Smile Nylon Headbands?

It seems like it is popular to use nylon headbands for bows. Does anybody know how to make them? I am pretty sure you use trouser socks, but I am not sure how to sew it together. Any ideas?? Thanks!

Default Can you explain?

Would you explain how you put it together so it isn't too bulky and the toe/top of the sock doesn't show? I don't know why I am having such a hard time, but I am. Thanks.

I like to use microfiber tights- they are soft, stretchy, don't run or fray and come in cute colors. I cut them 13 inches long (in the middle of each leg- I cut off the toe seam), then lay the ends overlapping about 1/2 an inch. This seems to be the right size to fit all babies/toddlers. I then accordian fold the overlapped ends together (I try to get it as small as I can) and sew with my sewing machine through all the layers, once forwards and then once all the way through on backstitch and trim the threads. They come out great! I then trim the ends of the tights, and I can use a small ribbon and hot glue to cover the seam. They stay together really well. sometimes I use the ribbon that has knotted the center of my bow to cover the seam, or sometimes I make flower headbands and glue the flowers directly to the ribbon that has covered the seam. Does this make any sense?

I think this makes sense. I am assuming you buy children's microfiber tights and then cut it in between the legs and cut off the toe seam? Thanks again for your help. I can't wait to make some! I am planning on making them so that I can attach clips to the ribbon loop I will glue on.

I try to buy older girls sizes sot he let will be long enough. Then I just cut off a leg straight across and then measure 13" and cut the toe off there. I haven't made clips to go on them, but I have seen it done and I think it is a great idea. Then you can use those cute bows for a long time! Good luck.
