If you're looking for an easy infant headband, these turbans are for you!
They're super soft, and don't leave marks like elastic styles. Made from jersey fabric, these are a washable, every-day accessory.

- You can buy jersey fabric or re-use a mildly used T-shirt for this project!
- Always iron fabric to ensure it lays flat when sewing.
- Measure your child's head to adjust the size of the headband. Just add 1.5" to the measured length to leave room for sewing.
- For an adult version, I recommend 8"w x 24"l.
