OMG I read it the same way.

Blondie and ejbryant have a facebook site where they wholesale FOE and Elastic LACE

I think others destash and sell a little cheaper, but they have a pretty good selection. I have also found elastic lace on ebay.

I can't lie, when I first read this post, the first thing that came to my mind was this was an innocent question (which was true) but once I saw Senior Member under your name, I thought someone trying to make a mockery of others who have "burned their biscuits" in the past. I'm sorry It's actually very nice to hear someone who is successful still have to ask a genuine question every now and then...With headbands, if I can sew the ends and if the whatever fabric I'm using will allow me to, I take the ends of the material, overlap and glue them on top of eachother by about 1/2, horizontally. Then take a scrap/matching color ribbon a wrap that around vertically, of the ends you just glued. That way, you can either glue is loose enough to allow the HB to be interchangeable with a loop, and/or it bunches up the center (some prefer this look) and it covers the not so appealing ends that are glued.. Oh, and I prefer FOE elastic or nylon HTH

Hi! I love making interchangeable elastic headbands (made with fold over elastic). They have served me the best. Here are the instructions:

Cut a piece of elastic (whatever size you need it) generally if you have the head size subtract an inch since it is so stretchy. Here is the general size chart I use.
Sizes:
Newborn to 3 months - 13.0"
3 to 6 months -14.0"
6 to 12 months -15.0"
12 months to 3 years -16"
3 years to teen- 17"
Adult -18"
Then you can either sew or hot glue the ends together (a little overlapping).
Cut another piece of elastic (typically the same color) 1 1/2" long. This piece will go around the seam of your headband and is what makes it "interchangeable". Hot glue the ends of the piece around the seam on the inside of your headband.

I sell both wholesale elastic and interchangeable headbands in my etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/BizeeB
I am also running a promo that if yo like Bizee B Boutique on facebook you get a code for 10% off in my shop as well as the 75th and 150th fan get a free item. Hope this helps!
