Turban Headband Tutorial

A few weeks ago I saw this "turban headband" on Much Love, Illy and loved it!

Want to make your own? 

Here's how!


old shirt (preferably knit, but you can use cotton too)
Sewing Machine

Here's my old shirt:

however wide you want your headband, cut out twice that.

Remember to cut out 2 strips or it won't fit around your head!

Fold right sides together and sew all the way down.

Should be inside out, turn it right side out (is that even a correct term? :P)

Ok, this is where it gets a little confusing, if you have any questions, comment or email me :)

Take both ends and follow directions below:

Sew ends down, so that the "knot" will stay.

It really is super easy and SUPER CUTE!!!

Simple but so cute! 

Let me know if you try it!

BTW - I just updated the About Me! page, it was pretty boring.... :)


  1. I think my favorite thing about this whole post is the bottom picture. BTW, I'm totally going to make this for myself. Because SOMEONE won't make me a headband....
