I hope that none of you have been too concerned that I have been wallowing in the I-need-to-find-a-place-to-move-to Blues. While it has been on my mind (for sure), I have continued to carve out bits and pieces of time to MAKE. It just needs to happen to keep me from exploding.
This weekend I reached into my bag o' linkies and pulled out one that I had bookmarked ages ago, but never attempted. Koala Brains posted this little tutorial on how to make Felt Flower hair clips nearly a year ago. Yes, I'm a bit behind. ;)
These are so fun to make! I'm in the middle of a 100 Day Craft Burn, so it's a good thing I have been hoarding some goodies: ribbons and buttons, some elastic left over from a previous project, and my fat stack of felt (somehow I WAY overbought for that Felt Nativity project I was working on before Christmas last year). I could probably drum up some mismatched barrettes to use on these flowers, but I wanted to make Little Miss some hippie hairbands instead because clips seem to fall out of her hair all the time (and with her long curly hair she already looks so very much like a Flower Child). I hadn't yet attached the yellow and green one to a band when this picture was taken:
I'm linking up to some awesome linky parties this week. Check them out here and share the linky love!
