Default Tutorial for foldover elastic headbands?

Does anyone have a tutorial on how to make the headbands from the foldover elastic? I'd like to make it interchangeable so that I can use different bows to go with dd's outfits I'm sewing for the summer.
Thanks, LB

I haven't got a tutorial but i can tell you here. Very very easy.

Depending on the size of the head i normally use 12" for a newborn.....15" for 3-12 months and 17" for up to 3. Cut your elastic and sew together right sides facing. Then cut a piece of ribbon and hot glue it on the inside at the seam. Fold it over the front and glue on the inside again which forms a slight loop. That makes it interchangeable. I hope that helps. Sorry i don't have photos!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now I can order some things to make them without worrying that I won't be able to do it! DD just doesn't have enought hair to keep the clippies in yet, and we're 2 years old. AHHHH! Maybe she'll have better luck with the headbands.
Thanks again! LB

I prefer sewing mine by hand.If you are using the machine, use the zigzag stitch!
I stitch mine diagonally and cover the stitch with 3/8 GG ribbon!
