Default Woven Headband Instructions??

Which instructions do you recommend. I tried the ones at hairparts can couldn't get it. I can make braided ones all day but the woven ones just have gotten the better of me. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

there's a free one at hair-hardware.com. I think it's pretty good and it explains where to place the ribbon for diff. color patterns well. I use diff. instructions for finishing the ends from this site.

It took me awhile to really get it too. What helped me was a tutorial on youtube.

There's 2 parts to it

I did it!! I used the You tube tut and I finally got it. I cut the ribbon for this back before easter and finally got around to it!! Not the best, but now I will just have to practice!!! I feel a new addiction coming on!

Woo hoo! I love the colors you used. I have made 4 now and still have a hard time getting them tight. I love making them though.

I have 3 boys so I have to have a girly outlet somewhere!

make sure you push the weave to the ribbon right before it so its touching before doing the next one. and, to keep it tight, you can use alligator clips as you go.

i love these!!!

I have a son, no daughter so it is a great girly outlet even though I am not girly!!

I switched to 3/4" headbands too which helps with the gaps I got earlier and practice is helping too. I have ribbon cut for 5 more to do when son gets up from his nap. Can we say ADDICT??

I bought 1 inch ones for the first ones I did. I just bought more 1 inch ones from the same place and they were different. Weird.

I use the alligator clips to keep it tight as I go, but I still have a little trouble keeping it tight. I thought about using double sided tape like terrifically tacky tape?

I'm definitely going to be making a lot of these! They are so cool!
