Default help with headbands

I have the woven headband instructions and am following them closely. But, when I make the daimond shape design, the colors always "spill" over. I have attached pics so you can see. it's the diamond from the inside of the headband coming over to the diamond from the front side.

anyone have any tips on how i can fix this problem?

thanks,
jenn


on this first one, you can see it if you look to the right- on the side of the band

this one, it is at the very front, top of diamond

I had that same problem last night when I was working on mine. I found that if I pulled up on the ribbon it helped to make sure the ribbon over it was covering it... Makes a tighter weave. Does that make sense?

I have tried pulling it tighter, and also not pulling it so tight. I have also tried pulling it up, overlapping a little, etc... I have no clue what makes it work best!! I will try it again tonight though!

thanks

Imagine only having the black ribbons - it is to look like a wrapped headband with no gaps - if you look at yours if you took away the other color there would be gaps - you just need to bunt up against the previous. Don't overlap.

Does that make sense?
This made me literally say "aaahhhhhh". I have had the same issue. Thanks!

P.S. I like your instructions, they are very easy to follow.
