emily barrette

Emily really wanted a heart barrette so I made one of these for her.  My stitches need a lot of work but I thought it turned out decent.  I stuffed it with little bits of the felt that were left over so it would be a little puffy.  





I'm going to keep working on it until I  can get my stitches perfect.

I love it! And for what it's worth, I think it looks fine, it's not so imperfect as to be distracting, or look messy, and the little bit imperfect it is is what makes it look like it was made with love, not by some giant machine in a factory!

I really like it babe. I wouldn't dog it at all. I think you did a great job!

My question is how well does it hold hair with the felt on it too?

actually pretty good but i usually use the larger barrettes like the one this is attached to. i have read that you could put a small strip of clear silicone based glue on them to keep them slip free but i haven't tried it yet.

Cub scout neckerchief slides are notorious for, well, sliding. They fall off and get lost daily! We use a glob of plain old aquarium sealant on the inside! It ads some grip so it doesn't slide off so easily. I wonder if you couldn't do the same with the barrettes, put a few small dots of aquarium sealant (which is probably cheaper than silicon craft glue) on the inside where it grips the hair?
