DIY Reversible Headbands

Soon I will have a week at Lake Powell followed by a week of Girls Camp, which means desperate times for my hair. I wanted something to help mask the bedraggled look I usually sport for each of those hairdryer-lacking weeks. These headbands are a perfect use for small scraps from the fabric stash and a great way to add style. Plus they are super quick to make (like 20 minutes). I'd like to make 100 of them! I'm obsessed with this first fabric. It has a fabulous subtle sheen to it. I'm planning to make a maxi skirt with it too.

I wish I had a better picture than this. Photography is my weakness. Or maybe it's modeling.




And guess what. I'm going to share the pattern with you! Just click the picture below, then right click on it to save it.
And here's a little tip: If you don't have elastic, you can use the elastic from an old bra strap! If you look closely you can see that each of these 3 headbands has a slightly different type of elastic (all the same width though).

you can't look cute at lake powell. It is against the rules! But if you insist on looking cute, you must make a couple for me. My hair is crazy!

Sorry about the link going bad. I've fixed that and it should now be accessible. The measurement for the fabric is true to the pattern, but if your head is larger or smaller you can adjust it as needed.

I found the best Alaska Fishing Guide website said...

Perfect! This is exactly what I was looking for. I could see it in my head and you perfectly provided the tutorial to make it reality. Thanks!!
