If you have a small head then you know the trials and tribulations I put up with when trying to wear a headband. The hard style just don't fit right and usually end up giving me a headache, and the soft style (like I made here for my niece) usually go flying off the back of my head. So, I've come up with a fast and easy way to get around all this.
Here's what you need if you have a small head too!
-lace or other trim
-measuring tape, scissors, needle and thread or a sewing machine
1) Measure your head from about an inch above your ear to the same spot on the other side of your head.

to take a picture of yourself like this?
2) Add about an inch to your measurement and cut your lace (or other trim) that length, then turn over the ends 1/2" and sew down.
3) With your ends sewn down, simply slip your bobby pins into the little pockets at each end.
Now you can slip your headband onto your head where you want it and pin it in place easily!

If you don't like bobby pins you can try butterfly style snap barrettes.
That's it, beyond easy, and you don't really even need a sewing machine. You could hand-stitch it if you really had to. You could really go to town and glue some flowers or other 'accoutrements' to your lace if you want to get fancy.
How about you? Do you have a hard time with head gear? Leave a comment below~
This is such a neat idea! And so simple. I have the same problem with headbands, they are always sliding off no matter how I try to keep them in place. Great tutorial!
So cute! simply pretty :)
What a clever idea. This is one of those times many of us are asking ourselves, "Why didn't I think of that?". Thankfully you did and now we have something we can use.
My problem is how fine my hair is and like you said, the hard types gives me a headache and the soft ones slip right off.
Thank you for sharing,

This is genius! I always have the same problems but I love how headbands look. Pinning this for trying later! Thanks for linking to the Craftastic Monday party at Sew Can Do:)
