Double Sided Fabric Headband Pattern

Hello blog world! It’s been a busy weekend! I hope all you Americans had a fabulous 4th of July. We had friends stay with us, a cookout, and my friends even had a baby shower for me. All the hustle and bustle really took a toll on my body though. I’m packing my hospital bag tonight because last night I thought we might be making an early trip (still a few weeks to go….but you never know). Now, it wasn’t that bad, but it was bad enough to make me think I need to have everything prepared. A BIG THANK YOU to my hubby for a ton of back rubs :)

Free Headband Pattern

I have this list of “blog” things I’m trying to finish up before baby E comes, so let’s see how I do.

I’m starting with this one: Double Sided Fabric Headband Pattern. I had so many ask about how I made the ones for my daughter’s teachers that I digitized the pattern for all of you to use and wrote up instructions.

Simple

You can make simple ones

Lots of fabrics

or more elaborate ones. I made these with leftover pieces from my daughters quilt.
Are you ready to make one of your own?

What you need:
-Download the pattern from here {there’s a 1 inch line on it to make sure it’s printed the correct size for you}

***A lovely reader resized this for her 2 and 5 year old and is sharing the pattern here!!!!***

-Fabric for the headband and elastic cover
-5.5 inches of 1/2″ or 3/4″ elastic (this can be adjusted if needed)

Notes:
-Always back stitch at the beginning and end of sewing, unless otherwise stated.
-Seam allowances are 1/4″ unless otherwise stated.

1. Once you print out your pattern, cut the pattern pieces out.

Pattern pieces

2. Cut out two pieces for the headband, making sure the pattern piece is on the fabric fold.

3. Cut out two pieces for the elastic cover (if you make your elastic piece longer, increase the length of these pieces as well). Again, make sure the pattern piece is on the fabric fold.

4. Cut your piece of elastic to be 5.5″ long.

5. Place the a headband fabric piece and elastic cover fabric piece down, right sides facing up. Then place the second pieces on top of them, right sides facing down. Make sure to match up the sides and pin together.

6. Sew down the sides of the headband and the elastic cover.

7. Turn each piece right side out. I do this by attaching a long piece of yarn to a safety pin.

Then I slide the safety pin through the what needs to be turned

and then pin one side of the end.

Tuck in the end that has the safety pin a little

and then pull the yarn on the other end and it will be right side out.

8. I use a long stick to push out the seams from the inside and then iron, but you can just iron each piece if you like. I just don’t like the fabric overlapping on the sides too much.

9. Now take the elastic cover piece and sew down each long side. This creates a middle casing for the elastic.

10. Add a safety pin to the end of the elastic and start to slide the elastic through the elastic cover. Make sure to stop before the end without the safety pin is inside.

11. Once the side without the safety pin is at the opening, sew it in place so it won’t go anywhere.

12. Continue to push the safety pin through the casing until the other end of the elastic is at the other edge. Sew that in place as well.

13. On each end of the headband piece,

turn in some so no raw edges are showing.

14. Slip in the elastic band until the place where you sewed is no longer visible and sew in place.

15. Repeat #14 on the other side.

16. Top stitch the sides of the headband part if desired (I sew closer to the edge than 1/4″).

They are simple to make and if you plan it well you can whip up a bunch at the same time assembly line style like. Then you have a bunch for yourself or gifts for the ladies in your life :) Most of these will probably be Christmas presents. Great, huh? And it’s only July!!!!!

If you make some, share with us in the flickr group or on the fb fanpage

    Great tutorial…I made my daughter a headband recently without a pattern and messed up the elastic band, so I particularly liked this post!! Thanks!

  5. Jana says

    Thank you for this great tutorial! I have tried it right away and made 2 headbands for my girls. I was surprised with the result – I have never sewn anything more difficult then a pillow but the headbands were easy to make and look wonderfull!

    “Where do you find these SUPER pieces of fabric?”

    Well, a lot of it comes from Joann’s but some are designer prints you have to buy online by Heather Bailey.

    so cute! I have made this style of headband before but never thought to cover up the elastic! Love it and plan to make 10 of my own.

    Thank you for sharing your pattern :)

    I love these headbands. We’re having our family reunion this week and this is gonna be a great little gift. I decided to make one for each of my nieces. Great instructions, too! Thanks!!

