Follow along as Laura from Love From Lola shows us how to turn two buttons into an adorable hair clip!
This hair clip looks lovely with Laura's new Spanish Dancer dress, but will also compliment a variety of other outfits!
Let's get started...
You will need:
- A scrap of paper
- Scrap of fabric at least 5 x 5 inches
- Two different sized buttons
- Needle and thread
To start you will need to cut a circle out of your paper to make a pattern piece. Start by folding your paper into quarters. Fold the bottom edge to the top, then fold the left side over to the right.
Using a ruler mark 2 inches from the folded point. Pivot the ruler from this center point marking 2 inches every so often. Connect the marks making a quarter of a circle.
Cut along the line. Unfold. You should now have a circle. Using this as your pattern piece, cut a circle out of fabric.
Using a needle and thread baste around the edge of the circle.
Pull the threads to gather the edge to the center. Pull the threads snug, forming a
tight gathered center. Tie the two threads together to secure in place.
Using two varying sizes of buttons sew them to the center of the flower.
I used a 1 inch button and a ½ inch button.
Slide a bobby pin through the stitches on the back.
Try on your favorite doll!
Experiment with different sized circles and different fabrics for a variety of looks.
Pictured below is a flower made with the original circle and a smaller 1 ½ inch circle.
Cut out the desired fabrics and gather the edges of both circles to the center. Stack the smaller circle on top of the larger circle. Sew buttons to the center stitching through both circles. Add your bobby pin and try on your favorite doll!
