Default elastic ribbon headband????

I have an order from a cheer team for 15 headbands like this:

http://www.etsy.com/listing/65271467...rder=&includes[0]=tags&includes[1]=title&filter[0]=handmade

(not my picture! From Etsy!)

She wants the elastic to join in the back. I have the red glitter ribbon trim from JoAnns - but what would be the best way to do the ends of the ribbon? I am obviously going to sew the elastic on (about 4") and the rest of the headband will be about 13" long for a total of 17" since these are High school girls.

I just cannot figure out how to do it so it does not look messy on the ends?? Do I fuse a piece of felt to the back of the ribbon and sandwich the elastic in between??? Help?????????

I would think the felt is a good idea. :-) Hope it works out for you.

well i made some of these and i just took a piece of ribbon and covered the area where the 2 ends meet... but i was thinking of using FOE next time i make them so they will be softer then the reg black elastic.

do you sew the elastic to the glitter ribbon, then take grosgrain and wrap the ends?

Thanks for the tut!!! I watched it! I wonder where she gets that glitter strip?? And does it just iron on without having heat ad bond on the back???

And is non roll eltic a must????

Anyone have an idea on the size? As they are for a team - I am not going to measure every head!

I think they offer the glitter strips on their website Hair-hardware. I bought some through a group buy on here that someone did. Not sure who their supplier was.
