Fabric Flower Hair Clip Tutorial

You will need to cut out several circles. Depending on how many leaves you want. I took my coffee mug turned it upside down, traced it on paper and used that for my circle. If you want smaller leaves make a smaller circle.
Cut your circle in half.
Fold your cut circles in half. Only sew on the line you made to cut it in half.
Then you need to turn them outside in.
Flatten the leaf and then make a running stitch using matching thread.
Once you have done one just keep adding more leaves until you have as many as you want. (I just did 6) You can see your flower forming. Once your done adding your leaves just sew the last one and the first one together. You will need some wool felt and trace your hair clip.
Clip off the tip on one side and then sew together. Completed hair clip cozy.
You will need a vintage button and make another set of flowers this time using less leaves than the first time. I just used 4.
Stack them on top of each other and sew closed. Then sew on to your hair clip cozy.
Insert your hair clip and your done.
Enjoy! Feel free to use this tutorial for all your crafting needs.
Supplies needed:
Vintage sheets
Goody Hair Clips that snap
thread
basic sewing supplies
vintage button
wool felt (you can use craft felt but wool is stronger/thicker)

I love this flower clip. So cute. Thanks for the tutorial. DO you think it would work as well with an alligator clip? Or not so much?

Bchandler I think it might. You might have to play. OR use a hot glue gun to make it stay!
