Default Kufi caps with ribbon

Ok, so I've been embellishing some of my kufi hats with ribbon, and the way I deal with the ribbon not being stretchy and needing adjusted is I have been using a toggle bean and letting the customer know it adjusts that way. I just put a flower or bow on top of where you see the mini toggle. This works, but is so annoying trying to explain to customers how the ribbon works. So much so that I don't think I'm going to do it anymore even though I sold practically everyone I had made for my last show. Is there an easier way to embellish the hat with ribbon. I've heard of ladies tying the ribbon after it's measured on the head, that sounds like the same kind of hassle though. I was wondering if maybe there was an easy way to measure how much ribbon would be enough on that size of head, or if there is a way to possibly sew the ribbon in there with a little bit of elastic attached to the ends.... I don't know. How do you all do it?

I don't actually sell mine with ribbon but when I do one for my girls with ribbon I use velcroe.

I've used a toggle or just tied the ribbon but I agree it's a pain.

I am going to use the same hardware that I use for adjustable FOE headbands and add a bra closure to it so that it can still be removed from the hat if they want to embellish it with something that doesn't go with the ribbon.

Keep in mind I haven't done this yet, it's just an idea. I bought the FOE headband tut and am going to use the same basic principal just add the closures to it. I think there is actually a tut for what I want to do somewhere, but I haven't had time to look it up yet.

If I ever get the chance to do it I'll let you know how it goes.

That is exactly what my tutorial is, I am not hiding anything. If you look in the parts listing I have up there is a picture of the band. The cost is more for the parts than the tutorial itself, but I offer it because I know not everyone can just look a picture and figure it out!
