Default foe question

Hi Ladies. For those of you that make foe headbands, can you please tell me if you glue them or sew? And the reason if possible.

I sew them like 3 times back and forward. I know a lot of people here glue them. Although it takes longer, I prefer to sew them. I like to make sure that is not going to fall apart :-)

Do you hand stitch or zig zag on the sewing machine?

I do the same. Just the plain stitch forward, backward, forward.

I sew mine by hand as well. My reason is simple, I like being able to tell people they are hand sewn .

I hand stitch overlapping the ends. You can sew it in the machine as well. After attaching the flower, I like to add a round piece of felt in the back to give it a more professional look, but also for more reinforcement.

I glue them, no complain so far. I am in the process of manking them adjustable though.
