This fun in-the-hoop project is sure to please any little girl (and any grown up who loves something that is super quick and easy to do!)
I have had soooo many requests for some form of barrette/clip cover, so I hope you are going to like these!
Ever wanted to make some of those cute felt hair clips for the little girls in your life, but thought they were far too fiddly and time consuming with all that tedious hand-sewing?
Got any of these lying around the place??? They are kind of plain and boring aren't they....
Turn them into something special with your embroidery machine and a few scraps of felt!
There are eight different edge-stitch designs which are all included with your purchase, as shown below...
The design fits a 4x4 hoop, and I have also included a design for each edge-stitch variation which has three of the same clip covers made in one 4x4 hooping to save you time! If you have embroidery software that is able to merge designs, then of course you can combine clip covers with different edge-stitches of your choice into one hooping.
**PLEASE NOTE** YOU ARE PURCHASING ONLY THE SNAP BARRETTE CLIP COVERS AS SHOWN ABOVE, NOT ANY OF THE FLOWERS OR EMBELLISHMENTS (they are purely for display and idea purposes only). The felt flowers are however available separately - click here!
Easy-to-follow instructions are included in PDF format (with photos).
The clip is entirely enclosed for a very neat finish! Here's what the back looks like...
The design has been sized to snuggly fit a snap barrette clip (like the silver ones in the photo above) that measure 50mm long x 14mm wide (at the widest part at the end). They will also fit the 47mm long snap clips (just not quite as snug).
Have fun embellishing them however you like - the Stitch 'n Stack Flower Felt Stitchies in the hoop designs are a great way of doing that (not included in your purchase, but available separately here)
You can also use normal cotton fabric too, like the ones shown below....
And all little girls love anything sparkly, so you can see why this one is my little girl's favourite....
Or you can add a fabric yo-yo or ribbon flower....
If you do have bow-making skills, then that would be another cute idea, or how about some rhinestones or a silk flower, or a even a fabric covered button?
The possibilities are endless!!!
Alison sent in this picture of a clip she made for her daughter - it is absolutely gorgeous - thanks Alison!
