- Press the fabric tube with the seam centered.
- Fold each of the ends of the fabric tube back into itself, approximately 1/2 inch, and press.
- Insert the hair band into the fabric tube, bringing the end of the hair band to rest against the inside edge of the fabric tube.
- Using a needle and thread, stitch the end of the fabric tube closed, catching the hair band fabric in the stitches.
