I love a DIY project that is quick, simple, and doesn't require a lot of supplies. Not only does this twist knotted headband/ turban click the boxes, it's actually practical and great for gifts. Sew up these headbands in less than 5 minutes with a strip of fabric. It's only 2 straight stitches and you're done. These headbands are great for working out, ear warmers, and as a stylish turban. I love making them for my little girl nieces who wear these all the time. Get the details below and make your own. I also did a full IGTV tutorial here on how to see these if a video works best for you.
fabric with 4-way stretch is best, think stretchy knits and velvets. Try a spandex for a workout headband.

Cut the strip of jersey fabric: Mine was 22" x 9". You can alter these dimensions based on your head circumference (measure with a tape measure) and cut the fabric length to that exact measurement. Depending on the fabric you may need to add or subtract the seam allowance. Make a wider version or shorter version by altering the width as well. Works great for children just use the child's head circumference.
Place lengthwise edges right sides together and sew with a zigzag stitch (1/4" seam allowance) or serge.
Flip right side out.
Place seam in center.
Flip right side over.
Fold in half with raw edges all together and right sides are facing.
Fold the top part down to the center.
Fold the other part toward the back and pin so it's even.
Stitch (zigzag) a slight curve as shown in the above diagram. Clip seam allowance down 1/4"
Flip right side out and tadaaaaa!
Now go make one in every color, print, and size for everyone in your life.
