Felt covered hair clips

Hello!  Well, has it been a while?  I suppose so.  I've been kind of lazy not wanting to photograph my crafts and share them here.  But today, I got myself to get off my butt and do something.  Mostly I thought I'd rather blog today than clean up my crafty stash!  I've got cardstock and fabric laying in piles on the floor. 

I've been making some stuff cause on Saturday, I'll be at a friend's house trying to sell my creations.  I actually haven't made anything too new.  I still have my leftover calendars, some old cards, simple little earrings, hair bands and mini key chains.  I'll try to photo some of the stuff I haven't shared before. 

I thought I'd finally dig out those PTI dies to make these hair pins.  I have a love/hate relationship with PTI.  Today's post is about love towards PTI cause I think these turned out super cute.  And I didn't haven't to fight the dies into cutting the PTI felt.  So that was good too.  Pretty easy to make these but they do take some amount of time to stitch up by hand.

I used my PTI felt for these since I used up all the inexpensive Walmart felt on my felt mice during Christmas.  Those are just some heart buttons I had in my stash too.  Do you love the little Mama Elephant penguin with the big bow in her hair?  I know penguins have nothing to do with hair clips but it's so cute!

Another set of heart clips.

A set of yellow ones.  I just used embroidery floss to stitch these up. 

Here is the back of one.  So there is just one tiny thing that bugs me about the clips I made and that is that I had to tie a little knot on the back to hold my thread together.  I know I could've pulled them through the holes and tucked them under the felt so they can't be seen but then it was kind of lumpy.  I don't know, it bugs me a little and stuff like that bugs me but I am just going to let this go and go on with my crafty life. 

Maybe next post I'll share about what is driving me crazy in making Valentine treats for my son's class.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cute hair clips! That penguin is so cute too! Ha, that darn little piece of thread! At least it's on the back where you can't see it when you're wearing the clips. Have fun at the craft party!

Love this! I have been making those barrettes too and have such a love/hate relationship with PTI. Their customer service is atrocious. I am obsessed with bows, I hope they still have that penguin set at Mama E. What's it called? Your stuff rocks.
