Default Woven Headband Questions

For those of you who make the woven headbands what size ribbon works best with which headbands?

How long should my ribbon be for the different widths of ribbon?

I bought a 1/2" headband and 1/4" ribbon... I thought I cut enough ribbon... I cut 30" of each color assuming that would give me some extra to play with at the end. Well, as you can see, I'm 3/4ths of the way finished and out of ribbon!

Would it be better to use 3/8" ribbon on the 1/2" hb?

I use 3/8 inch on both 1/2" and 1 " headbands. I do love how that looks with the 1/4. Just cut it longer.

I bought LCB's instructions which have all that information in it.

Yes, I have her instructions too, but I believe the length of ribbon she says to use for the 1/2" hb is for the 3/8" ribbon...
