Learn how to make a DIY knit headband with scraps of knit fabric! It’s a great beginner sewing project that makes a really cute handmade accessory!
When I workout or clean the house, it’s easier if I keep my hair out of my face. I love having a cute knit headband to put on that is soft on my hair and my head.
This sewing project is a great way to use up knit fabric scraps or to up-cycle t-shirts or knit dresses. You can make tons of DIY knit headbands in a short amount of time.
– knit fabric scraps, knit fabric, t-shirt, or knit dress – measuring tape – sewing tools – sewing machine – optional: serger
Measure your head with a measuring tape from the base of the skull up around the top of the head. Add 4 inches. Cut a rectangle that is length of the measurement by 4 inches tall.
If your scraps of knit fabric are small you can cut two rectangles with an extra 1 inch added for seam allowance.
If you use a t-shirt or a dress is okay to cut through a seam. Just make sure the seam is in the middle so that it’ll be on the back of the headband.
