Girly Headband Tutorials

Before Gwen came we had a baby shower and filled her closet with more pink than you can ever imagine. She got dresses, onesies, gowns, and a couple of headbands and shoes. But when she came out I suddenly felt like she wasn't nearly dolled up enough. I wanted headbands with bows, bows BOWS. For whatever reason, albeit the fact that I'd never shopped for baby things before or that I was  in survival mode, I had the most difficult time finding out where to get her these cute things. I turned to etsy and was dying to buy these:

from the shop Lou and Lee after seeing them on Naomi's cute baby via Rockstar Diaries. But I had a little trouble convincing my husband that $17 on bows for our newborn's head was the best way to spend our money at the time. So I tried to recreate them

 and let me just say, after it fell off 5 seconds later I was ready to spend the $17 behind the husband's back (being postpartumly insane and all). But I did some more research and found more reasonably priced headbands from the shop Little Pea Bows.
Gwen rocked that headband until it left marks on her head that looked a little painful. And then, I came out of the postpartum insanity fog and realized I can make these myself! They're quite easy once you figure it out, and tutorials help a lot. So I've put together a few of my favorites. 

 I'm attempting to  make one of these today for Ms. Gwen's holiday card photo shoot this weekend.
