Default Skinny headbands

I am in L-o-v-e with these headbands!
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php...ng_id=39727117
But how would I attach a flower to such a skinny headband? If I sew it how would I make the back look nice? And last question, where would I find a headband small enough for an infant?
I wanna make these so bad!! My 4year old needs some

I would think you could just glue it. I would use e6000 though to make sure it stayed

I make some similar. I make mine with elastic that is very very very soft.

I sew mine with tiny stitches, if you use the same color thread it does not look bad.

If you buy your headbands I would say cut them to fit the baby sizes and sew the flower over the ends. ( I put my flower over the ends as well.

It is just plain elastic. Check your local craft stores

YES Lula I would LOVE to know how you make them. I would be interested in this group buy too. I've never seent ath type of uber skinny elastic at JA's tho. I never looked at Michael's. Hmmm anyone know where we could find it online for a good price?

here is a place I know of(checkers distributors) that has a lot of different sized elastic but it only comes in the basic elastic colors. Not sure if you have to dye the elastic or if they actually make different colored elastic. http://www.checkerdist.com/products/...stic&relatedto=
I came across this site through one of my yahoo fabric groups, they do group buys through them a lot. So I just thought I'd put that out there. They also get about 40-45% off the original prices when doing a wholesale group buy.

~*Oh and on a side note they sell that e6000 glue in 3.7 oz tubes at a dozzen each for $6.99. Not sure if its the same stuff but here is the link. http://www.checkerdist.com/products/E6000
