Simple and Chic Hair Band (with tutorial)

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

I took a walk to the mall shop for shopping groceries yesterday. In addition, I also went to the accessories store to buy  hair band. There I found a hair band that was sweet, but the price is too expensive. And suddenly, I found the idea to make my own using leftover scraps of fabric that I used to make a dress. Here is the result… my simple and chic hair band.

Here’s how to make it :

  1. You need  55 cm x 8 cm satin fabric for the band, 55cm x 10 cm and 8 cm x 10 cm satin fabric to make the ribbon. You also need a 18 cm – elastic.
  2. Fold lengthwise satin fabric that measures 55 x 8 cm. Sew along the sides and leave the ends open.
