Today I have a summer inspired craft to share, a tutorial to make a “Sunshine” hair clip holder.
It is very simple to make, just needs felt and ribbon and was all hand stitched. Below is the tutorial to make your own.
- Felt – I used light blue, yellow, gold/orange & white wool blend felt from Sew Sweet
- Chunky Ribbon – 2 pieces approx 8cm and 50cm each
- Threads, needle, scissors etc.
- Pattern (download here)
Print off the pattern pdf and use it to cut out your felt pieces.
Take one light blue felt circle and hand stitch the gold/orange bit of the sun to it. Then stitch the yellow center of the sun on top.
Place your second light blue felt circle behind the sun one. Fold the shorter ribbon piece into a loop and position it at the top, and tuck the single end of the longer ribbon piece in at the bottom, pin in place and hand stitch around the outside of the circle.
Take the two cloud pieces and pin them together, then at the top of the cloud add the other end of the long piece of ribbon between the felt pieces and pin in place. Hand stitch around the outside of the cloud, so the ribbon is secure between the pieces.
And your hair clip holder is finished! Now you need to make some felt hair clips to store on it!
The ones in the picture were made from covering some metal hair clips in green wool, and adding a felt flower, I am sharing the tutorial to make these on Sew Sweet this Monday, so be sure to check out if you want to make some too.
