Sewing Pattern Love: Banded Beauty / Indygo Junction

Three modern takes on the classic headband.

What’s great about attending Quilt Market? Meeting with industry friends and discovering sewing patterns like this one! The folks at Indygo Junction are always putting out fabulous on-trend patterns, and the Banded Beauty is no exception! Headbands are fun and easy to sew, plus they’re a great way to show off favorite fabrics. You’ll use a variety of Dritz® elastics to create three different looks.

This is the Banded Beauty sewing pattern. It has three different construction options, so you’ve got choices when it comes to making and wearing this!

Ponytail aficionados rejoice! We just love how the Dritz® 3/8″  wide braided elastic is used here to create a gap in the headband, allowing your ponytail to comfortably slip through and lay flat. Can you say genius?!

It gets better. Make this headband with two different fabrics and it’s reversible, too!

Got a special fabric that you really want to show off? This sewing construction option uses a wide swath of fabric and provides more coverage. Dritz® 3/4″ wide elastic is used in the base of the headband; it’s a great choice because it’s twist and roll resistant.

Go boho with this twisted turban option. You can make it using a single fabric, or you can construct each band with a different fabric. Dritz® 1″ woven non-roll elastic is used in the base of the band.
