I love to make homemade gifts. I usually get a *little* too ambitious with the amount of gifts I plan to make and end up doling out gift cards, but I mean well all the same. This year I am planning to make some fancy headbands for my far away friends and nieces. These are a snap to make so you won't fall behind on your gift list! Step 1: This headband is supposed to be wide, so you will want to cut accordingly. My headband was 22in long, 11in at the widest part, and 4in at the bottom or base. Step 2: Fold your fabric in half length-wise. Step 3: With a machine or your hand, stitch along the edge all the way down. Don't close up the ends just yet! Step 4: Your fabric should look like this. Turn the tube rightside-out. Step 5: Fold one end under and tuck the other raw end into it. Step 6: Stitch the ends together with a machine or your hand and choose your favorite lady to gift it to! I don't know if you can tell in the photos, but I bought shiny and shimmery stretchy fabrics to make these extra fancy. 😉 This is a great DIY even if you don't have a sewing machine because it's so simple to do by hand! Happy sewing! xo. Katie

I recently found scrunchies and they help a lot. Do you have a tutorial for them? I haven’t had a haircut for years (lack of money) and, although my hair is long, many strands are short and fall in my face. This band should help!
Are all these items are handmade??
Really lovely gift idea
Our granddaughter has a friend with alopecia and the friends want matching headbands to support her. These are perfect!

This is just perfect for those left over fabric pieces. Adding this one to my to do list 🙂
These are SOOOOOO cute!!!!
So cute! I love DIY Christmas gifts and these are beautiful and functional. Now I know what I can make for those girls I wasn’t sure what to get. Plus, the fact that they cover your ears seems like big plus for the winter months.
Great gift idea! Sharing with my cousin who is the sewer in the family!
Oh boy do I feel you on the over ambitious with the making gifts 😉 So many ideas and so little time!
Love it! Love the hair too!
I love this look on you. You are so clever to be able to make these yourself. I buy mine, but I still love a gorgeous scarf/headband, especially on a day when my hair just won’t cooperate.
Oh I love these!!
I love easy and cute DIY gifts. These are so great for year round!
