Default Using different materials for headbands?

Just wondering if anyone has tried using different material for the actual headband? My toddler doesn't like the conventional headbands and pulls them off right away.

I've tried using plastic - like those plastic mat cutting boards (pain in the butt to cut into headband shape. I'm trying Foam sheets right now. I like a more floppy headband with elastic connecting it.

What about the plastic sheeting that the older ladies use to cross stitch? It would be stronger than craft foam.

That's a really good idea. I will have to give that a try and see!

I do not know what size headbands you are making her, but have you tried the 3/8 or 1/2 in headbands on her? They seem to fit the little heads a whole lot better than the 1 in ones do. My youngest granddaughter is almost 6 but very small in stature, and the 1/2 in ones do not seem to hurt her like the 1 in ones do, nor do they slip off. The plastic canvas might be a good alternative for you as well, and really is fairly cheap.

similar to the foam I used the thicker crafting interfacing found in the fabric section and it worked pretty well as I have one that complains about headbands as well.

I've tried the ones on here and they are great. It's not that it hurts her or they don't fit it's that if they aren't tight on her noggin she pulls it off. I like the floppy with elastic b/c she forgets they are in her hair and leaves them in

I'll have to check out the interfacing stuff. Do you use a template for the shape or do you cut each piece individually? That's what i find annoying about it!

Your headband and the model are adorable.

I do this...it is sized for an infant size as my daughter is only 6 months, but can be easily adapted.

Wow that looks awesome! I may have to give the elastic bands a try again. I tried it once but didn't like the way it turned out. I LOVE the one you did and that little girl is so adorable!
