50+ Cute & Crafty Headbands To Make
Posted By Tipnut On June 1, 2011 @ 12:25 pm In Crafty Ideas | 1 Comment
Here’s a fun list of crafty ideas for making headbands with plenty of different fabrics, materials and techniques found in this collection…some sewn, some knit, some crochet while others just require a glue gun, crafty bits and a metal or plastic headband to embellish. I’ve organized the list into two groups, the first batch features fabric & decorative trims, the second batch is a collection of free knit and crochet patterns. Have fun!
Pleated Tutorial : A scrap of fabric and interfacing are gathered together then attached to an elastic headband with a felt piece for backing, embellished with pearls or buttons.
Braided : A plain headband is covered with fabric then strips of fabric or trims are braided together and glued on top.
Ruched : Free pattern piece download (jpg file), made with felt, lightweight fabric and bias (can be store bought or handmade).
