Felt Is My Thing - Hair Clippies

Recommended Posts

I started out making bows for my daughter, but the majority of them should be posted in the Shit I Fucked Up forum. :mrgreen:

 

I found my groove doing things in felt, like hair clips - super quick to make, can match any of her gazillion outfits, and can be mixed and matched on headbands and such. I've even made a few of them bigger (palm-sized) and put on pins to clip to my tote bags and to hold scarves.

 

I haven't sold any through my Etsy shop yet, but local facebook friends seem to like them.

These are the only ribbon creations I've done successfully:

Those are really nice. You clearly have a knack for these. And your daughter must have a lot of fun wearing them, too.

This may be a really stupid question, but are the ribbon ones made out of silk ribbon? They look like they are. I entertained doing silk ribbon stuff but never followed through.

Thanks! The ribbon ones are actually made out of grosgrain ribbon, which is stiffer and holds its shape. I have tried with silk/satin ribbon before and it is just too soft.

OK so it was indeed grosgrain ribbon! I thought that too, but figured nah, the grosgrain might be too stiff plus silk does have a similar texture.

Hope that you get some sales on Etsy. I am considering opening a shop to sell some of my frou-frou knitted scarves which I will post on the completed projects forum Signed up four years ago but never took the additional steps to open a shop yet. Now I am finally going to do this and see how goes.

Wow. Those are amazing!

Do. not. need. another. hobby. Must. resist.

I love the itty bitty flower ones. So cute :)

have you ever made any smallish butterflies? *hint hint*

What kind of clips do the small ones use. Would they work in shortish dog fur? All the cute dog bows I've found use the rubber band to hold them on and my girls don't really have that much hair on their heads to do the rubber band thing without it being painful (I imagine) for them. I've been looking for small ones with clips for ages.

Yes, I *am* that dog person, why do you ask? (in my defense my adult chi is a total diva and gets angry and pouts if she is not dressed at nearly all times)

I have made butterflies before, they are this pattern:

The small ones I put on 1.5" alligator clips. I have seen teeny tiny snap clips like these that come in a 3/4" to 1" size that are used for babies with very little hair - these clips will hold just a few strands of hair no matter how short:

Children's boutique stores usually carry the teeny tiny ones.

Oh my gosh, those little flowers are beautiful! I didn't even know you could do that with felt!

I love the owls. I have never tried working with felt, even though I love hair clips made with them. I stick with ribbon, I can make cute ribbon sculptures, but cannot make a bow to save my life.

I was getting into making felt play food for a while. It is a bit less practical but very aesthetically amusing

Zsuzsanna was making some great felt food for a while, and posted links to patterns. If my kids were still toddlers I'd love to do it, it looks great and there are heaps of different patterns.

To the OP - your creations are gorgeous.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
