needle and thread
or if you'd rather not sew a hot glue gun
First, lay out your shirt flat.
Now cut the bottom hem off the shirt along the edge. set that aside we'll use it later.
cut 3, 1 inch strips. front and back of shirt together in the cut.
Cut off the ends of the shirt on both sides. keep the strips together in half though. Basically, you want to end up with six strips. Sew one end together and begin to braid, 2 strands together. a 3 strand braid.
Finish braiding and sew the other end. Hot glue it if that's your preference. I just hand sewed this, but you can certainly use a sewing machine too.
Now remember the end hem of the shirt? We're going to use it here. take and cut a about 2 inches long. Sew the 2 ends of your braid together, then wrap in the hemmed strap and sew that closed. For extra security while sewing try to sew the hemmed strap onto the braid itself too.
Here's my princess wearing her new headband! She needs more in different colors now.
Stay tuned for a different version coming tomorrow! Out of 1 T-shirt you could easily make 3 headbands.
