Did you order your chair bands or make them? If you made them… What fabric did you use and how much of it did you use? If you ordered them, where did you order from?
I made them. I used a cotton poly blend that is stretchy. It took 14 yards to make 150 chair bands. I found some of the material on sale at Wal-Mart for $1.00/yard. The rest was $2.97/yard. It almost looks like t-shirt material. It wasn’t hard at all….I cut it with a rotary cutter and my Mom sewed them together.
Thank you! It was easy! I cut the fabric with a rotary cutter into 6 3/4 – 7 inch strips at 30 inches in length. We took 2 inch satin ribbon and glued fabric down the center of it. We cut the ribbon into 5 inch strips and hot glued them together to make a ring. I slid the rings onto the material and my Mom sewed them together. We moved the ring over the seam to cover and voila….we had our chair bands. I spent $45 on the fabric and ribbon. My Mom already had the material from lining the flip flop baskets so I got it for free. Lol!
you did an amazing job! i am so gonna try this…its seems a lot cheaper and looks great! good job!
