Default How long do you cut ribbon for woven headbands?

How long do you cut your ribbons for woven headbands? I haven't perfected the lengths yet and would love to hear from others who have figured it out.

I imagine it depends on what size headband you are using. For 1" headbands, I cut my ribbon to 36" each. I always have probably 5 or 6 inches leftover of each strand. I could probably cut it a little short, but I'd rather have a little too much then run out right at the end. I wouldn't say that I have "perfected" it, but that's what I do.

I make mostly 3/4 inch headbands and I cut 30 inches.

For the 1/4, I think I cut 25 inches, but I can't remember if that's right.

It definitely depends on the size. I did my first one with the longer lengths and them measured how much was left. I do the smaller 1/2" & 3/4" headbands.
