I love to sew–in spurts. I might not sew for months, and then the mood hits. That’s what happened yesterday. I woke up feeling that I had to sew. Specifically, I wanted to sew a new scarf and a lululemon headband knock-off. I already own a few lululemon headbands, but rather than ordering a new one to freshen up my collection or waiting until the next time I happened to stroll by a lululemon store, I figured I’d just dust off my sewing machine and whip up a knock-off. Though I love lululemon headbands, this DIY headband authentically made by yours truly totally takes the cake.
I found fabric at a local fabric store in the clearance section. It’s a stretchy swimsuit-spandex fabric with a fun design. I already had 3/4″ elastic kicking around at home. I estimate the total cost of this DIY headband knock-off to be less than $1. The real thing with those snazzy silver logo buttons on the sides sell for $18. Total savings: $17. Estimated project time: Less than 30 minutes. Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy!
A couple of years later… here is a tutorial:
This is an easy headband to make to bring along on your travels. Perfect for casual wear, yoga, running, to keep your bangs out of your eyes. When you make your own you can custom fit the size and fabric selection.
I love to buy a Lululemon headband when I find a store during my travels. My kids love them, too. However, they aren’t always excited about the color options or sizing, so that’s where making your own comes into play!
Happy Sewing! Happy Adventures!
