Now I've definitely bought my fair share (plus some) of headbands for Addilyn, but have made quite a few myself. Sometimes it is so much easier to buy them. Etsy shops have way cuter fabric and take no time, which is appealing for sure. However, these really are super easy, don't take more than ten minutes per headband and since I made them from old t-shirts are free!
I had this old apple tank top that I wanted to use. (Funny because besides being too short I thought this tank top was quite young and childish looking, when really I've just traded apples for foxes. Oh well. Young I am.)
For the yellow headband and many others I've made I used the bottom width of the t-shirt. This tank top wasn't wide enough to wrap around Addi's head so I had to cut it the other way. The only way to get a long enough piece of fabric was to use the back of the tank top.
Lay your fabric out flat and then fold with top facing each other.
Sew to make a long oval, leaving an inch or two to turn it right side out. If you're using the bottom of a shirt (or fabric), you'll have to sew a complete oval.
Cut off extra fabric and turn right side in. You could hand sew the hole shut, although I found that it just folds over nicely and since it's in the back you can't see it so I didn't. Then tie in a knot. Done!!
