Felt Hair Clippies
Sorry I've been absent for a few days! Things have been a bit busy! My cousin got married this weekend, so we had a fun and family filled weekend of wedding preparation and visiting, not to mention carting the kids around from place to place :)The wedding turned out beautiful, and I enjoyed a day sans kiddos! Now we are back into the swing of things. I had planned on sharing a little Easter craft I put together on Friday, but I have yet to take the pictures, so I'm puling a craft from the archives!
If you have a little girl, or know someone who does, this is a great project to spice up their wardrobe.
Felt: I buy mine by the yard at JoAnn's, since I make these for my shop. You could also buy just the squares.Snappi Clips: Found at beauty supply shops
Thread: regular thread works, thats what I used in the pictures, but embroidery thread is even better!
Beads if wanted
1. Cut two rectangles out of your felt. I hold the clip up to the felt and make sure I have adequate room around it for my design and stitching around the clip.
2. Cut out your decor for the top, and stitch it on! Stitching rather than gluing will give it better longevity.3. Take your back piece of felt and cut a slit in it for the bottom part of the Snappi to go through (see the picture!)4. Place the two pieces of felt around the clip with the bottom part of the clip coming through the slit and stitch around the edges.
Voila! You are done!
