It looks cute to me! What colour are the BM dresses?

It looks ok, but i’m not a headband person. I’d rather be headbandless.

I think you did a really good job. I don’t wear headbands, so I wouldn’t wear it, but my daughter and my sister would. To finish off the edges, I suggest going Joanns and get a bottle of fray check. It used to be called fabric fray. I sew a lot and I know it works really well, but make sure it is the Dritz brand. It works the best.

Oh, I forgot, you can go online and do a search for Joann’s coupons, so you can get 40% to 50% off.

You are very welcome. The glue will work if you want the fabric to stick together. The fray check is for the ends so they don’t fray. You just need a little bit and it dries clear and soft. Just make sure you do a test peice first to get the hang of it. If you are trying to glue it to the headband, try using double sided glue tape. It comes in a roller thing that looks similar to a liquid paper dispenser.

It says online only, but I know they sell them at Michaels and Joanns here.

Here is a link to the Fray Check too, so you know what it looks like: http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?pageName=search&flag=true&PRODID=prd2992′ defer=’defer

If you aren’t going to see the ends of the ribbon you could always run a lighter over them. This will “melt” the ends and essentially do the same thing as fray check for free. Just do a test run first and be careful not to hold it in the flame to long…it only takes a second

Oh and super glue works all the same if you have that laying around.

I love the look of headbands & a curly, side pony!

Honestly I personally would not wear a head band I feel like a kid in them, i feel the same way about tiaras too. I have seen head bands look cute on some people though and it depends on the rest of your attire.
