Default Skinny Elastic.....Now What?

So, I bought some skinny elastic the other day, and now I don't know what to do with it! lol Obviously I want to make headbands, but how do you fasten the ends together? Do you just sew them, or is there more to it than that? TIA!!

I prefer to sew (makes it more sturdy). However you can use fabric Tac or hot glue to seal the ends.

I cut the elastic to 17 1/2" then glue a small pice of felt to the ends of the elastic( that matches my what ever I am putting on the headband) Then I just glue the flower right on top of that. I have not had one come apart yet.

I heat seal the ends and then hot glue them together. Then attach the bow/flower and put a piece of felt on the back using hot glue to hold it all together.

I'm cracking up that I saw your post! I was thinking the very same thing! I ordered some of the skinny elastic and didn't even have a clue as to how to do the ends, but I was scared to ask *how* on here without doing a search first. Didn't want the HG Police to get me for not searching first! Figured I would do my search this evening when the little one was in bed. Anyway- thanks for asking!

Too funny!!! :lol: I usually try to search first too, but I remembered I needed to figure it out and my two little ones were pulling on me. It was either post the question, or forget about it again for several days!! :lol: Thanks for the answers, Ladies---helps a lot!! I figured it had to be fairly simple!

I have been looking for a skinny band, but I am not sure what to use. Can you please send me a link or a picture to show me what you are talking about and hopefully that will solve my skinnyband issues too
