Default Headbands that aren't elastic!

Hi all.

So I got a few requests from parents at the local swim clubs to make swim team hair stuff. But, many said the FOE/skinny doesn't stay in the kids hair, and want hard headbands. I ordered a few plastic ones to make braided hbs a while ago and found that they didn't fit well.

What other ideas are out there for hbs??Any tuts, videos, links would be much appreciated...

Just looks like she put woven ribbon/embellishment and velvet sewn together with a piece of elastic sew to the two ends.

Cut two pieces of ribbon to size needed. Use one of the thicker pony tail holders and cut it two. Sew the long sides of the ribbon together. Fold under "short" ends of ribbon and place one end of cut pony tail holder in between the folded ribbon on each side. Sew straight across short ends. This may be as "clear as mud", but hopefully it helps!

I was about to say that it was probably velvet and when I went back and read the description, she says that it is lined with velvet.
She probably glued a little strip of velvet ribbon on the underside to keep it from slipping.

I've been sitting here with ribbon trying to walk thru your description. I'm a picture person, so I'm going to try real hard to make this work.

Any other ideas on types of headbands besides elastic? I guess I could use metal ones and line with 7/8" ribbon and sew edges together eh?
