Remember that the headband will stretch, so you might want to make it 1 to 2 inches shorter than your actual head circumference. Alternately, you could crochet the band in single crochet stitches to make it slightly less stretchy.
||Fasten off the band, leaving a long tail for sewing. With wrong sides facing, center the band over the bottom circular part of the headband and sew the short edge of the band to the circular piece.
Once the headband is sewn together, slip stitch around the entire outside edge of the headband. This will keep the band from stretching too much.
