Hey fashionistas! Summer is right around the corner and what better time to make a super chic retro inspired DIY Turban, and with Aleene’s Fabric Fusion there’s NO SEWING involved! So grab your scarf and get ready to say “buh bye” to bad hair days!
• Scarf (preferably twill satin - it’s slightly thicker)
• Hair rubber band
• Measuring tape
As you work with Aleene’s Fabric Fusion you’ll see just how amazing it is. I love being able to create cute projects like this without having to drag out my sewing machine. And I love how well it holds up too, you may never sew another seam again!
Layout your scarf and decide where you want to cut your strips.
step 2Measure and cut 2 strips 4.5 inches wide by the length of your scarf (roughly 28 inches, but you will be cutting off some of this later as you fit it to your head measurement).
Take one of your strips and fold it in half with the right (pretty) sides together.
Measure 2 inches from the fold and pin.
Using your Aleene’s Fabric Fusion put a line of glue all the way down each side of your folded scarf, gluing your two sides together.
When your glue is dry enough to hold, carefully turn it right side out. Do this slowly just in case your glue isn’t completely dry, you don’t want your seams to open.
step 5Take your other scarf strip and put it through the hole at the top of the first scarf strip.
Smooth out this second scarf strip and glue one side with your Aleene’s Fabric Fusion.
Because it’s harder to keep this side flat I recommend using pins to help hold your seam in place.
When your first side is dry, carefully fold the other side and glue it, use pins to hold it in place if necessary.
One of the best things about using Aleene's Fabric Fusion for this project is that the seams you create with it are a little stiff and it works perfectly to help keep your turban sides wider and flatter when you wear it.
Measure your turban around your head, keep in mind that you don’t want it too tight or too loose.
Add glue to the ends.
Then fold your ends around your rubber band and glue.
