Silk and satin help is versatile: It's naturally cool to the touch while possessing a breathable yet insulating fabric, which makes it great for all seasons. Our knotted take on the accessory is as stylish as it is functional. Make a variety of different colors to complement any outfit or mood. What You'll Need Materials Headband, 1" Fabric (May Silk Silk-Satin Blush Pink Fabric, Back Room Fabric Emerald Green Crushed Velvet) Rotary cutter Fabric glue Instructions Using a rotary cutter, cut two squares of fabric: a skinny piece measuring 2 by 13 inches and a bigger piece measuring 23 by 9 inches; on the bigger piece cut off the corners. Cinch the bigger fabric in the middle. Adhere the smaller fabric on the underside of the headband using fabric glue; hold in place and let dry to secure. Wrap the underside fabric around the headband. Tie the cinched fabric into a knot at the top of the headband. Tighten the knot to secure and fold fabric over the topside of the headband, tucking in the ends and securing with glue. Fold in the topside fabric onto the innerside of the band, loosely pleating from the bottom up and securing with glue; let dry completely before wearing.
