Is your standard size crochet headband not long enough?
We have a quick and easy way to solve that problem.
How to lengthen a crochet headband
You will need:-
- 2 x 1.5″ crochet headbands
- a overlocker machine ( you can hand sew if you wish)
- lighter is optional
Take your two 1.5″ crochet headbands this can also be done with 6″ crochet tops or any other size you might have. Turn them inside out and cut along the seam.
You now have 2 lengths of crochet material
Lay the ends on top of each other. Right sides together. I pinned on end but did not worry about it when I did the other end.
Lift the foot of your overlocker and place the crochet material under just before the blade and then overlock. If you don’t have an overlocker you could just and stitch together. Hand sewing will take a lot longer.
Repeat the other end.
Here is your finished headband ready to add nylon tulle to create stunning tutu’s.
