I have a special treat for you guys today! Were making braided headbands but the treat is the tutorial!! Im making theese for school and my friends!

Okay you will need;
Some time,
An old T-shirt(or other scraps)
safety pin

First we will lay out the shirt flat (the one in the picture has already been used twice(:

And cut it into three one inch strips
And bye bye shirt!! Turn the strips inside out and cut away ONE side of the stitching that was the side of the shirt.
Do that to all three strips, folding them right side back when your done. Now streeetch them all the way they can stretch. they will look like this when your done(:

That was kinda fun wasnt it??(: now line up the three strips and knot them all at the top. A really tight knot with about an inch left over on one side.

Then safety pin it somewhere and braid braid braid. Not to tight or else it wont stretch.  Make sure you end (by knotting it!) a little smaller than your head. To make sure this is right, wrap it around your head however your planning on wearing it. It streches!
Lay it flat as it would be if you were going to wear it, and use the little ends (not the long one you braided from!) and tie it to the other side. What your doing is joining the pieces. And then trim the little edges! 

Now here is the only semi hard part. Tie the three strings  to one side of the big knots. cut off all but one string. (ive yet to find something to do with what is left start tightly wrapping the string around all the knots, knotting it a final time around the end.

Putting what we just did to the back of your neck, enjoy your braided headband and make more! a great way to upcycle an old tshirt!! 

Have a lovely day ladies and stay couture!<3
