I actually have some of that elastic thread. thanks for going to the trouble of posting the link.

I didn't know you could use regular caulk. I am going to give that a try too. You know, one method may work on one type of hat and not on another.

Teesha Moore inspired patches--anyone want to swap?

I have similar problems because my hair is superfine and actually thinning! I'm 48. For me it's things like hair bands (like those worn in the 1960s) and barettes. I just don't wear that stuff! For hats, I usually wear touques that I knit (ribbing on the cuff) and they stay on.

They flatten my hair though, which I don't like :-/

You could get a tube of clear silicone caulking (for use in bathroom renovations, etc.) and put dots of it on the inside of the band of the hat.  It wouldn't feel tight because the bits are not continuous - they are just grippy bits.  Let it dry thoroughly before wearing.  It would be machine washable once dry.

This could also help retrofit existing headwear in her collection.

Rather than caulking, try puffy fabric paint.

I post all my crafty stuff on Facebook.  I'd LOVE if you'd like my page!
