Default 1/8" Elastic Headband Tutorial

I just purchased some 1/8" elastic and now I need to know how to make the headbands. Ok, maybe I have overlooked the tutorial but I've searched and can't seem to find one. Do you HG know if there's one out there? What size flowers and where can I buy them? Oh, how much do you sell them for? TIA!

What do you need help with, they are pretty simple. You just glue the ends together overlapping, and you flower and glue a felt pad to the underside.

Thanks, that sounds easy enough! What measurements do you use? Do you use a really HOT hot glue?

I use hot glue, 13.5 inches so I can overlap a half a inch. That is for 0-3 months.

Is there like a chart or something to go buy as far as measuring elastic? You said 13.5" for 0-3 mos. How many inches do you add for older?

I have hot glued the ends together as well as handsewn a couple of stitches with the two ends overlapped Either way holds very well! I use a piece of wool felt on the back of the headband/flower.
I don't use (or trust) E6000! I use hot glue.
Only a few Michael's stores carry the tiny flowers. I have to drive an hour away to pick mine up.....when I have 2 near by but they don't carry them
This week they are buy one get one free!
