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)
Thanks Vanitha for the great Tut! I bought a bunch of FOE on ebay and this looks much easier than sewing. Once I saw what you charge for the headbands I regretted buying the FOE though! I book marked you and will be buying skinny headbands from you soon.

I do the same..w/a lighter to seal..I also sew once sealed to make sure it's really re-enforced..my DD loves to tug at ther hair pretties.

FOE headbands are the cutest..they are by far my favorite over any other kind.

I use my wood burner to seal the ends and then sew it together.

How do you do this? I have tried over and over again, alls I can get it to do, is just burn! lol
Do you fold one side to the other, do you have two ends together, then smash it or do you just cut with your wood burner tool and it just melts together? Man that elastic burning sure stinks!
