Default DRR Toggle headband question

Ok, I'll try this again. I started making some DRR headbands with 1.5 DRR and I have the mini toggles. I think the mini's are too small. Would the regular toggles work or am I using too large of a ribbon? ]

If anyone can help me with this I'd appreciate it. I have a show this weekend I am preparing for and if I need to order more toggles I will (if I can get them in time) but don't really want to go to the expense if they won't work either. I am spending WAY more than I thought I would in preparation for this show!

yeah, and my toggles are white. I probably should have another color but what can I do at this point?

I use the regular size toggle with 7/8 drr.

Might be too late treply since your show is this weekend, but I'm actually making toggle headbands right now with 1.5." The bigger ones will fit that size ribbon.

Nope! Not too late! I just got my new toggles in the mail an hour ago and am working on more now!
How do you get them in there? I am having a hard time and I am so bummed! Maybe the ribbon on top is too thick? It seems a little thicker than regular grosgrain.

You have to cut it at an angle, then make it into a little point. Once you get that through, you can pull the rest through though I've noticed that some ribbon works better than others; if your ribbon is not that great it may fray a bit, esp. on the edge (which you can just recut & seal again). It's worth it though because I love the wider headbands. HTH.

Yeah, I've tried it a million ways. Once I get it through it's too tight a squeeze for adjusting the headband. I love the wider ones too but I am really at a loss. And I found this out after I made a bunch. I did make some plain ones with just the DRR and no grosgrain on top. They are pretty cute too.
Thanks!

I made the 1.5 inch drr with grosgrain on the top, and though it was a little tight, the regular toggles did just fine. I was actually surprised that the black toggles look nice. I originally bought the clear mini's only to find out they were too small too!

Well, shoot, I don't know why mine are too tight. You really can't slide them at all.
