I've been making an effort to focus a bit more on myself lately. I snagged some cute bandanas for $1 and started wearing them with my hair in a bun of I didn't have time to dry my hair (or wash it, for that matter!). I tried them folded up, but just could NOT get the hang of it! They kept sliding off my head and it was not working out. Here's my 5 minute modification that made the bandanas perfect for me!
Grab a bandana and your sewing machine and let's get to work!
First, fold your bandana in half diagonally, right sides together. You can iron it first, but I like to live recklessly.
About 1.5" to 2" in (depending on how wide you want your headband) sew a straight line, parallel to the fold.
Cut of the excess fabric. I used pinking shears to prevent fraying.
Turn your headband right side out, center the seam on the bottom and press.
That's it, you're done!
