Craft #3:Easy Peasy Scrap Fabric Barrettes

I brought this last project to the family gathering! I’ll admit they are probably as easy as they come but pack a cute punch! And they include all my favorite things…

Scrap Fabric
Felt
Dollar store Clips
Dollar Store Crafting Floss!

No joke these probably cost like 15 cents each to make…if that!


First things first…

Cut out your three sections. Two Pieces of Felt and one piece of Fabric. These pieces are 1″ x 2″. Basically you want to cut the Felt and Fabric large enough to cover the Clip with extra room on all sides to allow for stitching.

Take one piece of Felt and cut a small slit large enough to slip your clip through.

Slide your clip through the slit and close the clip.

Now we will assemble the clip. Stack your fabric on top of your Felt and place it on top of your Clip that has already been inserted into your last piece of Felt.

And lastly we’ll Stitch a simple stick with Floss and tie it off to finish it! I love using bold colors that pop off the fabric!




Simple, fast and affordable! We sat for over an hour just talking and making these! It’s also the perfect project to occupy your time while you pretend to enjoy the Football game you’re stuck watching with your hubby! Don’t ask me how I know!

    How do you know Becca? How? (smiling devilishly!)

    These would be great for Chloe to do with her friends when they come over to play!

    Or for me to do instead of laundry. DID I JUST SAY THAT OUTLOUD? I meant, while the laundry is running.

    Super cute and very funky! I also like how the barrette is covered . . . I hate getting them snagged on a piece of hair. I linked to this on my weekly roundup too – thanks!
