Default Re: interchangeable skinny elastic ???

okay, i made one really quick. I used 1/8" elastic & 1/4" grosgrain.
I don't like the look of it. It looks weird, but you'll never see the loop when the put stuff into it.
As far as it holds up, it worked ok. My dd wouldn't put it on, so I made my ds wear it (mean, I know, but he's 3 & doesn't complain).
He wiggled in it & it stayed in place. I tried with single & double. The double worked best.
Posted really crappy pics of what it looks like.
the last pic shows that its not flush on his head.

PS. don't tell my husband i put a bow on my ds

What if you used 2 pieces of GG?? That might give it more 'stability' and keep it flusher to the head.

It look pretty good! I think it would work alright for the toddlers as they have hair and tend to wear in the proper position. I would think maybe a bubba wearing it would cause it to fall? I dunno....just me imagining in my head.

I had the same request last week. I uses a 1/4 ribbon and put the bow on a snap clip, it stayed clipped better than the alligator clip did

My customer said that it held up really well. It was a medium sized flower that she was putting on it and it had a snap clip (dont know if that would make a difference or not). I had even thought for more stability putting 7/8 inch ribbon, but havent tried that yet so not sure.

I was looking on etsy last week and actually saw a picture of a skinny headband and the person had used the same skinny elastic, but put two strips of it about 1/2 inch apart from each other. It blended really well with the headband and may provide more stability with the two strips. Again, I have not tried this myself, just saw it on an etsy listing and have it on my "to try" list. Lol.
