  1. 1

    Wash your old sweatbands. Residue-covered or dirty sweatbands may be discoloured, which can affect your customisation.

  2. 2

    Add lettering or design with fabric markers to match your style. Try using school colours, team colours and logos, or your own sports number.

  3. 3

    Cut your own sweatband out of a pair of tube socks. Laying the sock flat, cut straight across the top part of the sock from left to right, making a loop to the thickness of your preference. Picking socks with designs or colour is another way you can customise this look. If the socks are wide, consider using this sweatband for your head.

  4. 4

    Make light sweatbands from old T-shirts. Cut an oblong rectangle, or strip, of your T-shirt. Cut in strategic locations to allow logos or words to show. Wrap the fabric around your wrist or head and tie the ends.

  5. 5

    Create a custom sweatband online. Visit a website that allows custom orders, such as, and begin personalising your sweatband. Order one for yourself or your entire sports team, or friends.
