Urban Tie-Dye Headband DIY


I'm all about the headbands this fall. So don't mind me if I make a million and a half tutorials for them in the next few weeks. Enjoy:

Tribal Necklace c/o Electric Sun Creatives

Supplies: semi stretchy fabric (a thicker jersey knit is great for this project), fabric dye, masking tape.
Pantry supplies: sewing machine, scissors, paint brush.

1. // Begin by cutting out the fabric for the headband. Mine was 10x30 inches. Then, pinch small sections and wrap the middle with masking tape, creating knots in various spots on the fabric.
 2. // Next, dip dye these knots, creating a fun pattern. I also took a small paint brush and added various brush strokes with the dye, giving it more texture.
 3. // Once the fabric dries, with the right side facing inward, fold in half and sew along the length of the fabric, creating a long tube. 
4. // Flip this tube right side out and tie a knot in the middle of the fabric. 
5-6. // Lastly, sew the ends together with the hem facing inward. Before sewing the ends together, measure it around your head to make sure it's a tight fit. I ended up needing to cut off an inch on each side. You will end up having a small hole in the fabric that you're not able to stitch with the hems inward.  Because of that, you can either hand stitch the hole or make sure that the hole is facing inward and stitch it on the outside of the fabric with the sewing machine. 


I had some left over fabric from this project so I wanted to make some available for you to purchase. I have four headbands available. The price below includes shipping.  *Shipping only available in the U.S. If you're not in the states and would like to purchase a headband, please email me directly at sincerelykinsey@yahoo.com

    I love how DIY projects these days are so simple. It means someone, as hopeless at crafting as me, has a chance at creating something beautiful
