|insert the plastic tube into the fabric tube|
|shove the end of the fabric into the plastic tube with the dowel|
|viola....it works. *see further instuctions below|
|fabric tubes ready to be ironed and attached with elastic to headbands|
|finished headbands ~ ready for shoeboxes|
The link for the headbands is http://www.happytogetherbyjess.com/double-sided-fabric-headband-pattern/. My suggested to slightly change her directions is....to sew one side of the headband and press, then turn under both ends, press and sew. Then sew the other side and turn, then press. It seems like this would be a whole lot easier than trying to shove the ends up to encase them in the seam after the top was sewn on both sides. I am going to try this next time...because I did it the "shove" way this time. Even if you don't sew the ends, you can press the ends.
