  • Iron and ironing board
  • Tweezers

  1. Cut two headband shapes from fabric, using the pattern here. Place on a fold and add 1/4 inch to each side. Cut out one headband shape of fusible fleece.

  3. Pin wrong sides of fabric together and sew along the two sides using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

  4. Turn right side out - this can be a little tough; use a pencil and a pair of tweezers to help. Turn the edges of the two openings under 1/4 inch and iron.

  6. Cut a 2-inch piece of 1/2-inch elastic. Insert one end into one opening of headband and sew into place. Insert the other end into the other opening and sew into place.

  7. Leave the two ends unsewn - if you sew them together, the headband won't stretch when you put it on.
