Supplies:

  • Scissors
  • 1 3/4 Wide Waistband Elastic
  • Coordinating Thread & Needle or Sewing Machine
  • Pins
  • Measuring Tape (optional)

Measure around your head. Subtract two inches from the measurement. Cut elastic.

OR, FOR A BETTER FIT:

Wrap the elastic around your head. Pull to your preferred amount of tension. Add 1/2 inch. Cut elastic.

Sew ends together (right sides together) with a 1/4" hem allowance.


Open up the hem and flatten. Pin in place. Sew the flaps down with a tight zigzag stitch.



Done!
