There have been so many posts about headbands lately that I couldn’t help but join in the fun.  I wanted some thing super simple and quick, but cute.  I decided to make some really quick head bands using ric rac.  There are so many different sizes (1/2″, 3/8″ and 1/4″ baby)  and colors of ric rac.  There’s even jumbo ric rac and velvet ric rac.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Ric Rac, various sizes
Elastic, 3/8″ wide
Fray Check

The different sizes: (These fit snugly, so if you want a it a bit looser, add an inch of elastic.)

Adult: 18″ ric rac, 4″ elastic
Toddler: 15″ ric rac, 3″ elastic
Bitty Baby (American Girl): 10″ ric rac, 2″ elastic

Cut your ric rac for the size you’re making.  (You can use more than one strand of ric rac.  Two or three strands sewn together at the elastic make great headbands too!)  Cut your elastic.

Using a sewing machine, sew the ric rac to the elastic, securing it in place.  Put a little fray check on the ends of the elastic and ric rac so it doesn’t fray.  And you’re done!  So simple.  So classic.
