Chevron Woven Ribbon Headband Tutorial

Hi everyone. 
Today I have a fun Chevron Woven Ribbon Headband Tutorial for you made with ribbon and supplies from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
 
After I posted my last woven ribbon headband tutorial, I was asked if I knew how to make one with a chevron pattern weave.  I didn't, but I fooled around with the weaving pattern and here is what I got.
 
The headbands below were made with 1/2" or 3/4" White Plastic Headbands and 3/8" Grosgrain Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  You could easily substitute 3/8" Satin Ribbon or any other opaque 3/8" ribbon.
 
 
 
 
This is the headband color combination I will demonstrate in the video below.
 
 
This is done on a 3/4" White Plastic Headband.
 
 

 
Fun pattern, right?
 
Below I have a video tutorial to show you how to make one. 
 
 
In case you missed the ribbon measurements, you will need two ribbons in contrasting colors.  For a 1/2" headband, cut two 30" pieces of each color.  For a 3/4" headband, make the lengths about 38" long.
 
I hope you'll try this new weaving pattern.  You'll find it's very easy to do.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
