Default FOE Headband Suggestion please

I am making FOE headbands that will be interchangeable. For those of you who have experience with these I would like to know if using grosgrain or the same FOE is better for making the loop to attach clip.

Please advise........much appreciated!

Thanks for the reply - I wonder why some people use grograin?

Does the FOE loop seem to stretch over time?

I use grosgrain, and I've never really considered why! I think it cuts easier and faster with the wood burner and so they go together a little faster...

but on the other hand, I think the foe loop would be softer for newborn baby head. I've been thinking about switching to foe loops for my smallest bands.

I do FOE because it is a guaranteed match! I don't understand why people use grosgrain, I don't think there is an advantage expect maybe people will understand that its different? lol

I only have sons so have never actually used them. I've sold a ton and never had anyone comment that the foe loop has stretched????

When I first started making them I would use the grosgrain but didnt really like how they didnt match and I personally didnt like how they would hold the clip. Not sure how to explain that one.
But I now use the same foe for the loop. :-)

Same as above...When I first started I used to use grosgrain but then I switched to using the FOE. If I do lace ones I even use the lace for the loop now...just looks nicer I think.