  11. Happy Together says

    Christie,

    I haven’t made them for little girls yet, but it wouldn’t be that hard to resize. Give it a try :) The elastic allows for a few extra inches for heads. Of course, adjustments can always be made if necessary. If adding a longer piece of elastic, just stretch it as far as it will go and measure it. Then that is how long you should make the casing for it.

  12. skk521 says

    Just wanted to say I love your tutorial. I just made one for my 2 yr old daughter with some slight modification to make it smaller. This is great!

  13. ab says

    I’m blaming my pregnancy-brain, but I cannot figure out how to print out your lovely pattern for headbands? (Other than printing out your blog post and guessing on the sizing)? Is there a direct link to the printable pattern? I really want a couple of these for my hospital bag (and just summer in general – SO adorable!) Thank You!

    Oh my goodness – ignore please my last comment – I *just* saw the link to the pattern download. Oh I feel so silly, I swear I’ve read your post in entirety at least 3x and I *just* now saw the link. So silly.

    I can’t wait to get started on these, they are so sweet! I also just “liked” you on fb and will enjoy hearing more about your adventures with crafts and kidlets!

    Thank You for the lovely pattern!

    These are so cute! I’ve made a couple already but mine keep slowly slipping up and off my head. I’ve tried using longer length of elastic but no go. Suggestions?

  16. Happy Together says

    Maybe try not putting the cover over the elastic? The the elastic might cling to your hair better and keep it in place. You could also try using fabrics with some kind of texture that would help it kind of cling to the hair more? Or just add a bobby pin or two to hold it securely in the back?

  17. bored_debord says

    Usually I get very stressed out reading pattern instructions because it’s like reading Klingon, but your tutorials are easy to understand, and you never skip a step. I hope you continue forward with this (and please make an adult size pattern for the “as you like it dress/shirt”.)

  18. Happy Together says

    Lisa,

    Unfortunately I am not selling any at the moment. But, my pattern is free for anyone to make and sell so you can probably find some making these on Etsy or something similar.

    Love these! I have tons of fabric scraps from other projects so this will be perfect. The only thing is I kinda have a flat head at the back so I don’t know if these will stay put on me. Will still have to try :) Thanks for sharing.

    Just found your website yesterday & made my first headband today. I’m wearing it with a huge smile on my face. I’d purchased tons of different pieces of fabric months ago & could never come up with an easy solution to make a headband. Add my complicated life (stay at home mom & we recently moved) and making the time to come up with an idea was just never important enough. Well… enter your blog & the pattern. I’m sooooooooo happy!!! I even made my first while my baby was napping so I feel like a rock star goddess. And how I love the headband… everything about it & the instructions, the pictures, the time & effort you put into sharing. Thanks so much for putting it out there. You really improved my quality of life for today & the future. I can’t wait to make the rest & will do so in the ‘assembly line’ fashion. Ok, gotta go, the peanut is waking up, but I had to share my joy & appreication!!!!!!! xoxoxoo! Angie

    Yes! I believe in you :) You can do it! Just take your time and take a break if you get frustrated at all. It can be hard at the beginning when learning to sew, but the more you sew, the easier it becomes!

    Probably a stupid question but what changes do I make to the headband pattern if the line on the pattern is more than one inch? These are adorable and am planning on making a bunch of them.

  37. Anonymous says

    Never mind, I figured it out! I apparently need more coffee :) I thought the line was to be one inch from the top of the paper. Duh! I just made one and it seems just a tad bit too small so I need to play around with it a bit more to fit my apparently too big head. :) Thank you for sharing the pattern. This was quick and easy to make. Karen

    • Happy Together says

      :) I have those days a lot! lol. If you just make the elastic and casing longer it would be an easy fix. I just made the casing as long as the elastic would stretch out when creating the pattern.

    Love the fabric you used on these headbands. Looks like something I would do. Thanks for sharing your pattern. I just started wearing something like this to keep my frizzies hidden! Can’t wait to finish my current project to make some of these.

    These are darling – I’m going to make some! Loved your tip for turning the headband, I wish I’d know it last week when I was turning several tubes :)

  40. Anonymous says

    I made several of these as soon as I saw the pattern. 5.5 inches of elastic is not nearly enough to go over the head. I increased the elastic to 7 inches and lengthened the band to between 16 and 18 inches (depending on the fabric I had available). I used bandanas as the fabric for both sides. One is a hippy Love print, the other is a blue camouflage. Next will be a red watermellon print, and then a blue star patriotic print. These are mostly for an exercise class and are especially good for long hair that doesn’t like pony tails.

