How to make handmade headband 

Simple and cute !!!

Step 1. 1. Cut two 15″x 3/4″ strips from an old purse, cosmetic case, or whatever. It doesn’t have to be real

leather, in fact, the taupe version that I’m wearing is    naugahyde vinyl, I believe. 

 

1. Cut two 15″x 3/4″ strips from an old purse, cosmetic case, or whatever. It doesn’t have to be real leather, in
 
fact, the taupe version that I’m wearing is naugahyde vinyl, I believe. (From my stash, believe it or not!)
 
2. Start folding into two loops, a larger in back, and smaller in front, and mirror for the other side.
 
3. Put a dot of glue between layers. You’ll need a nice, strong E6000 type of glue, as leather probably won’t
 
hold hot glue very well.
 
4. Glue a 2″x1/2″ strip around the middle and then glue it to the headband wherever you’d like, holding it all
 
together with a clothespin (or by setting a book on it) until the glue dries.
 
5. Cut small slits about 1/4″ from the bottom of each side of your headband, just large enough to slide your
 
elastic (approx. 7″) through.
 
6. Stitch your elastic together with a zigzag, trim the excess, and you’re done!

If you’re wondering where I found the beige elastic, I just threw the elastic pieces in a small pot of boiled water

with 6 tea bags for about ten minutes! Easy!
