Fabric Headband (Free Sewing Pattern)








The Wider Style!




If you have been hoarding scraps of fabric in the hope that you will someday be able to put them to use, you will love this cloth headband sewing pattern! This takes less than 1/8  yard of fabric and is a very good way of using the left over fabric  from a dress to make a matching accessory. It will keep the hair out of your face while adding a touch of style. With just a  few quick steps involved, this project is sure to delight beginner and experienced seamstresses alike. This cloth headband can be sewn in  a wide variety of fabrics like cotton, eyelet fabric, chiffon and even knit fabric. You can experiment with the width of the headband to get interesting results that suit your style. Choose from different patterns like floral, polka dot, zebra prints or stripes. So what are you waiting for? Grab your sewing notions and join me as I walk you through every step of this BlissfulSewing project!


Materials Required

1. 1/8 yard of any medium weight fabric of your choice. If you want to make it wider, choose one that is flowing like chiffon or  lightweight cotton.
2. 3/8 inch elastic - you will need a strip that is 6 ½ inches long
3. Sewing Machine and sewing notions.

Size

Finished size is 21 inches. Fits tween to adult head. The pattern tells you how to make it in two different widths.

  35. I am making your Easy Peasy Summer Skirt for a 6-year-old; I would like to make this headband to go with it. How would I change this pattern to make it for her?

    Thank-you.

    1. Hi,

      Measure around her forehead and subtract 1 1/2 inches from it. That should be the final circumference of your headband. Reduce the length from the wide part of the headband and not the elastic part.
