turban headbands

Here’s a little something I played around with this past weekend. I saw these cute headbands on various blogs and thought they were pretty cute. Then during a routine visit to the fabric store I noticed lots of knits on the half-off bargain rack… who could resist? I caved and promptly purchased some knits to make some of my own!

I had plans to do a whole how-to spiel on making one of these, but I haven’t quite nailed down how to finish the back yet. The current method isn’t that great, and I’m determined to master a better way. And now, since I have my new toy¬†with me I can get right on that and whip up a tutorial for you in no time! (well, let’s hope that’s how it goes…)

In the mean time, here are some views of the headbands on…no commissioned models this time…bear with me and my poor modeling skillz:

p.s. I’m slowly learning how to actually code some things on this blog. I made cute little pinterest and twitter buttons on the sidebar. Check ’em out and follow me!

    Like them a lot and looking forward to the tutorial since–though sewing all my life, have yet to master a headband due to boy hair cut.

    But my pals are always asking for them–so on my list.

    Consider vintage fabrics and old sweaters for your materials. Upcyclers save the world since there are sooo many old textiles out there.
