Ribbon headbands

I had two ten year old girls for the day.  In the last hour of their visit, they asked if they could sew something.  I convinced them to make headbands and remembered some stripey ribbon I had and knew that this would be the quickest way to go. They got lost in my bags of fabric and started wrapping and draping themselves and I was left to sew...

The process is really quite simple, I eye-balled it and it worked, but I realised that if they had been the wrong fit, I would have had to unpick six rows of forward and backward stitching.  My suggestion would be to put your stitch length on the longest and give each join one row of stitching before trying it on.
