About the designer

When I was 12 and my oldest sister 16, she had the unbelievable patience to teach me how to lay out a pattern. She explained all the symbols, terms, sewing order etc. Had it not been for her ...

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is an excellent project for those new to sewing! Basic straight stitching, simple construction. The pattern has photos for each step as well as a written description. Email support provided too should you have any questions.
  • This is a one size fits most pattern and easily lengthened or shortened if the head size is outsized or too small. I have found that this pattern fits elementary grade through adults.
  • There are only two pieces and one hair elastic used to make this very functional and fun accessory!

Pattern Description:

ALL PROCEEDS GO TO BUYING SUPPLIES TO MAKE QUILTS TO DONATE TO PROJECT LINUS! Project Linus is a national program to provide very sick children in hospitals with their own special blankets that they get to keep.

I was looking for a way to use up scraps of polar fleece from other projects and developed this reversible headband. As a result I was inspired to make almost 200 of these to donate to an annual church bazaar for them to sell to raise money as well as donate a copious amount to a local annual giveaway of coats, hats and mittens to children in need.

The headband incorporates a hair elastic making it fit a wide variety of head sizes comfortably!

The possibilities are endless since there are so many wonderful prints and matching solids available in polar fleece! From character prints to Mossy Oak for the hunters in your life, you'll find you want to make everyone a headband. Let's not even talk about all the great college and national sports team prints out there too! Something for everyone! It's hard to make just one, they are so quick, easy and fun to make.

They make wonderful gifts for people of all ages as they are lightweight, durable, long lasting and easy wash and dry! And they're small enough for people to stuff in a coat pocket and keep it handy.

I would love to see the finished ones you make!

WARNING: These are addictive to make because it's inexpensive and fun!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • One size fits most!


  • Pattern making paper or nonwoven interfacing to make the pattern piece.
  • Matching thread.
  • Rotary cutter or a sharp pair of scissors.
  • 1/8th yard of two different polar fleece fabrics. They can be one print and a coordinating solid or two different solids. That amount of material will make SIX complete headbands since polar fleece is 60" wide!
  • Hair elastic that will match your fabric color.
