For those of you who say you love the “no-sew” tutorials–I’ve got a treat for you! Actually, it’s for everyone, because this tutorial is just simple and cute and you can’t pass that up.
I bought this top at Goodwill, but when I got it home, I realized that it has a little stain on the sleeve.
Well, the fun ikat-ish pattern is just too cute to pass up, so I up-cycled it into a headband. Best part? You don’t need a sewing machine for this project–just a pair of scissors and some liquid stitch (You could even use a glue gun!).
I cut a strip about 4 inches wide and long enough to wrap around my head. Then, I overlapped the ends and glued them together with liquid stitch.
I cut a small strip, a little over an inch wide and just long enough to wrap around the “seam”.
I used the small piece to cover the “seam” of the headband and I overlapped it on the inside and glued the ends together.
And, that’s it! If you use a jersey knit, you don’t have to worry about the edges fraying. Isn’t this headband perfect for spring?
Would you do me a favor and pin this project? Thanks!
Enjoying the Good Life,
