3.Old Shirt or Scraps of fabric
Can you see the ugly purple and shiny colored headband? I think it would be adorable on a child but on myself it would not work.
For the first one I took fabric scraps and cut thin strips of white fabric I used my hot glue and glued the fabric to the headband and just wrapped till it was covered all the way. I then took my scrap fabric *contrasting* and cut one long strip of fabric and interfacing the same size. I folded the fabric and sewed down the middle. After that I hot glued my pleated piece to the headband and it was ready to be worn!!
I used the same fabric I used from my scarf tutorial to wrap this one...simple but beautiful.
This one is just white and I left the fabric to fray because I LOVE a frayed headband.
I I used jersey fabric and made a braid then hot glued it to the headband for this one.
Here is another pleated headband
I took a 40 inch strip of fabric and make it wide enough because your folding it in half length wise and running a gather stitch along the unfinished end then gather it and glue it to a round of felt. I glued a button and attached it to a bobby pin.

And that is it I made all of the headbands in about 30 min but I am a mother of two very active boys so it may be quicker if you don't have two crazy monsters running around ;)
