Embroidered Felt Hair Clip

I tried making embroidered felt hair clips and I love how they turned out.
They are so quick and easy to make too!

Materials needed:
(I used craft felt - 25¢/piece)
embroidery floss
2" snap clip
hair clip template
(download here)

Pin the template to your felt and cut 2 pieces.

Fold one piece of the felt in half lengthwise and make a small cut near the top of the felt

Slip the hair clip in the cut you just made, center, and snap it closed.

Embroidery a cute doodle on the other piece of felt, then sandwich your clip between both pieces.
Embroidery a blanket stitch around the edge.
Here's another good blanket stitch tutorial too!

All done!

See how cute it looks on Serenity!
She's been wearing her "Princess" dress all day.
It's her favorite dress-up outfit!

I bought hair clips from Wal-Mart in the sewing notions section.
You can get 30 of them for around $3!
Each finished clip costs less than 15
If you use 100% wool or a wool/rayon felt blend the costs will go up a few pennies.

f your local Wal-Mart doesn't sell them, the Ebay store, Bonita Girl Shop sells a 100 pack for $4.99 + $2.75 s/h.
That's 7¢ apiece!

And don't laugh at my embroidery!
I'm still learning!

Primrose Design posts so many wonderful detailed stitch tutorials!
It's great for you beginners like me.
She answered questions I had that I couldn't find in all
three of the books I've been reading!

I would like give a big thank you to for linking this post!

Have fun!
