Tutorial - Here is something you can create for little girls.....

Here is an idea I absolutely love from this current SU Catalog (Sping/Summer 2009). What am I talking about....well take a peek at page #65.

Our little Miriam loves *Hair-Clips* and when I saw the little Snap Barrettes at the Craft Store I thought of the project I have seen in the Catalog and I knew they would turn out great!!!

Here is what you will need to create the little *Hair-Clips*:

For my little project I used both the SU Fleurettes plus my sweet friend Sabrina Jackson was so nice to sent me some of her fabulous handmade crochet flowers!!! Thank you Sabrina - I love them!!!

These are the SU Fleurettes - there are 12 flowers in a package:These are the handmade flowers from my friend Sabrina: You layer the flowers as you like - I added a larger and a smaller one, plus added the clear Rhinestone in the center:
Sabrina's flowers are also in different sizes - I added a purple Rhinestone in the center: Next I removed the Barettes from the package:
I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch a hole on the rounded side closer to the snap:
Once the hole was punched I placed the Rhinestone with the flower into the opening and fastened it:
If you would use buttons instead of Rhinestones you would have to sew these thru the hole!!! That's why I opted for the Rhinestones, much fast process - LOL!!! These are the two SU flowers in different combo's: These four clips were done in less than 15 minutes:
I soooo wish I could show you how it looks on our little Miriam......but it was already late when I created this project and my sweet little Miriam was sleeping...that means I have to comeback and show you all how great they look!!!

I'll be gone in the morning so look out for a photo in the later afternoon!!!

Let me know what you think of this cute little project?!? ~TFL~

Dawn (flowergal36) said...

These are so fun Silke. They would be great for Easter. I have been trying to make these flowers but they are harder than they look. Super job..

Sabrina aka okimom2girlz said...

Hey girly, I was hoping you'd like those flowers. Glad you got them so quick. It only took 2 days to get to you, that is just fab. I have plenty more, so I'll send some more your way. My hubby actually thinks I am little nuts for making so many ;P. Men just don't know!
Hugs, Sabrina

Oh how adorable, Silke! And an easy project even I can get done within a matter of minutes. I've adorned these crocheted fleurettes and now will have to get a batch or make some. I would love to make these for my daughter! And would make great gifts too!

What a clever little project!

Jeanette - said...

Silke - these are adorable and Miriam looks so precious wearing hers!

Cathy said...

Those clips are adoreable. And Miriam sure looks special with the clip in her hair, and so cute. I love your blog, you cards are awesome. I have tried to make the flowers, but can't seem to find a good pattern to make them. Maybe your friend can share her pattern for the flowers. Would love to try them with a different pattern.

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
