Default is this right? woven headband

I found some instructions for a weaving pattern that I thought would work on headbands. Is this looking like the ones that you pay for? I was going to buy some, but if I've got the right idea I'll save the money

I borrowed one of dd's headbands just for practice, she only has these skinny ones, I'm thinking it'll look better with a wider band and 3/8" ribbon. I tried the 3/8" on this band but it just wasn't right. So I got the only two skinny ribbons I had to try it.

I know I would need to practice and get the ribbons tighter, but it was my first attempt.

so is this right?

Wow. You're VERY good at figuring stuff out. It took me a while even with the instructions. It looks like you are usinega half inch headband and those look nice too with the 3/8 inch ribbon.

I used this as my guide. If you need help, I could write up some instructions with pictures on how I adapted it to a headband, maybe, I need to get my hands on some headbands. But you should be able to figure it out from that website.

just as an FYI: I found that site too and wasn't able to figure it out. I ended up buying the instructions and think that they were well worth it. They are the only instructions I have ever bought.

I only mention this so people don't feel bad if they can't figue it out from that site. Punkynmunky: I think your talent at figuring stuff out surpasses the average crafter

LOL! I guess I never think of myself as talented Thank you!

seriously though, the instructions that you buy are probably a lot more understandable, and the people who made them put a lot of work into them I'm sure. They are probably worth every penny spent!

I think I can do the weave part, but I'm confused on how to start at the end of the headband?