  41. sally griswold says

    Just had to tell you that I SO appreciate the time you put into this tutorial, the pictures and instructions are SO clear. I made one for my daughter months ago and am about to assembly line a few more so came back. THANKS!!!

    Lovely clear tutorial but made it and its way too small for my head, so might adjust to fit my daughter. Agree that needs more elastic and a larger elastic cover piece… but still super lovely and i am pleased with the result!

  43. Anonymous says

    Oops…just posted a comment then realised i didn’t cut the elastic cover fabric on the fold which is why it was small… no wonder it was small! haha silly me… try again…

  44. Erin Kelly says

    Thank you so much for taking the time to create a pattern and tutorial.

    I had been making these headbands for awhile for my 4 year old daughter but could never get the sizing right – until I found your tute! Also, the addition of the elastic casing is *very* professional looking and polished. I will never go back to plain elastic backs after this now that I know how to do it neatly.

    I just made a TON of these headbands tonight for both my daughter and a little girl we know of (daughter of a cousin’s friend) going thru chemo. I am sure the HB’s will make her smile for a bit and make her feel girly. I’ll be making about ten more tomorrow as I sit indoors in the AC ;)

    Thanks again!

  45. Erin Kelly says

    ps. I went up to 6.5 inches with the elastic and found it fits alot nicer. My daughter and I have large heads maybe? lol… I guess it depends on the elastic you use in all seriousness. I used half-inch braided elastic. It stretches nicely and doesn’t hurt. Woven elastics are too stiff IMO.

    Thanks for the super cute tutorial. I ran into a small problem though…..because I am cheap and dont want to replace my ink in my printer I sent your patern to kinkos only to find out that you have a copy right on the pattern. Of course they wouldnt print the pattern but I am confused. In a previous post you said we could make and sell them….can you clarify it… is it ok to print the pattern?

    • Happy Together says

      Hi :) The copyright is just stating that someone can’t take my pattern and say it is one they made or sell copies of it. You are more than welcome to print it and sell items from it :) If they won’t print it, maybe you could go to a library and do so? I will not be near the computer that file is saved on for a bit, so I cannot change it and then send it to you for printing purposes for a while. But, if that is what you need, just email me at jessicafediw@yahoo.com and we’ll get it straight.

      Thanks, I didn’t think about the library good call. We are doing them for a Super Saturday at church and wanted to make sure they had a pattern to make it easier. Just wanted to make sure, I need them pretty quickly so the library it is. Thanks again for the clarification.

    Do you have instructions on making the four fabric bands like you show in the pictures. I work at a quilt shop, one of our customers wants us to host a birthday party for her 13 year old daughter and friends. I am trying to figure out a way to have the bias seams done so the girls can just lay your pattern down and cut out the pieces. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

      You are welcome :) I just recently added a link up there of where another reader made a pattern for smaller children. Did you see that by chance? Or are you going for a different size than hers as well? I would make both smaller for sure. I figured the headband length by measuring from bottom of one ear to the other. Then the rest of the length around the back was the length of the elastic plus enough for seam allowance. I played around with the headbands width until I liked it, but I know others have made it smaller and I think that would be a good idea for a child’s as well. I hope this helps somewhat. I just haven’t sat down yet and down a child’s one. I should add that to my list though as many ask about it :)

    • Happy Together says

      Hi :) Are you able to print out the pattern pieces? I don’t have one near me at the moment, but I can look it up and measure one if needed. I know some people have said it was a little small for their head, so they just made the elastic part longer.

    Love the tutorial and finished project, but I am having a hard time with turning the pieces right side out once sewn, any suggestions?

  56. Sara says

    I love these so much. I just made one for my daughter with the kid pattern that is linked. The whole thing was super duper easy, i did have one issue though…when you connect the fabric/elastic piece to the headband i couldent get the rough edges of the material to fold in and there was no way that the elastic pieces were gunna fit into the little opening if i could. so i ended up just swing the rough edges over each other. they dont look as “complete” as your do, but i dont know what else to do to make it connect ant look finished. any suggestions?? Maybe should I use a thinner elastic and cut the piece that goes over it so its thinner??

