Chicago and Headbands

Last Saturday we had the pleasure of traveling to Chicago to go to our friend's sealing. It was great to get to the temple and it was a nice little day trip. After we went to the temple my friend Lillian and I headed over to the Cheesecake Factory(our husbands had gone to pick up the kids from the house where they were being watched ). We were really excited to be able to look around the mall that the Cheesecake Factory was attached to before our families arrived. This mall was amazing, and since we only have one small mall near us in Indiana it was even more of a treat. While looking around the mall we found these super cute headbands for little girls at JCrew. Because Lillian had a gift card for JCrew, and because she is super nice, she bought a headband for her daughter and one for my girls! She then went home and figured out how to make a headband just like the JCrew one and taught me how to make them. They are so cute so I thought I'd share.
First, here are some pictures of the head band from JCrew
And here are the homemade headbands:

Your girls look adorable with the cute headbands! I think you need to post how to make them since they're so dang cute. Makes me really wish I were having another little girl. . .

Way to go! Those turned out so cute:) I'm glad we figured out how to make an almost replica since these things are so trendy and usually a little pricey! I am planning on wearing mine in my hair on Easter, what do you think?

How did you make those headbands? They are really cute! Could you send me instructions? The ones you made looked even better than the one you bought! My e-mail is mayescarolyn@yahoo.com. Thanks :)
