Braided Headband Tutorial

MaryJanes and Galoshes blog has a wonderful braided fabric headband tutorial.  It has minimal materials and it's budget friendly!

What you need:
Thick hair tie
Six 1" strips of fabric
Bulldog clip or safety pin
Sewing machine (or needle and thread)
Fabric tac

I ripped my fabric strips so they were a bit frayed on the edges, personal choice.  Clip three strips together and braid. Did I mention this is going to be really easy! Your braids should be about 6 inches short of going around your head.

Tack each end of the braid just enough that it doesn't come undone .


Then tack both braids together on each end, be careful not to twist the braids.

Cut your hair tie so it's one strip of elastic.
Sandwich your elastic ends between the ends of your braids on each end, again, careful not to twist the braids.
Sew over the elastic so that it's secure.  With a scrap of your fabric, wrap the ends of the braids for a finished look.  I used fabric tac for this.
Your done!
