For a cute, warm winter headband, use the turtleneck part of a sweater, a wide, ribbed waistband, or a part of a ribbed sweater. Cut a strip out the width you want your headband to be (best to measure around your head to make sure it will fit snugly with a little stretch).
Cut a piece of fleece the same length, or a little shorter, and sew to the inside of the band.
Sew the ends right side together and turn inside out. I used part of a side-buttoning neck on the red sweater and used the buttons to attach instead of sewing. You could also sew on buttons and do a button hole if you’re feeling more adventurous!
Using the sleeve of a sweater, trace an outline about an inch bigger than your hand. Cut out the mitten shape and turn the fabric right sides together.
Sew along the outside, close to the edge, leaving the bottom of the sleeve open for your hand to go in. Zigzag the edges, turn right side out and you have yourself a proper set of mitts!
