Knotted Baby Turban Tutorial

ImageImage

For this project I used a ballpoint needle, and zig zag stitch with the knit fabric. I also used a regular sewing machine.

The fabric I used is calledย Heather Ross Briar Rose Cotton Jersey Knit Strawberry Lilac.

I wasn’t able to find a free tutorial on Pinterest for these, so I thought I would share mine. Another easy project, and very cute with matching pants! This is a quick project- 20 minutes tops. Enjoy!

I would love to see your finished knotted baby turbans! Please share using hashtag:

    • Basically youโ€™ll fold the headband in half so the end edges are front sides together, youโ€™ll see the seam going down the middle backside facing out as shown in the picture. (With the seam in the middle of the back side you wonโ€™t see it at all when worn).Then just sew the ends together at 1/4โ€ณ seam with a zig zag stitch and trim off seam allowance. Let me know if this is still confusing!!๐Ÿ™‚

  1. This is probably a silly question. I was sorta playing around with a couple pieces of stretchy knits and when I tied a knot they got real short. Is it really head measurement minus 2-3? I’m afraid to cut lol.

    • Because the knit fabric is so stretchy, you need to subtract a few inches so the headband fits snugly around your baby’s head. You can always play it safe and only subtract an inch or even less if you’re worried- and then measure it on your baby’s head and take away more if you need. Hope this helps!๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Let me start by saying I am a beginner. This headband is adorable and very easy to make. I did have to add 3 inches to the length to accomodate my daughters head. Once the thread goes in you lose the elasticity. Am I doing something wrong?

    • Hi Lindsey! ll I did was tie a regular knot (half of a square knot), and manipulated it so the top of the knot is on the top of the headband, and I pulled it a apart a little to get the look I wanted of a bigger, chunkier knot).Hope this helps!

      • I am also confused about the last step. Did you tie the pieces together to make the knot or sew it together and use a different piece of fabric to create the knot?

      • I just tied the one long head band piece together in a knot, and centered the knot to the side where I wanted it ๐Ÿ˜€ And then sewed the two end pieces of the headband together to finish it off.

  4. Thanks for the awesome tutorial! I just whipped one up in about 8 min! And I’m a beginner! I wish I could post a pic, it came out so good! I have a boy so this was fun and exciting to make, my first girl project, I made it for his cousin so she matches his diaper and shirt I made for my son when we go to the aquarium this weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Could another type of fabric work for this project? For example, I sewed a swaddler blanket as a gift for someone that is made out of the baby/soft flannel. I was going to try this using the same material in a complementing color. Thanks!

    • Hi Jess! You could use a flannel but keep in mind it does not stretch as much as a knit, so the measurements need to be pretty exact. You could do something like this instead: cut two pieces of flannel (front and back, add a few inched to each end from exact head measurement (and curve or point the ends), sew together RST, flip out right side and you could just tie the headband on the head in a knot or bow instead. Just an idea! That might work better for a growing child. Using a knit lets the headband stretch over the child’s head and also grow with the child, while fitting snugly to stay on. Hope this helps! I also did a tutorial for a wired head wrap thats really cute too: https://thesaraproject.com/2014/09/18/diy-wired-head-wraps/
