You will never buy an ear-warmer, fleece headband again after you make this. They are so quick to whip up. This pattern is adult sized .
The pattern is combined with a hat pattern it is the top rectangle shape.
1/3 a yard of polar fleece
simple fleece hat pattern
Print and cut out pattern piece.
Fold fabric the direction of the stretch. The fabric stretches more from right to left in this picture. Then cut 1 on fold.
This is what you should have
Fold the long direction and pin.
Sew with a 1/2″ seam allowance. Use a narrow and long zigzag for stretch.
Leave about 3″ not sewn towards one of the ends.
This part is not hard just difficult to depict. You want to bring the short ends together so you can sew them. You bring the left side through the tube to meat the right side.
Pin it together matching the seam.
Sew this seam competently closed with a 1/2″ seam and the zigzag stitch.
This is what it should look like.
Now it is time to turn it the headband right-side out. Pull the fabric through the opening in the long side seam .
this is what you should Have. This is a lesson in why you should match thread when possible. I used contrast thread so you could see the stitching. now it is showing a bit here.
Pin opening closed and work the seam flat. The seam should be along the edge.
Use a zigzag stitch to close the opening and top-stitch the rest of the way around.
Turn to the other folded edge and zigzag top-stitch to match. This will give a finished detail and stability. I did use matching thread here so it is a bit more difficult to see.
Now it is done! Enjoy!
