Hello! I attended the Bluemont Fair in Bluemont, Virginia last weekend with my husband and saw some awesome hair clips and bows for little girls. One lady - Curious Bloom - made felt hair accessories for girls. Her creations reminded me of some I have seen on the PTI forum using flower dies. One smaller one in particular caught my eye. My daughter bought it for my granddaughter who is 1 year old. She used one of those snappy silver clips we used to use when I was little to hold back our hair. Once I got home, I decided to see what I could come up with using my PTI dies and PTI felt. I just love to make hair bows and clips for Chloe, my Granddaughter! So here is the fruit of my labor.
I tried and tried to figure out what to use for the body of the clip. Most of my Spellbinders Nestabilities ovals were too wide. I decided to go with an oval, instead of the clip shape the lady at the fair made. Guess where I finally found the shape I needed??? The oval cut out of the Front & Center #1 die fits perfectly! I also tried the Boy Basics skateboard, and that works, but is a little tight - it's more of a rounded rectangle shape.
These are the ones I've made so far. I'm going to call my little company (probably an Etsy shop) "Chloe's Clips" after my granddaughter. Each clip is about 2 1/2" long and 1" wide.
