No Tie Turban Style Headbands

     I really like the look of head wraps, or turban style hair scarfs. I do not, however, enjoy fiddling with tying the thing, or worrying about it falling out! The easy solution, just a 5 inch strip of elastic!

     All you need to make one, is some fabric, elastic, and two small pieces of ribbon. Cut your fabric about 25 inches by 12 inches. Tie a knot in the center. Scrunch up the ends like so. Don't worry about keeping it all even, its not supposed to be.

     Lay one of the pieces of ribbon across it, and sew it down.

      Stick the end of the elastic against the back side and wrap the ribbon around it. Sew it down nice and securely.

      Trim the ribbon pieces, and dot on some fray check. Do the same thing with the other side. All done!

      It's a fabulous way to use fabric that is too small for clothing, but too big just to toss. You can use any type of fabric you want. Jersey knit makes a very comfy soft version, that I just love.

       I made these for my Etsy shop. I may or may not have snagged a few for my own personal use too...a girl does need some variety when it comes to these things you know.
Hoping your week is off to a good start!

Galatians 5:22-23   But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
