    We will also need headbands, needle & thread (must match the T-shirt shade), a tape measure and a pair of scissors.

    Using a tape measure, get the size of the headband's length and width and add about 1/4 inch allowance on all sides. Cut the t-shirt based on this measurement and sew two ends, leaving one end open. Turn this inside out and slide it onto the headband. This should fit like a glove.
