Need an armband when you’re running or walking? Try making one from a headband. Pretty simple and inexpensive. Just follow a couple of steps below.
- Needle and Thread or Sewing Machine
Measure the armband around your arm. Make sure and measure it tightly, but not extremely tight.
Pin. Sew down on machine or use a needle and thread.
Finish edges on the machine to stop material from raveling. This part is optional.
Top stitch to securely how down seam edge.
Using chalk, this shows the distance that I want to make two seams that will be the location of pocket for holding items when running. (Notice picture on right.)
Cut a slit halfway down the pocket area. Insert items such as a key, tissue or chapstick to keep handy when exercising. If you feel that the pocket opening may stretch over time, then secure the opening by using a needle to make knots on both ends of pocket opening. There you have it!
