DIY Twisted Turban Headband

With Winter in full force why not make something that's fashionable and practical, like this twisted velvet turban (headband). Not only is it cute and versatile it keeps the ears warm too! The supply list is short, with only 6 steps that take anywhere from 10-30 minutes. Make it in all types of colors and fabrics too but I love it in spandex velvet from Stylish Fabric. This blue is one of my favorite and they have many different color options to choose from. Even can be sewn in a jersey knit for a workout headband too. Get the details below and make your own. 


DIY Instructions:

  • Cut 2 strips of stretch velvet that measure 4" x circumference of your head plus 2".

  • Fold each strip in half right sides together, pin, and stitch with Coat's Elastic thread for extra stretch (1/4" seam allowance)

  • Flip right side out. 

  • Place seam in center.

  • Loop strips around each other and then pull edges to the side. 

  • Connect all the edges together and pin so right sides are facing.

  • Sew 1/2" seam allowance going through all layers. 

  • If you prefer to hide the seam you can wrap fabric around the seam or add some trim down the seam allowance (stitch or glue).
