Step 8-Finish gluing bottom trim into place slowly, only gluing inch by inch, because hot glue dries quickly and you want to avoid any lumps or bumps.

Step 9-Stitch and gather headband ribbon just behind the edge of first trim, repeat on opposite side

Steps 10-11-Glue finishing trim onto first trim, slowly gluing and placing for a nice and even finish.
