DIY No Sew Turban Headband

I’ve made it no secret that I am a lover of the urban turban, not only for bad hair days, but as a hat sub in these freezing temps. After experimenting with a few methods, I present to you the easiest, most perfect DIY turban headband that requires no sewing whatsoever. Oh, and it re-purposes old garments!

Wanna make own urban turban?

You’ll need:

1 Old top, skirt, or dress with some stretch (cotton jersey will do)
1 pair of scissors
THAT’S IT!

1. Lay the garment you’ve selected to use flat and smooth it out, then pick it up and measure it folded flat by wrapping it around the crown of your head. It should be snug, but not loose or too tight.

2. Once you’ve established that it fits, lay it down on a flat surface and smooth it out again. Measure about 4-6″ from the bottom of the hem, depending on the thickness you’re looking for – the example shown is 6″- and mark the spot. Cut straight across, using a ruler if you need it.

3. Using both hands stretch your band of fabric a bit until the raw edges curl. Holding it tight with your fingers spread out at both sides, twist it in the middle twice so that the fabric strip forms a figure eight.

4. With the twisted middle facing forward, fold the figure eight in half so that the loops are stacked on top of one another. Put on your head and adjust as needed.

You now have a your very own custom turban headband without a single stitch! You also may have a newish crop top, which I would recommend sewing at the hemline. Bam! Two trends in one.
