I vote for this but more like the top of the forehead.

I have a baby you can borrow! She's not quite 9 pounds so she'd have to go out large Flat Rate Priority!! Ha ha!!! (Or I can take pics if you want!!)

Thanks for the tip on how you attach to the FOE. I am excited to give this a try! Just waiting on my feathers to arrive.

I love this!! I would start close to the ear and let it lay across their head.

Lay flat alongside the foe? I'm at a loss.... Any suggestions??

And just to give you an idea, she would like this headband of mine (she bought 4 of my new feather metal headbands - yay!) but this time on a foe headband:
How coincidental you posted this question! My sis is having her first baby girl and she has asked me to make a few bows for her. I thought I wouls make a few of these for her because my sis is really into pretty headbands.

To answer your question - I think the headband would look great if it started at the ear and went across the top of the forehead.

Don't call it a day, lol! I've been making bows for about 4 years now and sometimes I have to put on blinders when I see new projects. I know I want to do it someday, but have no time to try it yet.

I bought the feather pads from a group buy on the forum, they come as just the red with white curly tips you see on my headband. Then I took apart another white feather pad and that's the little white feather I added to the headband. Then I added the special diamond button and made a satin rosette and put it together. It didn't take long at all.

I think there is a group buy going on for some right now, but I'm not certain. They run about $1.20ish per pad.
Thanks for the encouragement and what they are and where I can buy them. They will be on my to-do list for sure!

Ok, here's how I ended up making them for my store:

And while I LOVE this headband, I am not a fan of the way it is sitting on the babies head, if I bought it I would adjust it to fit like the ones in the other pictures:

HTH!

OMG! Those are so cute! I wish my dd was a baby again!

I like them on the side, not on top of the head. It looks better that way imo! They blue one on the top of the head looks like it was thrown up there with no care.
