Default ? about woven headbands

Can you use 5/8" ribbon? It just talks about 3/8" in my instructions and I don't know since I've only made 1. Just haven't had the time to make any more to get them online yet although my huge box of headbands are taking up my counter top!

My husband makes my woven headbands when I am swamped. I have alot more neat ribbon in 5/8- so we will use a mixuture sometimes too. Like the 5/8 as the center and a solid 3/8 as the sides. (I assemble the headbands, he weaves them)

One great thing about the bow world- EXPERIMENT! If it doesn't work- well then you know. It's amazing the things that do work and look cool.

LOL it takes me an hour to make one just from the instructions-I can't imagine how long it would take me to experiment with it-lol.

Ok so I have Lorraine's instructions so if I follow those, would I use the 5/8" for all 4 strands or just one possibly? And do I need to use more or less in length than what was stated for the 3/8"?

What size headbands do you guys use? I use 3/4 inch and it didn't work very well for me. Do I just need thicker ones?

I think I still cut my ribbon at the same length for the 5/8. Oh! I have a pic somewhere.. let me see for an example of the 5/8 finished.

I am pretty sure this is 5/8. (wanna know what else? It's wired ribbon!.. everyone loves it. I have sold more like this at the craft shows then online) Etsy :: BowsByAmber :: Purple, White, and Blue Striped Woven Headband

Awesome! The ribbon my customer wants to use is different colors but patterned similar to that. So did you do it exactly the same then instead it's 5/8" rather than 3/8"?

My headbands are 1/2" and 1"

I use 1/2 inch headbands. I have the 1 inch too- but for some reason they are harder for me to weave.

Yes- I did it exactly the same. Remember with the 1 inch.. the ribbon is cut longer then with a 1/2 headband. But everything else is the same.
