I've been asked to do a couple of different felt tutorials for some upcoming projects, so I thought it was about time that I shared an easy hair clip tutorial with all of my lovely blog friends!
SUPPLIES. approximately 7.5" x 2.5" of felt for flower
about 1.25" x 1.25" of coordinating felt for center
2.25" x 2" of green felt for leaf
2" snap clip
embroidery floss to match felt color(s)
embroidery needlesharp scissors
flower clip templates (below)
(Click on the templates above to view and print them at original size. If it brings up a slideshow simply right click on the templates and select "view image".)
1. From the main felt color cut out two circles with the large circle template, and one circle with the medium circle template.
2. Cut a small circle for the center of the flower using the coordinating felt color.
3. Cut the leaf shape from the green felt.
4. Stack one of the large circles, a medium, and a small circle, and stitch around the perimeter of the small circle to hold them together.
5. Take the remaining large circle and put a slit in it just large enough to slip the center piece of the snap clip through. Stitch either end of the clip to the felt to hold it in place.
6. Positioning the leaf in between the layers, put the front and back piece of the flower together. (I embroidered my leaf to make it a little bit more fancy.)
7. Sew the flower together by stitching around the outside perimeter.
8. Stick the flower in your hair!
