Beginner’s Guide to Sewing (Ep 8): Headbands

written by Sarah

Welcome back to the Beginner’s Guide to Sewing! Last week you learned all about elastic and it’s time to put those skills to test. In this episode, you’ll learn how to make a simple hair scrunchie (the 90’s are back!) and 2 variations of a headband. All of these are super easy and a great opportunity to practice sewing with elastic.

Not to mention – it’s a great excuse to get as funky creative as you want. These are hair accessories, after all!

All you need is some scrap fabric, some elastic, a sewing machine, and your creativity!

I downloaded the headband and scrunchie pattern but when I tried to print it out, nothing appeared on the printer paper?

Hi Melissa! The link isn’t working for me anymore, either. I have technical support working on it and will have it fixed shortly. I’ll let you know asap! Thank you!
