Does the TUT require any sewing?

If you want to sew you can but you don't have to

The adjustable ribbon idea seems like a good one, Krista, do you sell the slider part? I thought I saw you said before that you do, but I don't see them on your zibbet. Or am I looking in the wrong place?

NM I found it on your etsy.

i have thought about buying both of these tuts - and probably will in the future. but for now, i do exactly what you stated in your initial post. i weave the ribbon thru out the hat and then stretch it out as far as it would need to go on a childs head. from that length of ribbon (and i never have measured it, i just pull the ribbon right off the roll. a little lazy!) and i sew about 1 1/2 inches of elastic to both ends of the ribbon, connecting them. i have both ends cover the outside of the elastic so that it cant be seen from the outside although this is generally where i put the bow too so nothing ever shows. i hope this helps.

I use the toggle method for my hats and they seriously fly off the shelf at my shows. I agree, it gets to be a pain to explain over and over again, but each time you explain it, it's like the lights come on and it's an automatic sale.

Sewing is my first passion so here's what comes to my mind--

hand stitch about a 1" piece of elastic to both sides of the ribbon, making it a continuous circle. Hide it behind the bow/flower. If you wanted to make it removable, put some velcro on one side of the elastic then another piece on the ribbon. voila. You can buy sew-in or iron-in elastic. They also make a sticky kind but I don't think it would work well for this type of thing.

I haven't actually done this but it seems like a good solution to me.

I think velcro sounds like the easiest solution!! I sell reborn dolls...and have some of the Kufi caps for them...I think I'll use the velcro on the next one I make!!

I use velcro on mine I sew in about 2 inches of it on the ribbon. I even sell a mix and match set with one hat and 2 bows and 2 ribbons. These fly off my table!!!
Im very interested in getting some of those toggles though, very interesting.
