Papertrey 6th Anniversary Boutique Accessory contest

Hello! I wanted to share some of my hair accessories with you today. I am entering them in the Papertrey Boutique Accessory contest here on Nicole's blog. I have been making felt hair clips for my granddaughter for awhile now, and I was delighted to see Erin's new dies to cut them out today, and the wonderful packaging to display them! I have been looking for a way to package my hair clips for my etsy store, and these will be perfect!

These are the felt hair clips I have made so far. I used several Papertrey dies to decorate them, including  Flower Fusion, Winter Penguin and Little Bitty Bird. I use all PTI felt, and there is no glue used - I hand stitch all of the decorations. I chose to use a buttonhole stitch to finish the edges instead of the backstitch I've seen on several others.

I made these little hairbands for my granddaughter when whe was a newborn. I used some elastic lace I found on Etsy, and some crochet flowers I purchased on Etsy too (I thought about trying to learn to crochet them, but soon decided it was alot easier just to purchase them in bulk!). The ribbon decoration is just a little accessory I purchased at Joann's and stitched onto the elastic. Very easy to make!

I made this next set of pins using embroidery stitches. The pattern is from a company called Bareroots - I just love all their designs. They are all made with just a simple backstitch and some french knots, then bordered with a little fabric and backed with more fabric. Al little more time consuming than the above accessories, but something to do while we watch tv in the evening.

These cute little hairclips are made with a fabric covered button, glued onto the same type of snap clips used in the felt clips.

And last, but not least, a little woolen pin to pin to a jacket.

Hope you've enjoyed all my little creations! I love making things like this, and can't wait to get my hands on Erin's new Clever Barrette Cover and the Boutique Accessory Card!
