Start with a piece of fabric about this size. 22in wide is ideal for an adult, the height can be more or less. Use a square bandana if desired.

Flip to wrong side up.

Then fold in to center.

It should look quite skinny, like this! It will expand nicely while using so don’t worry!

Put the hair elastics on.

Fold ends over so they touch in the center.

Here’s a picture of the ends folded over with the alternate shoe lace option (or any other tie, get creative!) if you don’t have hair ties.

Hand sew the two ends together. Do this anyway you like! Be careful not to sew the front to the back, you just want the two ends together.

Viola! You’re done! Enjoy this video tutorial if you learn better on a video.
