Knotted Headwrap

I am in love with knit Headwraps.  They are my new obsession!!!!  I'm trying to grow out my hair, that means not using my blowdryer and flat iron as much.  These headwraps help hide my greasy roots and give me a ton of styling options!  They are also great for babies as they are so soft.  My girls also love them.  Really I can't think of anything bad to say.  Now that I have talked these babies up lets get to how to make them yourself.  They are so quick and easy to make.
You don't need very much fabric to make these darling headwraps. 
1/4 yard of knit will make 2 headwraps.
I have also used leggings that my daughter has outgrown.

With the 2 smaller pieces fold in half right sides together.

Fold in half again and pin.
Cut a curved shape as shown below. Make sure not to cut off the folded edges.

Now that everything is cut out lets start sewing!
Fold the long band piece in half lengthwise with the right sides together.  Using a large zigzag stitch sew along the long raw edge.

Turn right side out and lay flat so the seam is down the center.
Fold in half with the seam facing out.
Stitch together along the short end.  Set aside.
Place the 2 bow pieces right sides together.
Stitch all the way around leaving a 1" opening in the middle on one side.  Clip ends making sure not to cut your stitching.
Turn right side out and push out corners.
Place bow on the back side of the band.
Tie the bow over the seam in the band and pull tight.  There you have it!  Easy peasy!  Now go make hundreds of them:0)
Stay tuned in the next couple weeks I will be posting about all the different ways you can wear these cute headwraps. WooHoo!
