  • Hot glue Measurements: cut out three pieces of 36” by 4” And one piece of 5” by 5”


  • Place your fabric on a flat surface and measure 4 inches wide and 34 inches long. You need three pieces of the same measurement.
  • Mark out the measurements with your chalk and cut it out using your scissors.
  • For the three pieces, fold the fabric inside out in two equal parts, 0.25 inch and stitch the longer ends.
  • After stitching, turn the fabric out to the front side. A pencil is suitable for turning out the fabric to the right side.
  • You can choose to press down the fabric with an iron on low heat just to straighten it out. However, it is not compulsory.

  • Weave the now connected fabric into a loose or tight braid, whichever you prefer.
  • After weaving, sew or stitch the other end as well.
  • Cut out any excess material and use the needle and thread to connect the two ends of the braided hairband together.
  • Cut another fabric, 5 inches by 5 inches, and fold them into two equal parts, but remember it should be inside out. Sew the longer ends again
  • Wrap the fabric at the part where the two ends of the hair band meet and sew it around the band.
  • Turn the fabric to face inwards to have the stitches facing inward, and secure the fabric with glue to prevent it from moving around.
  • After gluing the ends, allow it to dry and your braided headband is ready.
