Turban headband sewing is my newest obsession! They’re made in no time and a great way to use the scraps or recycle old T-shirts.
For this turband you’ll need some stretch knit fabrics, a sewing machine, a pair of scissors and a measuring tape.
Measure the circumference of your (or your child’s) head with a measuring tape. If you don’t have a measuring tape or you’re making the headband as a gift, you can use THIS pattern with a child’s age as a guide.
Cut 2 strips of fabric. The length should be the circumference of your head and the width anywhere from 10 cm (5 inches) up. I like mine a little bit wider, so I made the strips 15 cm (6 inches) wide.
Fold both strips in half lengthwise right sides together and sew the along the long sides of the strips. Use one of the stretch stitches on your sewing machine (or a serger if you have one).
Turn each strip right side out.
Place the first strip on the table with the seam being on the middle and facing up. Then place the other strip perpendicular on top of the first one with a seam facing down.
Bring the ends of the bottom strip together and fold it in half.
Fold the second strip in half, bringing the ends together.
Bring all 4 ends together on one side and pin together.
Sew all 4 ends together, using a straight or zigzag stitch.
Trim off the extra seam allowance as close to your seam as possible.
And there you have it! Your own twisted turban headwrap!
