Default Okay so I made a tutu...using HB

I had read on here that using a crochet headband was a easy way to make you tutu extra fluffy. Soo... I tried it and the tutu came out great. BUT! The waiat band (the headband) streched out and barely fits my 5 year old, it is too big. I had heard that a crochet headband would fit 24 months and up. I dont know if I am doing something wrong or what. I really like using the headband because I love how fluffy it was.

Could you weave a piece a ribbon through it and cinch it a bit?

Maybe... I just know I am doing something wrong if so many people use that method. My knots are spreading the headband out and making it bigger.

How many strips of tulle are you putting in each hole? I find if I do more than one it makes the knot bigger and can stretch the headband out more so I do one strip but 2-3 layers of holes.

Only one, but three layers.

I wonder if you could by the crochet headband by the yard and make the bands a couple inches smaller than the waist size.

I've seen it by the yard at Walmart in the ribbon section.

If you're going to have to sew it together if you get it by the yard, why not just cut the headband and make it smaller?
