Default Re: Kufi caps with ribbon

i have thought about buying both of these tuts - and probably will in the future. but for now, i do exactly what you stated in your initial post. i weave the ribbon thru out the hat and then stretch it out as far as it would need to go on a childs head. from that length of ribbon (and i never have measured it, i just pull the ribbon right off the roll. a little lazy!) and i sew about 1 1/2 inches of elastic to both ends of the ribbon, connecting them. i have both ends cover the outside of the elastic so that it cant be seen from the outside although this is generally where i put the bow too so nothing ever shows. i hope this helps.
