Velvet No-Slip Headband Tutorial

I came across these headbands when a friend of mine who had a daughter who was eight, said she wouldn’t buy anything else because they stay in her hair so well with the velvet backing.  I took a look at it and thought, well I can make that…and so I did!  I made more than just one though.  I made a bunch!

They’re really pretty easy and I am usually sporting one when I play basketball on Sunday nights with the high school youth group– something I look forward to every week!

Supplies:
  • ribbon
  • velvet ribbon the same width as regular ribbon
  • sewing machine
  • elastic
Game Plan:

1.  Cut both ribbons and elastic desired length to fit your head.

You’ll definitely want them to go past your ears but not all the way around your head because you have to take into account how long you want your elastic.

2.  Place elastic between the two layers of ribbon with the right sides facing together.

3. Sew the ends together, going back and forth over the elastic several times to secure and reinforce it.

You will want to sew with the velvet ribbon on top and you want your bobbin thread to match your regular ribbon and your spool of thread to match your velvet ribbon.

4.  Trim off excess.

5.  Put wrong sides of ribbon together, and sew down both sides of the ribbon.  Make sure to turn under the edges at the end of the ribbons that don’t have the elastic sewn to it.

6.  Make sure ribbon and elastic are untwisted and then insert the elastic into the other end of the ribbon.  Sew across the bottom, going back and forth across the elastic several times.
