Sew Grateful week – flower hair clip tutorial


These flower hair grips look so pretty and are great for using up scraps. They sell well at craft fairs too – I like to sit behind my stall and make them!

image You will need-

Pinking shears, needle and thread

5 circles of printed fabric, and 1 of felt, with pinked edges


Hair clip with sewing holes

My circles are 5m across (I use a small cookie cutter, and draw round the inside) and the hair clips are 4cm long.

Fold each petal in half, then in half again. Sew to the centre of the felt, keeping all the petals facing the same way.

Sew on the button and the clip.


You’re done!

I made this flower to go with a dress for my baby niece. The pattern is Simplicity 9784.
