I had an old shirt that I was about to donate, but I loved the print so much I wanted to find something to do with it. I love the twisted headbands I have been seeing everywhere and decided to make one of my own.
knit fabric (or old t-shirt)
STEP 1: Cut two strips out of the knit fabric. that are double the final width you want your headband straps to be. My strips were approximately 4 in x 20 in.
STEP 2: Fold each strip in half (with right sides facing) and sew down the long side of raw edges. Flip right side out. Now you will have two "tubes".
STEP 3: Lay out tubes (seam sides up) in the shape of an "X".
STEP 4: Fold strips over so that they are linked together, matching up the raw edges.
STEP 5: Take the unfinished headband and wrap around your head to see how tight to make it. Line up all raw edges and sew together with a straight stitch. Cut off any excess.
STEP 6: Flip seam to the inside of headband and wear!
