Pattern Description: A super easy headband that is made from two rectangles. You can draft the pattern yourself easily.

Pattern Sizing: One size fits all.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?It looks like the one I copied the design from.

Were the instructions easy to follow?I hope so! Haha!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I like that it's so fast and easy. It's a great way to use up fabric scraps, and it's perfect for times when you want to sew but don't have a lot of time.

Fabric Used:Green silk.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:N/A

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I will sew it again and I would recommend it to sewing beginners, people who like headbands, or as quick handmade gifts.

Conclusion: This is a headband pattern I made by copying an existing headband I bought. The pattern is very easy and is only two rectangles. I made a tutorial for drafting the pattern and sewing the headband together on my blog, here.

Thank you for this great tutorial! I'm making one of these. I just looked at one of these with a hidden zipper for keys/credit card etc and said the same thing! Too much $ for what it is.

Thanks guys! @Carla - That's a great idea- I bet you could make one with a zipper if you made it double layer! You could cut one of the headband pieces in half, insert the zipper, and then sew it up so the zipper was to the inside, if that makes sense.
