* This post contains advertising in the form of PR samples that have been made available
Chic hairbands are all the rage right now. The knot hairband goes perfectly with chic clothes, is the ideal beginner’s project for learning to sew and is great for recycling small pieces of fabric. The free instructions from the Sewing with Textile Addiction Community are now also here on the blog. Have fun trying.
You will need these materials to sew the knot hairband:
This is how the knot hairband is sewn:
Step 1: First you cut two strips of fabric the width of your head circumference + 2 cm and 20 cm high. Then fold the strips right sides together and close the seam on the long side. Make sure to sew with a 3-fold straight stitch so that the seam remains stretchy.
→ I will explain the different types of stitches and what they are used for in detail in this post.
Step 2: Then turn the two strips over and iron out the seam allowance so that the seam is in the middle.
Step 3: Now you put both strips of fabric on top of each other to form a cross. The middle seam on both parts points upwards towards you.

Step 4: Now you have to interweave the two strips. To do this, first fold the right end of the lower strip to the left.
Step 5: Now, in the next step, take the two ends of the inner strip together and also turn them to the left.
Step 6: When all four ends are on top of each other, all you have to do is sew them together with the overlock * or the overlock stitch on your sewing machine.

Step 7: You can pull the thread ends back into the seam with a needle. Your self-sewn headband is ready.

Step 8: All you have to do is unfold it. The seam is now on the inside and cannot be seen when you are wearing it.
The finished knot hair band then looks like this. Here is my winter version to match my Cariba dress that I sewed myself in winter.
