You can quickly change your look by simply putting on a hat, but to make that hat match what you are wearing, coordinate the band with your other accessories. Like a belt, handbag and shoes, your hat band should ideally match. By having these pieces coordinated, you can have a complete look, from head to toe.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Hat
  • 3 " wide strip of fabric, long enough to wrap around your hat brim with 2 " overlap
  • Elastic to wrap around hat brim
  • Needle
  • Thread

  1. 1

    Fold the two long sides of the strip of fabric to meet with the pattern on the inside. Sew these sides together. You should have a long tube with the exterior of your hatband on the inside.

  2. 2

    Turn the tube right side out. You will now see the exterior of the fabric.

  3. 3

    Put the elastic through the tube. Scrunch up the fabric until you can see the two ends of the elastic. Sew these together.

  4. 4

    Stitch together the ends of the fabric. And you will have a large, expandable hat band to add to your hat.
