Sewing instructions for a hair band with a knot
1. Fold the two pieces in half lengthways, right sides together, pin and sew the edges together.
2. Turn both pieces over and iron out the seams. Fold the pieces so that the seams are on the side edges.
3. Fold one part in half. Pin and sew together the open edges. There are now four layers of fabric on top of each other.
4. Pull the second part through the part that has already been sewn, creating a kind of knot.
5. Pin the sewn end of the first section between the two ends of the other section, right sides together. Next, sew the ends together.
6. Pull the hair band apart so that the seams of both parts disappear. Fix the seam allowances with hand stitches at the edges.
And your quickly sewn and stylish hairband is ready.
