Valentine hair clips- tutorial

I've had a lot of requests on how to make a simple valentine hair clip so here you go!

  • felt
  • scissors
  • button
  • hair clip
  • needle
  • embroidery thread
  • pin
  1. Make a heart template out of thick paper by folding it in half and drawing half a heart.
  2. Cut out template.
  3. Trace around heart onto felt.

  4. Cut out two hearts.

  5. Pin both hearts together.
  6. Using 3 strands of embroidery floss, sew a blanket stitch around the out side edge of both hearts.

  7. For the center of your hair clip, you can cut out smaller hearts out of felt or purchase pre-cut shapes. They sell these next to the felt sheets at Michael's. Some come with sticky backs, that's OK, we will glue them down so they will stay permanently.

  8. Sew the button on the outermost heart.

  9. Glue the smaller hearts together and then glue them down on the bigger heart

  10. About an inch away from the edge of the back of the heart, cut a half inch slit using pointed scissors in only the back heart. This will assure you of an invisible clip.

  11. Insert clip as shown.

  12. Enjoy!
