Headband Tutorial Part 2: The Band

Here is Part 2 of my T-shirt headband tutorial. If you missed Part 1, go here.

1. Okay, so first, cut the T-shirt straight across, under the armpits.

2. Now, you should have a piece that looks like this. Trim off the hem at the bottom, and cut the piece in half so you have two "tubes" of fabric. DON'T CUT DOWN THE SEAM!

Now, align the fabric so the two seams are in the center, like shown below.

3. Set your sewing machine to the largest stitch available.

4. Now, sew down the seam without back-tacking.

5. Once you've sewn it, you can simply pull on one of the threads to gather the fabric.

6. Now, sew a 1/4 inch on either side of the center. This time, use smaller stitches and back-tack. 
Then, cut the fabric down the center, between the two parts you just sewed.

7. When you flip them right-side out, you should have two bands that look like this.

8. Next, cut a small rectangle of the t-shirt.

9. Using a glue gun, glue the rectangle around the seam. This covers any "awkward" looking stitching.

10. Finally, glue down the rosette you made in Part 1... and you are DONE!
