I use a cigar lighter to heat seal and then hot glue. More than 10 headbands, i use candle.

I dont use the wood burner especially for the FOE. Oh the smoke fumes and the smell are so strong, i CANNOT take it.

This is how i make mine(sold over 1000 headbands, no complaints so far)

How long does everyone make their headbands?

I guess if I cant find them cheaply made that I can get off my toosh and make them!

Can some one link me to the directions they keep referring to them - for some reason I seem to be challenged in navigating the forums and I cant find them!!

Thanks for posting that tut, Vanitha. I just purchased some FOE and I'm dreading the thought of sewing each and everyone of them. Thanks!

I hot glue. I make up a bunch of headbands and then bring them w/ extra w/ me to my boutique and then just make them up w/ the bows or just loops on them when a customer wants them. Takes me all of 2 minutes. I've never had a problem with the hot glue, either. I don't use ribbon for the loop though, I use FOE.
