Default Re: Stupid question

Usually you don't need to use that much of the stretch factor for an elastic material. It would be like stretching plain elastic to it's limit and using that size as a headband - you'd cut off your brain circulation from the elastic trying to unstretch back to it's regular size. Besides if you don't leave any extra stretch, it'll be really hard to get on and off.

When I make elastic lace headbands, I cut the length to the exact head measurement and then overlap by 1/2" which will create just enough stretch on the head to hold it on, still leave plenty of room to grow, and not make an indention mark on their little noggin.
Have a great day! ~ Tonya
