I totally can't do any kind of clothing project for my girls without making matching hair clips. So when I worked on lengthening their dresses recently, I of course had to put the fabric scraps left over to good use.
First I tried to make a fabric daffodil, as shown in the first tutorial here, at Crafti Staci. Can you say FAIL?!?!?!?!?! Mine totally didn't turn out good, unless I was trying to make a wilted, lopsided daffodil. If that was the case, then I totally nailed it! Unfortunately, that wasn't the case.
It took a lot of time and turned out horrible.
I had already cut all of my left over scraps into 4" squares to make the flowers above. I guess I suffer from a horrible case of over-confidence. After all, the tutorial didn't look too difficult. I'm sure the tutorial isn't the problem here. =)
Anyway, my options were now limited to the fact that I was running out of time and the fact that I only had 4" squares and a couple of long strips left. So I decided to go way easy, pinked the edges of 4 of the squares and made accordion bows.
I glued these down onto ribbon-lined hair clips. They took a total of about 2 minutes. And that, my friends, is a total WIN!!!
Have you had any fails lately?
