Default Braided head band question

Does anyone use the UB 1/2" head bands? I have a boatload that I bought to use for braided head bands (not woven). I bought instructions, but the length that is given is way off (comes up too short). Would anyone have the correct length of ribbon to use for this particular brand head band?

I just braid it on the spool and cut it when I have the right length of braid.

Make sure you are braiding tightly enough. There should be give to your braid as well so that it will stretch to make it fit the headband. Which instructions did you use?

The mandTfarms should have the right measurements. It calls for 1" headbnads but I use 3/4" and it still works fine. She is a member here. tanyat, I think. I would contact her directly and ask for help!
