Today I have a quick sewing tutorial for these adorable knotted headbands that have been so popular as of late. This is a really quick sew, and doesn’t use a lot of fabric, which makes it a perfect scrap buster. Scroll down for the tutorial!
Easy Knit Baby Headband
- Knit fabric (nice scrap buster)
- Sewing Machine or Serger, optional
- Knot pattern
Cut two rectangles from your fabric. One 6.5″ x 15″ (cut the length 1″ shorter than head circumference) the second 6″ x 11″. The direction of greatest stretch should go the length of the fabric.
Fold rectangles in half, lengthwise.
Sew along the edge of the 6.5″ rectangle using 1/4″ seam allowance and zig zag stitch. Print the knot pattern, center on fabric of other rectangle and trace.
Sew along line, leaving an opening where indicated. Use this to turn the knot inside out. You can topstitch the seam close, but since knits don’t unravel, I just left it open. Once tied, the opening is hidden.
Turn headband right side out. Then turn wrong side out half way. Line the edges up as shown below. Made Everyday has a great video that explains how to finish these headbands.
Sew round the two edges together, leaving another opening near the seam; then turn the headband right side out. Again, you can topstitch the seam close, but I just leave it open.
Tie your knot around your headband, adjusting so the openings are hidden. This also hides the seam too!
