A couple of weeks ago I went to Zara with my friend Julieta to help her shopping for some basics. Sorting through one bin of clearance stuff I found a nice fabric hair clip made of silk with raw edges. I though it was pretty cool and easy to make, and I didn’t want to pay $12 ($12!) for it. So here it is!
You will need:
- One 6″ x 12″ piece of silk (I use crepe Georgette Silk, but any kind of silk will do).
- One 4″ x 5″ piece of felt of the same color.
- Sewing machine or needles if hand sewing, scissors, thread
Download the free pattern and cut it out of the felt piece. Cut 12 1″ x 5″ strips out of silk.
Center and pin the strips into the piece of felt, overlapping them about 1/4 of an inch.
Once you pin all the strips, sew them straight down the middle across all the strips.
Now turn it 90 degrees and sew down the middle of each strip.
Now that you are done with the sewing, gather the whole thing with your fingers in the middle and secure it with a couple of stitches. You can hand sew this with double threaded needle or run it trough the sewing machine a couple of times.
Attach a hair rubber band to it and you are… finito!
Now kiss your baby and thank her/him for taking a nap so you were able to make it! 🙂
A big GRACIAS to Julieta once again for taking these gorgeous photos!
I would love to see if you make one. Please share it at the Mother Crafter Project Pool!
I craft all night and party everyday at these Craft Parties.
