Cut a 16 inch piece of both the grosgrain and velvet ribbon. Cut a 6 inch piece of elastic.
Fold the grosgrain ribbon down about 1/2 inch on each side and stitch into place.
Place the end of the elastic on the raw edge of the ribbon. (Sorry for the poor picture quality here.)
Place the velvet ribbon over the grosgrain ribbon, wrong sides together. Stitch the end into place. (I later discovered that I needed to fold the velvet ribbon under 1/4 inch and stitch to keep it from raveling. I used fray check here where I didn’t stitch it under first.)
Stitch down both long sides.
Insert the elastic into the open end and stitch into place.
The velvet ribbon keeps the headband from slipping.
I made these three last night. I’ll keep the pink and black checked headbands and give the brown one to my friend because it matches her tennis uniform.
These are very comfortable and quick and easy to make.
