Default Re: Skinny headbands

Did you buy those headbands in a pack? did they come alone and you just added the flower. I would like to go purchase at least one to see what it looks like in person, I live near Downtown LA and you can find every and anything you need there so maybe i can go take a look but i would need a sample....TIA

By the way, are you still thinking of doing a GB on the ones that you found and you liked?
No I was talking about the JoAnn's discount-it was like close to 1am last night so I could have been out of my mind-lol. I wish Michael's had one!

We are in the process of checking on different color options and possible 1/8" size on the ones I liked, so I'll let you know as soon as I hear! I definitely like the stretch of those better than the braided elastic, so even if it's only in 1/4" I'll still order that.

That's what happened with my brown-I simmered it for 30 some minutes but there are still some tiny white specks showing through so it doesn't look as smooth. It would work, but still not what I had hoped-which I knew the polyester doesn't dye as well so that's probably why. I don't think it would be that noticeable to someone, but compared to the FOE and other elastics I have that have been dyed, I like the finish on those much better

I actually cut a small round piece of felt and glued the felt to the inside of the headband and then glued the flower on top.

I am so w/ u on just paying to have it dyed and ready to go. I have so many things that I have to make that I'd rather not have to add more to the list Would love to know what the final decision is w/ doing a GB/not for the headbands.

As soon as I hear back from her I'll get one running if there are other colors available. Even if that does only come in white though, it will dye much easier than the braided stuff but I'm not only waiting to see what other colors, but also if it can be done in 1/8". If not, I'd still rather have the 1/4" of this compared to the braided. Hopefully I'll hear back soon! I at least know there is light pink available

Yes, there was 8 in the pack (I think). I don't have the tag anymore but I think they were Scrunchi brand.

Do you have the brand or sku from the cute Michaels flowers? My Michaels didn't have them, either. I would like to look online.
