Default interchangeable skinny elastic ???

A customer wants an interchangeable 1/8" headband. I told her that she can just clip the bow or flower to the headband, but she says she wants it to be paralle to the headband, not crossing it (the bow is sideways on the head if she clips it on).
So should I just get a piece of 3/8" ribbon & glue it on to were the seam is on the headband. Make it big enough for a double prong to go through.
Do you think that would work? I don't know how else I would do it.

TIA!

Yup, that will definitely do the trick. Glue one end of the ribbon on inside of headband where the seam is, then go over and glue the other end. She can then clip her flowers/bows parallel to the headband! HTH

I do mine the same way. I actually just did my first 1/8" interchangable headband Monday night. Lol.

erin: how did it hold up? I would think that the skinny elastic would be too thin to hold a flower clip up properly.

I might try a felt circle on each side of the headband and then clue your loop to that. It might add some extra stability.
