I looked everywhere for cute barrettes for my sweet baby girl, India. I simply couldn't find them, though! So, in typical fashion, I decided to make some myself. I thought of a lot of different materials I could use - ribbon, Shrinky-Dinks, fabric...but in the end I decided to go with felt for a few reasons:
- Felt is easy to work with
- Felt is cute and has a timeless quality to it
- I had a ton of felt
Probably the fact that I had it on hand was the biggest determining factor, since I have a personal goal to use all of my art supplies (impossible, but I think I love impossible goals).
So, anyway, these adorable barrettes were born, and there will be many more to follow. In fact, I've received a few requests (orders?) for them, so I will be adding a tutorial sometime during the holiday season.
