The pattern is cut on the fold. At the fold it measures 2 1/2 inches wide and at the narrow end it measures 1 1/4 inches and is 6 inches long. The elastic recommended and that I used is foldover elastic which was left unfolded. You will cut 2 pieces of fabric on the fold and a piece of elastic 10 inches long. Where I differed from the tutorial is that I interfaced one of the pieces of fabric. Next time I will interface both pieces.
After interfacing I sewed one long side with the fabric placed right sides together.
Press that seam.
Then press up about 1/4 inch to the wrong side on both short ends.
Then with right sides together sew the other long side. Use a large safety pin or your favorite tool for turning and turn.
Using my seger tweezers I push the end of elastic inti the opening about 1\2 inch. Stitch across the end 2-3 times to secure. Keeping the elastic straight insert the elastic the same way from the other end.
Top stitch the long sides 1/4 inch from the edge.
I think the headband may have been EK's favorite part of the outfit.
