Default Any Ideas

I have a customer who has a green "santa" dress for her dd. the ones that are velvet with the white marabou on the sleeves and on the bottom of the dress. she wants a headband that is all marabou. how would you do that?? would you make a woven headband and glue the length of it with marabou? or just glue the marabou to a blank plastic headband??? any help would be great!

If it were me, I like things finsihed, so I would weave a headband, white (or whatever color marabo you are using) then finish it off with the boa!! that will look SO adorable!

i agree it would look tacky if i used an unfinished headband. let me ask, how do you make a marabou puff?? is it just a circle of marabou?? because i was thinking of weaving a headband and putting a puff on the side.

My daughter has that exact dress too! I would love to see a pic of what you come up with. I haven't worked with marabou yet, but have been contemplating what to make to match her dress....

I just saw a marabou headband at HL in the christmas section with the antlers and stuff-looked like a ribbon-wrapped headband and then had the marabou boa glued on top. But I think this would look kind of funny peeking out around their ears KWIM? I think I would do a white ribbon-wrapped headband with the poof clip.

i do know what you mean about the around the ears, i call the customer and she def wants the marabou all around the headband. i think i am going to use my judgemnet and not glue it around the whole headband i will have to use my dd as a model!! i personally would prefer the puff idea!! thanks for all your help girls, i will post a picture when i am done!!
