New small Projects

Having two new little grand babies and one young grand daughter I have found a new little craft project that is both fulfilling and useful.  It is making little felt hairclippies.  I use the small metal hair clippies that 'snap' onto hair. I cover them with felt.  The bottom metal piece that bends to make it  'snap' is left out by clipping a small hole in the bottom piece of felt.  I blanket stitch around the two  pieces of felt to inclose the clip.  And then I embelish the clip by making something cute that I sew to the top of the  clippie.  They hold in the hair much better with the felt on them and they are just adorable in the babies hair.  I have a friend who is in her 30's who wears them and they are really beautiful in her hair.

Although the picture is a little blurry you can still get the idea of how I put the felt on the clip.

This one is really blurry.  I am not a good photographer.  But I am blanket stitching the two sides together.
Here my sweet little model is wearing two different felt flower clippies in her hair. 
I have also been adding silk flowers and bows to hair bands for older girls (including me).  They are so simple and very rewarding to be able to give them away to the young ladies at my church.
