Honestly, I never was much of a headband girl. My boys don’t like to wear them either. Maybe it’s just our heads that are weirdly shaped 🙂 but we never seem to keep them in place. If they are not too wide, so that they stay in place, they probably don’t cover our ears completely.
So this year I was on a mission … to make a perfect headband that stays in place when the boys run around AND covers their ears perfectly. And I think I finally succeeded! I added ear flaps that fully cover the ears.
If you make them from two pieces, you can make one side fleece, so they are even warmer.
