I went into Joann's and Walmart the other day and bought a couple yards of faux leather, ribbon and elastic to make headbands for myself. I love comfortable headbands!
All you need is about 24 inches of material and about 3 inches of elastic to make a headband. I've learned that the perfect headband measurements for my head is 20 inches of material and 2 inches of elastic.
All you need to do is sew the ends of the materials to the ends of the elastic. Be sure to front stitch and back stitch a few times on each end to prevent breakage.
I love the way the faux leather hand and and the silver braided headband came out. :)
