Project Hairclip - DIY Felt Cover for Snap Clip

Ok, came back and felt inspired (or rather stressed) enough to do a quick felt cover for a snap clip and I documented it! Ya, I feel like a pro now, even though my handiworks probably beg to differ!



Materials


Felt
1 Snap clip
thread and needle
+ 1 marker and a pair of scissors


Method



1. I started off by cutting 2 pieces of felt slight bigger than the clip. Mark an area about 3 mm away from the clip on the felt.






2. Trim the excess.





3. Place the clip on the felt and mark with 2 dots where the back prong begins.






4. Make a small snap about 3mm below the marking and slide the back prong through.






5. Centre the clip and snap tight.






6. Place the other piece of felt on top and using buttonhole stitches to stitch it together.







The final product!




Hope you will have as much fun as me making these!
