No-sew headband

I admit, this title is very enthusiastic, but it’s only because this no-sew headband was so easy to make it really made my day. Since I cut my bangs, I’m mostly annoyed with it, and I just hope for my hair to grow faster. I guess that I didn’t mind having hair in my eyes all the time when I was younger, but now I just don’t feel like suffering for beauty. I might have matured, or I got lazy ;).

And guess what – it’s not that easy to find pretty, but age appropriate headbands when you’re 30! Without flowers and ribbons I mean. And comfortable. Of course there is Etsy, but by the time my headband would be shipped, my hair would probably grow. And then I run across this idea somewhere on Pinterst. I also decided to use a sharpie to paint little black dots. All together it took me not more than 5 minutes!

What you’ll need :
white tank-top
black sharpie
tape
scissors

Place our t-shirt on flat surface, and measure a thick stripe. To hold your material still you can use regular tape like I did. Draw the lines of your headband (they should be straight, but don’t need to be perfect). Add the dots, on both sides. Cut it out.

Now fold it in to 8 ( or eternity).

Now can you tell that I love my new headband? I really do. It’s so comfortable! And it cost me nothing!

      I was using a typical t shirt, so it’s not really a fabric, just a piece of tee that has been cut.

    Thanks for sharing your tutorial. I was sitting here trying to figure out how to do this and make my headbands pretty. I’ll have plenty headbands because I have plenty tees! Thanks again.
