Default plastic headband for 12month old? skinny elastic help?

I have a customer that wants a plastic headband for a 1 year old. she doesn't want it to go all the way around like the infant headbands. the only sized I carry are 1/2 inch and 1 inch plastic and they seem big on my two year old so I doubt they would stay on her little 1 year old. what do you think? any suggestions?

metal headbands? little ones from walmart?

maybe I will suggest skinny elastic.... It not very noticeable and would stay on better in my opinion. what length do you make your headbands out of skinny elastic for....

newborn
toddler
teen-adult

also to make skinny headbands- do you sew the elastic together with a needle and thread, add the flower and back it with some felt?

thanks for any input!!!!

I was never able to find a headband that would stay on my 12 mo old. She's 20 months old now and they still fall off.

What I do is create the headband like normal, then I glue a piece of stretch ribbon on each end, that way when she can finally wear headbands all I have to do is take the stretchy ribbon off.

She has some hair in the back so you don't see the stretchy ribbon when she wears it, it looks just like a headband.

I had to repsond because I laughed out loud reading this. My 10 month old has such a big head she can wear 1" headbands like nothing! She has a huge head so it doesnt actually look bad at all. So, I guess maybe your customer might have a little one with a not so little head. Heeheee

When I make skinny elastic headbands, I make them in the sizes below.

Newborn - 3 months - 13 1/4 in.
3-6 months - 14 3/4 in.
6-12 months - 16 in.
12-Tween - 17 1/2 in.

You can also buy pre-made headbands at www.elasticbytheyard.com, they sell just the elastic too if you want to start from scratch. I've done both and been happy.
