A cute accessory that costs next to nothing and only takes a couple of minutes to make? Yes please! Would you like to know how I make mine? Just click on Read more.
All I use is:
- 2-3 buttons. I prefer four-hole buttons, but have made hair clips with two-hole buttons as well;
- Coordinating or contrasting cotton;
- Hair clip with square-ish end;
I put buttons one on top of the other, matching the holes.
Thread the needle so there are two strands, tie the knot in the end and put the needle through one of the holes in the buttons.
I put the needle through another hole, diagonal to the original, and pull the thread until there is only a small 'tail' left with the knot on it.
I pull the needle between two strands of thread and pull.
Now my buttons won't move all over the place while I sew them to the hair clip.
Next, I line up the holes on buttons with slots on the hair clip.
Then I sew my buttons on the hair clip. Yeah, really that easy! There might be a little wiggling of the needle involved.
I also make sure that my thread crosses the top of the hair clip a few times while I sew the buttons on.
Almost done. I just need to tie a knot.
I tie it across all the strands of thread to pull them all together.
Hide the end, chop off excess thread.
Can you think of a quicker project? I cannot.
Now, why stop at just one?
