Here is a quick step by step tutorial for making this amazing hair accessory.

All you need is:

  • Fabric
  • Scissor
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Safety pin
  • Elastic

Step 1

Pick the fabric! I love reusing old fabric, like old t-shirt or dresses. I also love satin, It is so easy to work with it, and the final result is amazing!  

Cut fabric into 8.5 cm by 53cm strip.

Step 2

Fold the fabric length wise, right side inside and wrong side outside. Stitch along the edge. This process is easier and quicker if you have a sewing machine, but you can also hand stitch it.
