Each step of the way is shown with clear pictures and text. This tutorial now includes detail instructions on how to weave ribbon onto the headbands to make woven headbands.

I have been selling finished and blank headbands for over a year now with great feedback! I am ready to now share the supplies and where to get them, preparation, and the process for completing the headband blank.
