Do you want to make a hair tie in the color of your own choice? Here's how.
Method 1 of 2: Using an Elastic Hairband
Step 1. Buy an elastic hair band
Step 2. Measure the circumference of the circle
Step 3. Cut 3-4 pieces of fabric into rectangles 7.5-12.5 cm wide and the same length as the circumference of the unstretched hair band
Step 4. With the right sides together, sew the short ends together to make a long loop
Step 5. Fold the loop over the hair band with the other sides together and the right side facing out
Step 6. Pierce the long, unstitched side with a pin
Step 7. Using a sewing machine with a seam edge, make a round seam at the section to hide the crooked edge of the fabric
Note: this step can be done by hand, or by folding the top edge into a cm round hem using your hands, then embroider
Step 8. Put on a new hair tie in the color of your choice
Method 2 of 2: Using a Piece of Fabric
Step 1. Take a piece of cloth the same size as the first step
Step 2. Fold it lengthwise, right side in and sew the edges
Step 3. This part is a bit tricky:
Turn the fabric over to the right outside by pushing the fabric inward.
Step 4. Take a piece of elastic along the desired length of the hair tie
Step 5. Thread a safety pin over the elastic and push it into the hair tie
Make sure that the bottom of the elastic remains at the beginning of the seam.
