Oh, sorry. This post isn't about my punkin turning one. Not at all. Let me try to smoothly segue to the topic at hand...
Speaking of my daughter, take a look at THIS project:
(how was that?)
Remember when I made the scrappy felt and flannel hairclip for her last month? Well, this is the same technique, just a variation. See how versatile these clips are?
I made two Valentine-y hairclips because we like our options around here. Plus, they take mere minutes to make.
For my flower clip, I cut out three circles in varying sizes and two leaf shapes. Then I stacked and stitched them together with a contrasting color of embroidery thread. Easy-peasy. I then attached the hairclip with a thinner thread.
Hobby Lobby has several hairclip options to cover whatever clip works best for your little miss.
For the second clip, I cut out two heart shapes (I just freehanded these, no need to go gettin' all precise!). Then I stacked the hearts and stitched a chain down the length of the smaller heart in my contrasting embroidery thread. I attached the hairclip and that was that.
My sweet angel modeled the hairclips for me first thing this morning. She's not that terribly excited about modeling hairclips for me. But, I managed to get a few pictures before she ran away.
Wanna see some of the pictures that didn't make the cut??
Oh, it just isn't easy being so cute.
