Default Does anyone sew their own crochet headbands?

I saw some really cute black and red crochet headband material at HL. It came on a roll. I am having trouble sewing it with a sewing machine. It just keeps eating it! How do I sew it to b secure without having this problem?

You will need to use a stabilizer both on top and bottom of the crochet material to help it feed through with out jamming. You could use either a wash away or tear away stabilizer. The wash away might work better with a strechy material.

Thank you so much! I was beginning to head in that direction but wasn't sure which stabilizer would work best. Thanks!

Amen to that!!!!! After I get rid of what I have bought on a roll I will probably never buy any that are not premade again! It's horrible.

I bought it once and haven't touched it since! haha! I just use it as a headband for myself for around the house because it made me so mad! Oh well. I got it when it was 50% off at HL....

I was just thinking of trying some to make larger tutus, so I'm glad I saw this post.
Does anyone use it for that purpose, or what else works good if you want the top with the tutu?
