You will need:
-Two 3ox8 inch pieces of fabric. (If you used a non-stretch fabric, increase the length to 40 inches.)
-Thread (Preferably in a corresponding color. I used white so that you could all easily see my stitches.)
-Elastic (If you don't plan on using a stretchy material.)
-Needle or sewing machine.
1. Start by measuring and cutting your fabric. Make sure the fabric you choose is at least 30" in length. After you weave the fabric together it will shrink significantly so a little extra is good. You can cut the excess away later if you don't need it. Fold the the fabric lengthwise with the wrong sides together and pin into place.
2. Sew up the side with a 1/4 to 1/2 inch seam allowance depending on how thick or thin you want your headband to be.
3. Turn your fabric right side out. You should now have two long tubes of fabric.
4. The tricky part. Fold each tube of fabric in half and place them on a flat surface with the centerfolds overlapping.
5. Weave the ends of the top fabric (light blue) through the loop of the bottom fabric (dark blue). If you were to pull the fabric taught at this point, you will have created a knot. (The knot also looks great as a headband.)
6. Repeat step 5. Weave the top fabric (light blue) through the bottom fabric (dark blue) one more time. Now you'll have to mess with the woven knot for a bit to get it to look how you want.
7. Decide how big around you want your headband and sew the ends together. If you're using a non stretch fabric, you'll need to attach the elastic now.
