I wear FOE headbands a lot. I love them. They don't hurt my head. I cut mine 17 inches. I can never get it to heat seal together.
I use my lighter to it along the ends slowly and then squeeze them together (yes, it's hot!)...then use your lighter again and really melt the ends, using caution not to set it on fire. Once you have a nice melted line, you can squeeze it again (very, very hot) or use the butt-end of your lighter to smoosh it. Hope that helps! I've jsut started making these and haven't had any of them come apart yet. My daughter's been "wearing" them for a couple of days and we haven't had any problems with separation.

Another crafty stay at home
