Another Copycat Craft



I've been making these little clips for my daughter's wild, wild bangs. I haven't been able to find store bought clip/barrettes that will actually stay in her super-duper-fine hair. So, I made my own.

The idea is not uniquely mine, of course. I saw something similar on a small tyke wandering about the city and withheld myself from wrenching it off her head to inspect its construction. Thank gosh for impulse control. It's not good to be a stranger acting strangely, eh??

The clips are a fun and instant gratification project.... A quick and mindless construction, good for hours in front of the television or sitting outdoors sweating while the kiddo plays. They are easy enough to replace when lost....or, uh...covered in worm gunk or mud. (did you see her fingers in that picture??)

P.S. Thanks for the baby-making well wishes. I've enjoyed the cheerleading and even the "i knew its." :)

I saw a tutorial to make these on some blog not so long ago. I didn't save it so I may never find it again. I think they are really cute. Kenzie wears them well!

Hope you are feeling great.

Heidi is right. You can get away with a lot right now cuz you can blame it on being preggers. Use it while you can!

These are adorable. Love your coloring pages idea, too.

Cheers! LA

So sweet! I think I'll see if I can figure out how to make some and put them in my nieces stockings for Christmas. Thanks!
