    Oh, what a lovely headband! I suspect that most of us regard velvet as a fall/winter material, but in pastel shades, paired with lace, I think that it’s just as pretty in the spring and summer months!

    Since I am still watching audio-less videos :(((((, I don’t know if this question was addressed: Because the part of the headband covered by the ribbon and lace won’t stretch as much as it would if, say, a flower were glued onto it, should the headband be made a bit longer than the desired size? Thanks!

    Thank you, Shirley (I think!), for sharing yet another one of your beautiful designs! xoxo

      Hi Pat! Thank you! I agree…I have always thought of velvet as a fall/winter material as well! However, Shirley totally changed that mindset with this gorgeous headband using the pastel velvet. This headband is so pretty and perfect for all year long!
      I am sorry about your audio-less videos. No, your question wasn’t addressed but you make a good point. You could definitely make the headband a tiny bit larger if you wanted it to last a little longer. However when I have made headbands similar to this one, I didn’t feel that I needed to make the headband a different size due to what I was embellishing the headband with. But, it wouldn’t hurt anything to add a small amount of elastic to be on the safe side. Thank you for your question and have a wonderful day! Michelle 🙂
