Default Braided headbands ?

I love making the headbands. But I have a ???
If I'm using ribbon that is printed on one side is it possible to have that side up all the time. Hope that makes sense.

Tanyat, Are the baby bowbands the kind that have elastic inside them?

I printed them off the hobby lobby website.
Am I allowed to post a link??
You can go to their web site and search projects for "Ribbon Slip Knot Braid" and it will come up.
Very easy directions!

You can find several free instruction links in thread below.

I use printed ribbon (swiss dot). as you can see, I can't make them all printed side up.

Tanya told me her instruction shows how to use 4 different color ribbon to braid. I think it'll solve this problem. I didn't get a chance to learn it yet.

I didn't buy the instructions (I haven't seen them at all), but I played around with the ribbons and I'd put two lengths of the SAME patterned ribbon wrong sides together and then begin the braiding process. It will take more ribbon but will give you the outcome you want.

The most ribbon I've used at once is 4 separate strands.

Either try that or try looping the opposite direction alternately (loop "in" and then loop "out.")

I hope that makes sense and works for you.
