Knitting Sewing

back to school hair clips

My girl likes to accessorize, so not only did she want her backpack and her clothes to match, but she needed some matching hair clips.  Before I left for S. Africa I made some knitted blue flower hair clips (inspired by my friend, Britt).  They were super fast and she loved them.

Upon my return we decided she needed some butterfly clips.  Yes, needed.  I tried knitting some, but they were unrecognizable as butterflies.  Both my husband and my daughter confirmed that suspicion for me.  After two sewing outtakes I was finally pleased with the third result.  I knitted a 3/4 inch i-cord and then did what I call messy sewing with some frayed edges.

I have one more set of clips that need some spicing up.  I wonder, will it be dragonflies, bees, more flowers.  Hmmm… Any suggestions?

Linking up with Jennifer@Studio JRU for Sneak Peek Friday.  Lots of creativity going on over there.  You should check it out!
