Default What size headbands?

I hope this is the right folder to post. I'm interested in buying some headbands from some of the destashs I see here, but I'm clueless on size.

Is 1 1/2 for newborns? Looking for newborn and toddler sizes. I want to buy a few different kind of headbands (nylon, crochet, etc) because I've never had one before and don't know what I'll like until I see it and touch it in person.

Sorry if this has been answered several times. I tried searching, but didn't see anything on choosing sizes.

Thanks!

Erica

1 1/2 is the width of the headband. Here is the sizing chart I use when make elastic and FOE(fold over elastic) headbands. HTH!!
Newborn - 13 1/4"
3-6 Months - 14 1/2"
6-12 Months - 16"
12 Months-Teen - 17 1/2"
Adult - 18"

Thanks, that was a great help. Any idea on what widths for crochet headbands? 3 in seems huge!

I put in an order request for you, but I forgot to add headband size. I better go back.

For a new born I would do 1 1/2. I have a bunch of 3in and they are pretty big, but they still look cute. Here is a pic of one.

Default Re: What size headbands?

Can anyone help me with this question - I am making my first FOE headband for a 3-6 month baby, but I have the head circumf. as 37.5 cm = 14.5". SO, do I cut the FOE to 14.5" and then sew with an overlap so it stretches to 14.5"?

Any help would be great.

Thank you
