Scraps of denim fabric (these were scraps from a thrifted denim dress I altered)
2″ snap clips
1 3/4″ wool felt balls
From your denim fabric, cut out the back and front pieces for your hair clip (you can use this rough drawn image as a template for cutting out the pieces). Sew around the entire perimeter of the hair clip about 1/8″ in from the edge. Hand-sew the ball on to the widest end of the denim front piece, then insert the snap clip into the back. Secure the snap clip in place, by sewing through the hole on the top of the snap clip, and attaching it to front denim piece. Don’t forget to snip any excess threads!
If you don’t have a sewing machine (or don’t know how to use one), the two denim pieces can be sewn together with either a blanket or running stitch all the way around, and I think that would be just as cute. I think next time, we will attach the pieces together with a blanket stitch.
With four girls, we are always scrambling for hair clips in this house. They are constantly losing and misplacing them, so when there’s a need… we make it! We have a couple other styles we want to make, so we will share those once they’re done. For other hair clips tutorials, check out my sweetheart felt clip and my rosy posy felt clip. If you want other quick (and some take more time) sewing projects, my book, Let’s Sew Together, features about 30 projects. Almost all are unique to the book and are not projects that have been reused from the blog.
on glow: circus romper, c/o pigs & roses. high-tops, c/o old navy. denim jacket, old navy. We bought this jacket when True was a baby and it’s 3-6 months, but Glow still wears it even though she’s way past that, and it’s just a 3/4 sleeves denim jacket on her.
