I finally got around to making my daughter some hair clips. This has been on the to-do list for quite some time now. Since I had all the supplies out, I made a second set as a gift (pictured above). And because I was feeling extra crafty, I made a tag for them as well.
If you've been online for any time now, you know this is an old idea that's been done many times. Because of that, I'm just sharing brief instructions on how to make them.
I got this fabric a while back from Modes4U if anyone is interested. It's so pretty, I don't want to waste it. I don't know what it is about me and fabric but I never have the heart to cut into it. So, if you have any suggestions on what else I should make with the fabric, please share.
To make the hair clips I first made some fabric covered buttons. You can find fabric covered button kits at most fabric stores. It takes about 10 seconds to make a fabric covered button. Next all you have to do is glue the button to a standard hair clip. I recommend using E-6000 glue because it's strong and flexible when it dries. That's it, super easy right?
*Fabric Button Tip: To keep your fabric centered when making a fabric button, apply a little fabric glue to the top of the metal button.
