Tips on using different types of Knit Fabrics:
Jersey Knit is a stretchier type of knit fabric but tends to roll when the edges are cut, making it more difficult to sew. To remedy this it is helpful to spray the fabric with starch and iron before cutting.
Interlock Knit is a more stable knit and while it doesn't stretch as much it tends to be more stable when sewing, does not roll when cut and does not require starching and ironing before cutting the fabric.

Here are some of the pretty little headbands I made for Christmas gifts using the Headband Pattern. Adorbs!
The fabric I used above is organic knit from Spoonflower. I absolutely love Spoonflower, the trendiness, and a variety of designs crazy. I mean, they are so spot-on, on what is new and cool. If you don't know about Spoonflower yet, it is a print on demand company where you can make your own designs or use other designers.
There are lots of fabric types to choose from, and they even print wrapping paper! Watch out Christmas! A few details about the type of knit fabric. It is Organic Cotton Interlock, and comes printed 56". It is a little stiff when you first get it from the printing, but once washed softens right up.

If you haven't sewn with knits before I recommend using a walking foot and some stretch thread in the bottom. Add a stretch stitch and easy as pie! You can check out the tribal knot headband and the strawberry knot headband I made last year to go with Ava's outfits.
