About This Class

If you love the look of those wide headbands from the 1950's and 60's, but have a hard time finding one that truly fits, then this class is for you! You will learn to make a simple fabric headband that is shaped to fit the curve of your head in all dimensions and is held on with an ordinary hair elastic. Fabric requirements are minimal (this is a great scrap busting project) but the fashion impact is maximal!
