The One with Shamrock Hairclips


Friday, March 16, 2012

In honor of St. Patrick's Day which is tomorrow I thought I'd share a li'l project I made which was published in the March/April issue of Simply Handmade called SEWING: shamrock hairclips!

SHAMROCK HAIR CLIPS
Clips are 4 x 3"
Supplies: Clips: Hair supply; Needle: Dritz; Floss: DMC; Felt: C.P.E., Inc.; Hot glue gun: Craft supply

How to:
1. Cut out a shamrock from dark green felt, a slightly larger shamrock from light green felt, a four-leaf clover from light green felt, and a slightly larger clover from dark green felt.
 2. Layer the smaller felt shapes onto the larger ones and hand stitch around the edges and down the center of each leaf with light green floss.
 3. Cut out two rounded strips from green felt and hand stitch around the edges with dark green floss.
 4. Glue the felt strips along the tops of two hair clips then glue the stitched shamrock and four-leaf clover to the green strips.

 Tip: You can make hair clips for every season and holiday from felt! Stock up on a rainbow of colors when they go on sale so you’ll always have what you need on hand.

There are always tons of fabulous and unique ideas in the Simply Handmade magazines - I'm super excited about the one being published next month: BABIES! Perfect timing :) Here's a sneaky sneak of something I made for the BABIES issue:
