Happy Friday guys!
Today I’m bringing you an easy DIY project – just in time for the weekend.
I’ve been so busy with larger projects lately that I really wanted to make something quick and easy. I’m also in the middle of growing out my bangs/fringe so I definitely need something to help me look a little more pulled together.
So an easy DIY reversible headband it is then.
And to give it an extra twist I used some vintage scarves – the pink is a beautiful shot silk scarf I found in my mamma’s closet (shhh don’t tell). Of course, you don’t need to use vintage scarves – you could use any fabric you have to hand.
I love the fact it’s reversible. Party on one side. Business on the other.
I know, I know, I played it safe with two solid colours (I’m so boring). But I bet you’d be much more adventurous, right?
DIY reversible vintage scarf headband (in 5 minutes)
You will need:
two vintage scarves
1. Start with two vintage scarves (or spare fabric works well too). Give them a good iron.
2. Cut each scarf into a rectangle measuring 59 cm by 9 cm (23″ by 3 1/2″).
3. Fold one rectangle in half lengthwise so that the two short ends are touching. Make sure that right sides are together (RST). Sew along this short edge using a 1 cm (3/8″) seam allowance.
Repeat with the other rectangle.
4. Place one scarf inside the other so that right sides are together (RST) and the seam line from step 3 is lined up one over the other.
Stitch along one long edge using a 1 cm (3/8″) seam allowance.
Give this seam a good press.
5. Turn the scarf so the the right side is facing out.
Fold under the seam allowance – 1 cm (3/8″) of the unsewn long side. Press.
Topstitch as close to the edge as possible – I stitched 0.6 cm (1/4″) from the edge.
Topstitch along the other long edge.
