Hair Clips

I have been experimenting with hair clips for the past month. I was originally inspired to put some together after reading this awesome blog post (one of my favorite blogs by the way). I had an immediate, "hey, I can make that!" moment. Here are some examples of clips I've put together. I've gathered a lot of inspiration from other mom friends and on Etsy.

I'm interested in all materials for making my clips. My original clips used scrap booking materials that I had lying around.

I've since gravitated more towards felt and fabric. Although, I've been experimenting with all kinds ideas. I really enjoy creating clips using my cross stitching.

These cross stitched clips were created for my niece. I'll need to get a photo of her wearing them, she is adorable.

I also made some special clips for my 8 year old niece's birthday.

Some heart clips for Valentine's day. Inspired my this wonderful tutorial.

And finally, some creations for another niece who will also be turning 8. I think the first clip is my favorite using a fabric yo yo.

There will be many more clips to come. I love that making hair clips is a get-in-get-out project. It doesn't take much time and you get to see someone else enjoy it.
