Now you are going to create the “twist”. Fold the left and right sides of the headband in towards the middle.
Fold each end into a “c” shape. The “c” shapes should be facing each other.
Bring the ends together by interlocking the “c” shapes. Sew the ends together with a tapestry needle.
Weave in your ends and turn the headband right side out.
