I am what I've come to call a gluer. I love my glue gun! I end up with spider webs of that stuff everywhere. Other people must be gluers, too. How often do you see bow/clippie tutorials that say "No-sew..." Glue is fast, easy, and has immediate results. Here are some of my girls' clips:
They look like I slaved over them, fashioning the little ribbons into bears, elephants, lions, giraffes, and butterflies, adding beads, etc, and sewing everything in place, right? Oh, no. I bought them at the store and glued them onto ribbon-lined clips!
Flowers and buttons from the craft store, glued in layers onto ribbon-lined clips.
So imagine my surprise when my neighbor and friend, Brooke, came over Monday night for a hair-clip-making party and said, "I need to show you how to make these adorable bows! And they're no-glue, just sew!" I felt like covering my poor glue-gun's ears. No glue? What is this craziness? Then, in five minutes tops, she showed me how to make these beauties:
So maybe I'm now a gluer and/or sewer when it comes to hair clips. Just don't tell my glue gun. What about you? Are you a gluer or a sewer?
