    the band size was 1 length of an a4 sheet x 1/4 with of the a4 sheet.
    and i cut this out for the interfacing hard fabric for the center support of the head piece. and for the front main print and backing i cut around the interfacing leaving 2cm space around it.
    (i had to stich my main print fabric in the middle as it was a square piece rather then a long rectangular)
