Default I feel so stupid; braided headband

I just cant get the braided headband. i think its call the military braid. i got the weave down but mine just pile on top of each other instead of making a line. Hope that makes sense

I've tried 5 different tuts including the ones on here. I've read everybodys threads about it as well. Nothing. Can someone tell me in detail how to start the braid and walk me thru it for the first 3 or so weaves. I'm stuck.

Thanks so much

Don't feel bad...I can't make that one or the woven headband no matter how hard I try or what instructions I follow. Maybe it's one of those hidden talents some people have?

Tanya's are great!!! Full of pics so it makes it super easy to understand. I can't seem to get the woven headbands but I am addicted to braiding now!

Yep they were awesome. I dont think ive ever been so satisfied with instructions before. It was perfect the first try. Though i did run out of ribbon but i can adjust.

do you have to use the plastic headbands that are the same size all the way around, someone donated a bunch of the bands that are much wider at the top...I wanted to make some for our women's shelter fund raiser, but if they are hard to do I hate to waste what limited funds we have on instructions that are hard to follow
