DIY Headbands

Recently while surfing Pinterest, I came across an adorable headband project by The Long Thread. The Long Thread had a template, instructions, and materials list! On Friday, my grandmother, cousin, and I went out to Joann's Fabric to buy fabrics and the elastic. Following the instructions from the LT, my cousin and I cut them out and my grandmother sewed the headbands and put the elastics in. I think they came out great!
