<p>howdy! Anyone know or have a link to directions to make a wide cotton fabric headband? Not the ones with the plastic insert, or the scrunch at the back, but the ones made from like t-shirt material that are once piece, stretch about 1-2 inch wide and slip on? I just bought the goody ouchless comfort fit gentle headbands and they are awesome, BUT not cheap, and I have lots of old t-shirts that need recycling.</p>
<p>I could probably figure it out, but would love some advice or direction. I do know to cut the material on the bias to keep the fabric stretchy, but not sure on the measuring.</p>
<p>Thanks for any help!!!!</p>

<p>hmm, I think there may be headbands in DDs stocking. I really must stop browsing for new ideas and actually get the sewing machine out.</p>
