
