How to Cover Headband














Just sent the whole day (!) covering headbands with narrow Petersham for a wholesale order and am not finished yet - only half way through. Have got this down to a fine art now just got to concentrate and get the stitching straight and all pushes onto the narrow metal bands quite well. The join of the petersham is hidden under the trim of the finished product. All stitched on my trusty Singer straight sewer.

Wow! What a lot of work! I use sometimes tubular petersham or sating narrow ribbon, but in all honesty nothing beats real petersham sewn into a tube. The finish is very neat and elegant.

I also love your trusty Singer. I learned to sew on my grandmother's old Singer, no motor (pedal), and those are good machines.
