Default Re: Using different materials for headbands?

The plastic canvas might be a good alternative for you as well, and really is fairly cheap.
I've tried the ones on here and they are great. It's not that it hurts her or they don't fit it's that if they aren't tight on her noggin she pulls it off. I like the floppy with elastic b/c she forgets they are in her hair and leaves them in

I'll have to check out the interfacing stuff. Do you use a template for the shape or do you cut each piece individually? That's what i find annoying about it!
