Here are the simple instructions:
- 1/4 yd. of fun ribbon (make sure it is the same width or larger than the Velvet ribbon)
- 1/4 yd. of Velvet ribbon (can be found at most fabric stores). The velvet ribbon is what makes the
headband stay put when it is on your head.
- 1/2" wide elastic
Step 1: Sew the raw edges of both types of ribbon under.
Step 2: With the wrong side of the ribbons facing each other, sew along the long edges. You'll want to leave the short edges open to slip the elastic in.
Step 3: With the ribbons sewn together, place the headband around your head to see how much elastic you will need. You want the headband to be tight, so cut the elastic so as the headband is shorter than the circumference of your head. This will allow the headband to stretch around your head and stay put. My elastic was roughly 2"-3" long.
Step 4: Slip the elastic into the open slots of the ribbon and sew the seams shut.
Now, if only exercising was this quick and easy!
*as a side note, I hope that you appreciate my sewing machine from the 70's!
