Name clippies: a tutorial

So i'm not sure why I decided to make these, because I don't usually let the girls wear their names on any part of their body because this world is pretty scary if you ask me...but she will only wear it around family and I have my children 24 hours a day 7 days a week they never leave my side maybe thats why I need a much deserved break :)






on to the tutorial


grab your supplies

 
place your tacky looking template on top and start to "embroider" the name or anything really doesn't have to be a name


cut a slit in the back felt piece and put your snap through like so


now place the two pieces together


grab the same color or different color and were going to stitch around the entire name


so you don't see the knot at first take the thread through the top piece of felt at first and then start to stitch both pieces together


Looks super sloppy but this is just a trial and error hairclip


didn't come out to bad but you get the jest, now that I think about it i'm going to make a better one and put picture up of how you can put other things on them besides there names because i'm not sure if I like her name being on there anymore

so indecisive

  1. that is so cute. I have been wanting to make hair pins for my little girlie for sooo long but having issues with finding little pins so it is small and not too big for a little girlie.

  2. Adorable! MY 4 year old would love one of those, but "Natalie" would take a long time to sew. ;) I'm visiting from Jennifer's Tutorial Tuesday party. :)
