Turban Headband with Crochet Bow DIY

Hi again! I’m Jess from Chaos & Love and super glad to be back! Last time I was here, I showed y’all how to make a fun Crochet Wrap Bracelet. This time, I’ve got a turban headband tutorial which can be easily made in any size. I’m really excited about this one!

Once again, I’m using upcycled jersey fabric – in this case, a men’s size large t-shirt that doesn’t seem to belong to anyone in my house. The only other things required for this project are a couple colors of yarn, a J crochet hook, a yarn needle and something to sew a quick seam (could be a machine or needle + thread).

What you’re going to do:

1. Make your bow “fabric” by single crocheting a rectangle that’s 9 stiches by 6 rows. Tie off and weave in loose ends on both sides. Set aside for later.

2. Lay your t-shirt flat on a rotary cutting mat. Remove the bottom, finished edge of the t-shirt. Next cut a 2″ strip of fabric.

3. For a tween-sized headband, you’ll need to cut your loop down to about 30-32″ total. Sew open end together with sewing machine or needle + thread.

4. To create headband, lay fabric ring out in an oval shape with stiched edges at the outside. Twist fabric twice at center.

5. Fold in half so that sewn edges meet.
