Default Re: question about making the headbands

Is your headband tapered at the ends? If it is, then you will get ribbon not wanting to lay flat once you reach the halfway point. I'm not sure how to fix it. I've only made 3 headbands so far. I noticed I had that problem with the headband that had tapered ends. The headbands that were the same width along the whole thing, didn't do that. Maybe someone else has some helpful tips for this. I'm wondering about it too.

And to answer your question, I only use glue on the ends of the diamondback weave. When I used the braid and also when I just ribbon wrapped, I used glue along the whole headband.
