Hair Clips Galore!

I love to make hair clips. They may just be my favorite craft/creation. I love that they don't take long to make. I love that you don't have to have a million supplies. I love that you can carry everything you need in one little pouch. I love that you can craft them anywhere ~ while waiting for an appointment, during your daughter's dance class, naptime. That is, if your children are nappers. Kameryn has decided she doesn't need naps anymore. But that's another story.
Let's get a move on, so that you can make yourself some hair clippies. But, I don't have any little girls, you say. Not a problem. I wear these clips, myself, and I love 'em. I surely do.

You're going to need a little wool felt, embroidery floss, snap clip, and needle. Oh, and scissors wouldn't hurt ;)

You may want embellishments.

First, you cut two pieces of felt. A top and a bottom. I use the snap clip as a guide, and leave about 1/4" around the entire clip.

Poke a little hole near the back of one piece so that you can slide the open clip through.

Slide the clip through, and snap closed.

Next, take the top piece and add your embellishement. I found these Amy Butler Brads at Joanns. I love them. Really, they make me happier than should reasonably be allowed.

See? Adorable, right?

Place the top piece of felt on the bottom piece that is holding the snap clip.

Thread your needle and start stitching. I use a blanket stitch because I like the look. Feel free to use whichever stitch you choose ;)

And voila!

Snap it in your hair, and you're ready to go!

Easy, Fast, Fun! Now go on, make yourself a hair clip or two.

I'm linking up to Jen @ Tatertots and Jello Weekend Wrap Up Party. Head on over and check out the awesomeness, whydon'tcha!
