fabric flower hairclips

I put this off for so long. I have wanted to make my own hairclips for awhile, but I didn't want to "copy" anyone else's. I see things I like, and my brain starts to think "I could do that! All I have to do is..."

So here we are. I saw clips like these a few months ago, and I went home and made a few. Then, I found a collection of fabrics that would be perfect for these hairclips- so I bought it and made 35 of them. Then I felt guilty for copying the other girls clips, so I kept them to myself. A few weeks ago, I showed them to some of my friends that have little girls (or will have them soon) and they told me they liked my version better. So- I stopped feeling so guilty.

And as they say, "Imitation is the best form of flattery." (right?)

These are from the first set that I made.

Here are a few of the second batch I did. I changed them a little, don't know if you can tell from the photo but they are "fluffier". And I added some tulle.

These are a few from my latest batch. They are from a fabric collection called "Everything but the Kitchen Sink" I love them!
