How to make and adjustable elastic headband.
For this headband we have used fold over elastic (FOE) you can use any elastic you like.
You will need:
- 1 set of headband ring and sliders.
- 61cm length of Fold over elastic (FOE)
- Glue of your choice. I used a hot glue gun.
- lighter or heat sealing tool.
Cut your elastic to length and heat seal the ends.
Take your 61cm length of fold over elastic (FOE) and feed your ring on to about half way so it is out of the way.
With shiny side up feed your fold over elastic through the slider loop and
over the centre bar and through the second loop.
This is the underside of the slider.
Fold about 2cm of fold over elastic over and glue down. I used a hot glue gun, you can sewn or use your favourite fabric glue.
You now have the ring in the centre of your fold over elastic and the slider attached to one end.
Take the other end of your fold over elastic with shiny side up feed it through the buckle the same way you did earlier.
Once you have looped the fold over elastic through the slider continue to pull the fold over elastic along.
The length you pull through does not really matter.
Feed the end of your fold over elastic through the ring overlap about 2cm and glue down.
You now have an adjustable headband made with fold over elastic.
