Default HOw do you seal thin elasric headbands

I bought 10 yards of 1/8 inch round elastic to make headbands, and the person I bought it from said that she used the wood burner to seal her ends together, but it is just not working for me..What am I doing wrong??
ANd advise or pictures would be appriciated...I am really wanting to work on these today!

I want to know too! I wanted to buy some, but I don't want to have to sew them!
ONE other question I have too, if anyone knows...
Say you melt them together, then what? Is is crispy, do you cover it with something soft, like we all do with the foe?

I would hate to buy some, have it scratchy or crispy and then just glue a flower on it and it hurts a little one's head!

SO help anyone!

The woodburner didnt work for me either - which was frustrating! I used hot glue to secure it - added the flower I wanted to it - then put a small piece of felt behind it so that the glue doesnt touch the head. I have only finished one - but both my daughter and I have worn it without problems.

I sewed the ones I've made. I usually am all for the lighter method on the FOE, but these are so small, sewing them takes no time at all.

What do you do once you sew it, do you put something around the seam, OR do you just glue the flower right on it to hide it?
TIA!!!

It would seem to me that sewing would be so much faster.

I have just glued the flower on and backed it with a small circle of felt on the other side. HTH!

I tried sewing one last night and it failed miserably. It is SO thin - and round - how do you sew it? Just one stitch through each side and pull together? Multiple stitches through each side? Try to get through both pieces at the same time? I got pricked so many times - only to have it not hold up anyhow. If you cant tell, I am not an experienced sewer - but I do just fine on all my bows, I just couldnt get this one!
