Default HELP PLEASE w/ woven headbands

I dont know what I am doing wrong but when I make the headbands it is only woven on the top and the underside has a looped around affect to it. Did I make sense? I will try to take a pic to show you what I mean. Any advice?

LOL when I made mine at first my pattern on the front was diamond and striped on the back... I'll attatch a picture to see if we're on the same page
I fixed it by going in between both strands on both sides. I know that makes no sense..
Okay like when I would do the right side I would take my middle strand in between the top strand and bottom and when I did the left strand I was going above the top strand INSTEAD of under the top strand and above the bottom strand.
Hope that makes some kind of sese, LOL. (Clear as mud, I know)

I did not even realize this was my first post. I have been on this forum a zillion times LOL!

I will introduce myself here then go to the intro board.

My name is Tabitha, I am married to DH Kenny for 12 yrs (maybe 13, cant remember right now, lol) We have 3 girls and 1 boy. Alanna is 8, Harlie is 6, Layla is 1 and Alex is our angel.

I have been making bows for my girls for about a year now but just recently figured out the RIGHT way to do it LOL. I have opened a website (but not even close to being ready) where I will sell bows, clips, holders, clothing for kids and fun stuff for moms.

I look forward to getting to know everyone!

Welcome to the group and hope you figure out the headbands- the same thing happened to me the first time! I just wasn't getting the weave right!

Oh, I'm so glad to see this! My ribbons and headbands just came in the mail today from RABOM and I'm hoping to give this a try tomorrow. Thanks for the visual Kimberlea!

I just love making these The key is practice... I wrapped and unwrapped my first one about 29 times before I was happy and I haven't looked back since
