"The ones I have seen consist of three fabric tubes, stuffed loosely with fiberfill and braided together. The ends of the stuffed tubes are joined to a piece of elastic to allow it some stretch. The measurements would vary some depending on the size of the dancers and the type(s) of fabric used. The ones around here have tubes about 5/8 inch in diameter, so you could start with a 3" wide strip of fabric and take up a 1/2" seam. The total length after braiding should be about 5" less than the head circumference, then add about 4" (unstretched) 3/4" elastic, taking up a 1/2" seam. Make one to try out the measurements before cutting all your fabric, as each fabric varies. Just a caution, these headbands do not look great with the comb type wigs, as they show the whole way around the head, rather than "hiding" in the hair behind the ears."

[> Subject: Crown making tip

I made my daughter's crown from a Renaissance costume pattern. The pattern for the crown was a little to round for what I wanted so I altered the curve into a slight point. It worked very well. I used velvet and trimmed it with piping covered in satin. Then decorate with sequins, rhinestones, etc. Hope this helps.