    • Happy Together says

      Thank you for sharing! I haven’t made a little one yet, but yes, I would suggest just doing a thinner elastic or redo the pattern yourself so that the bottom ends will be wide enough to hold the 1″ elastic.

  57. Anonymous says

    Do you have any suggestions for adjusting the elastic size? I made one with the 5.5 inch and it was rather small, then I did 8 inch and it was a little big for me but my daughter couldn’t get it over her head! Just looking for a happy medium! Otherwise its perfect!

    • Happy Together says

      Hi :) I would suggest sewing in a longer piece of elastic (like the 8″ piece) just on one side then kind of try it on to see what would be a good length for your head size. Hold the other side in place and make sure that you can get it on and off the way you like it. Then trim it and sew in that side. And if you make the elastic longer, make sure to make the casing for it longer as well so it will stretch with the elastic. Hope that helps :)

    • Happy Together says

      How sweet of her! The idea was from a combination of things. I had some fabric headbands, similar to this but more full in the top part, but I wanted to be able to make some from the pretty fabrics I had. I also looked at other in stores like Claire’s, etc. for inspiration. So I decided to make up my own pattern and then share it with everyone :)

    I love this tutorial! It’s so easy to take scraps from a project and make a cute, matching headband. I started teaching sewing lessons at my house for our homeschool program, and this will be our first thing to make on the machine. By the way folks, it’s easy to adjust this pattern for younger and smaller heads. Just stick it on your printer/scanner, shrink it down by 15%-25%, and voila…that’s it. ;-) I found 15% to be just right for my students, who are 8-11 years old.

    These are so cute and thank you for sharing!
    I don’t understand where the patterns shows “cut 2 on fold”… Should I actually cut through the fold or am I supposed to have a double piece of fabric?
    Sorry for the silly question, I’m trying (unsuccessfully) to learn how to sew :)

    I’m picturing if I was cutting a heart out of paper. Do I want the whole heart or just half?
    Thank you so much!

    • Happy Together says

      Hi Lauren :) Good for you for teaching yourself to sew! That’s what I did. So, you do not want to cut the fold. You will see that term a lot on sewing patterns. You cut “the whole heart”, not just half. The “fold” is literally just where the fabric is folded.

    Love these headbands! I think I am doing something wrong because the elastic casing doesn’t gather like yours does. Rather than stretching and shrinking it’s pretty flat. Should I be cutting the elastic smaller than the elastic cover piece? Should it be snug when the elastic goes through the cover piece?

    Thanks!

    • Happy Together says

      :) Glad you like them. Either the casing isn’t long enough (the pattern piece should be placed on the fabric fold to make it longer) or the elastic is too long. Basically, the elastic should be shorter than the fabric piece. Then when stretched, the fabric has room for it to stretch. I hope that helps. The length of the fabric and elastic can be altered to fit any head, so as long as you can make it work, I say it’s good ;)

I would like to inform you that I used this pattern to teach my students and we made a whole bunch out of our scraps. We are joining a village bazaar in our neighborhood this weekend and we will be selling the headbands that the kids made. Proceeds from our sales will be donated to help our brothers and sisters in the southern part of our country who are now suffering the devastation that Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan had left them. You may check out how the headbands turned out in my facebook page “seweasyforkids”. Please know that I consider you to have been part of this humanitarian effort.

    Thanks for the pattern, I was making some pocket tees (pockets to sew on t-shirts, some with monograms, some with out, and my daughter asked if I could make her a matching headband, how creative of her to think of that. Thanks so much for the pattern, can’t wait to make these, this will double their gifts, – pocket tee and matching headband!!!

    Thank you SO much for this tutorial!! I have looked at about 30 headbands and this is by FAR the prettiest and most well done! My search is over. You’re great!!!

      Hi :) I do not unfortunately, but I know that the lady that created it does speak English if you would like to email her. Or I would suggest using google translate maybe? It would be made the same way as the adult size, just a different length of elastic.

    I made my first headband as per your instructions. The practice one I did was easy. I will have to extend the length of the headband part a little, as I wear the headband just above my forehead, covering my hair.

    I’ll be making a few for work, as my hair still hasn’t grown long enough to go into a ponytail.

    I may even make a few and see how well they work for sport.

    Thanks for sharing the pattern and how-to!
