Surprise Me!

This easy looped headband is a simple turban style headband made from knit fabric.  The looping of the fabric creates a great effect and is perfect for making a color blocked headband or for using two fun prints of fabric.

How to make a looped headband {Turban Style Headband}

Cut two pieces of knit fabric 4″ X 10″ each.  My knit fabric was nice and stretchy both ways so I cut along the salvaged edge. Using a rotary cutter makes cutting long strips of fabric super easy.

Stitch along each edge up to where the pieces are folded over each other. Be sure to back stitch to keep stitching secure. Tip: If you want a tighter finished loop, scrunch the fabric up tighter before stitching. For the tutorial it was easier to explain with pieces laying flat.
