Default Head bands from regular lace

Someone gave me a lot of different types of lace. This is plain lace not the stretchy kind but very pretty. She used it when making dresses for little girls.

That being said how or can I make head bands out of this. I don't own sewing machine. Is it possible.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I am totally guessing here but maybe you could cut the lace to your desired length. I would probably fold the ends one or two times about half an inch each time. In my mind this will make a thicker and more stable area to attach the elastic to and with needle and thread make a couple of stitches. Then I would sew some elastic to both ends. To cover up where the stitches and elastic are you could hot glue some pretty ribbon around it. Does any of that make sense? LOL! I hope it helped a little.

I agree with what mommygolightly said. YOu could also stretch your elastic out a little, stitch the lace on the elastic, and then when unstretched, it would be kinda ruffly, but when stretched on the head, would be pulled out more. Make sense? HTH

for the big girls this is how I do it.

Two Pony os, I used different colors so it would show up and I wouldnt put these colors with orange ribbon



Put one pony o thru the other



Loop one end of the pony o you put through inside the other


Pull tight so the two pony os are now in sort of a figure 8 and hooked together


Slide the end of the ribbon through one pony o (heat sealed end but I keep it on the roll so I can cut it to the length I need and not waste any)


Fold up a bit of the end of the ribbon and thread your needle through it as pictured


Now pull the thread tight, wrap it around a few times and sew through the middle, I then sew back to the other side a few time to make sure it is secured, then I might add a bit of glue on it to make sure it is secure



then cut tot he length you need and sew on the other side. Then I add some silicone on the inside so it stays put

For infants, I make a garter type one, I sew a casing for the elastic with satin or soft fabric for the back and then feed the elastic through the casing and sew it shut

These are also good for the big girls in the new boho style that is HOT right now

scroll down, instead of the ribbon, I use the lace on one side and the satin on the other
