Gosh, I wish I had my headband list size. I just googled it and made a list.
I am new to FOE, but I take a tiny needle and stitch both the elastic and the little piece for the cover. I am kind of crazy about toxic type of glues around a babies head, but that is just my obsession and I sew well .. good luck.

I cut mine 20" then use bra strap slides to make then adjustable. That way they can be worn for preemie to adult. Just an idea!

Not right now but I can get one. They work great for all ages. I will run one to my photographer friend tomorrow and have her take a shot.

Hi! I really love that idea... What size slides do you use? any pics on how this looks? I didn't think they made slides the size of the FOE?

Where do you get your slides from? I had a terrible time tracking some down to make Adjustable DRR headbands. I finally found someone on ebay who had some that weren't listed and of course after all that, I still haven't made any headbands
