Default FOE headband????

I just make bows and woven headbands, but I keep seeing FOE headbands on here. I know it's probably a dumb question, but what exactly are they???

They are made with Fold Over Elastic. You sew two ends of the elastic together. You can make them interchangeable, add bows, flowers, clippies...

I think you put a little strip of ribbon across the headband and you can slip a clip through there so that you can change them. I don't know how to describe the ribbon loop I've seen on them so maybe someone can post a picture for you. Now my question: When you try to buy the elastic for the headband what do you ask for , because the people at hobby lobby have no idea what I'm talking about and look at me like I have two heads. Also , does the elastic come in colors? Thank you.

I don't know how to post pictures. There's a tut on here for the interchangeable ones. It glues the ribbon. I sew mine. I use 3/8 ribbon stitch it on the underside at the edge. Wrap it around the headband fold the edge under and stitch.
Honestly, for my girls, I like to stitch the flowers directly to the headband. I haven't used them with bows. I have used the hydrangeas and the fabric flowers.
I have had the problem with them slipping off. I am going to get the silicone that everyone has been saying to use to see if it helps.
My oldest daughter is 8 and my headbands are 19 inches. They fit my 4 yr old too.
Hope this helps. I'm not always the greatest at explaining things.
