Hairbands and hair accessories are still a huge trend this winter and they are super easy to make with fabric scraps!
In this DIY I will show you a simple way of making a knotted fabric hairband. I used the Ruby Star Society fabric in Spark Mustard (which is half price in our sale)
You could also embellish your hairband with beads or pearls for a fabulous party look and these would also make great stocking fillers!
You will need:
A plain hairband ( I got mine a few years ago from eBay)
A strip of fabric
Glue gun or fabric glue, if you don’t want to use glue you can hand stitch instead.
Basic sewing kit
Lets get started!
Cut a rectangle of fabric measuring 21” x 7”. Fold fabric in half right sides together and sew down the long edge leaving a gap of 2” in the middle (to turn through)
Press the strip so the seam is in the centre and then sew the short edges
Turn through the opening you left when sewing and press
Place the hairband in the middle of the fabric strip and tie a knot.
Arrange the knot so you are happy with it and that is nice and centred making sure the rest of the fabric reaches the ends of the hairband.
Fold in and hot glue the bottom sides down starting one side and folding over the other side.
