Make a plaited headband

    1. Cut 12cm x 80cm pieces from three different patterned jersey fabrics. Lay them one on top of the other and pin them together at one end. Attach this end to something stable and plait the three pieces evenly.

    2. Braid until you reach the end of the fabric strips, adjusting them if necessary as you go to ensure no wrong sides show. Pin the three ends together. Check the fit, then take both ends of the plait and pin them right sides together.

    3. Machine stitch across the band ends with a 1.5cm seam allowance, it may be quite thick in places, so adjust your needle height if necessary. Trim the seam to 1cm, snip the corners and turn back to the right side.

Create a knotted headband

    1. Cut 24cm x 80cm from one jersey fabric print and set aside. Cut three 4cm x 100cm pieces from a coordinating design. Using these, create a braided band as you did for the plaited style headpiece.

    2. Lay the plaited fabric centrally onto the piece you set aside and tie the ends together in a simple knot. Adjust this until it is central and you’re pleased with how it sits. Check the fit, then pin both ends of the fabric right sides together and machine stitch across the band with a 1.5cm seam allowance. Trim the seam to 1cm and turn back to the right side.
