5 Minute Bandana Headband

This tutorial was originally shared at Positively Splendid.

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!
