This is my first, ever, tut and I'm a newbie to stitching.
This is a simple, doodle embroidered, felt covered hair barrette. It costs almost nothing to make & in a snap!
Trace around the hair clip onto card stock
Cut about 1/4" around, larger than your tracing
Your template should look something like this
Using your template, cut out 2 pieces from your felt
Take 1 of the felt pieces and doodle embroider your design leaving about 1/4" edge all around
Put aside for a few
Place the hair clip on the remaining piece of felt
Approximate where you'll be inserting the narrow piece (the unsnapped hair clip's bottom piece) through the felt
Taking your scissors, snip a short slit like this...
With an unsnapped hair clip, insert the narrow piece through the slit you just snipped
Place the 2 felt pieces together, one on top of the other- your embroidered piece RS facing out, the underside should look like this
I used a running stitch all the way around
Turn it over
