    Once you get to the end, secure the chain with a couple of stitches. Then cut off excess thread. The chain doesn't need to appear perfectly straight when you're sewing it on. Since the ribbon is stretch, it'll pull the chain to make the perfect headband.

    Now sew both ends of the stretch ribbon together. It's always best to stitch all around, forming a square of stitches. Make sure this is secure.
