I would love to know if sewing 2 together works since I can't find the color I need in 5.5 inch. I wonder how the seam would feel/look?

If you notice the headbands seem to be heat sealed in the seam so that is my plan, I am going to attempt today... will post how it turns out. Along with a picture of the finished one.

I can't wait to see it, and hear how the heat sealing works.

Ok so you dont need to heat seal it. I cut two and stitched them together. I did it by hand because I was at a show and did not have a machine with me but I think it would be way better to use a machine. I did a whip stitch and went around each seam twice. I pulled and pulled to see if it would come apart and it would not. I will have to play with it a little to get the sizes just right but the two together looks to be about a girls 5/6. Unfortunately I dont have pictures because someone bought both of the ones I made today WOO HOO! I have some orange tulle so I am going to do black and orange and see how it looks. My next show is in 2 weeks so we will get pictures of this one before it sells!

Mrs.P, do you think the crochet headband offers enough coverage?? So that they aren't revealing?? Or, would the girls wear something under them??

A lot of people use the 1.5" headband but I dont like the way it looks because there are so many holes. When I use the 5.5" or 6" headband and fold it in half there are far fewer holes and it looks a lot better. This also allows for more tulle to be tied on making the skirt fuller. I dont think an undershirt is necessary when I fold it. HTH

I get my 5" hb's from a lady on ebay, she has orange. Just search Crochet Ballerina Headbands... I think her store name is Breena's.
