Felt Flower Hair Accessories

I have been wanting to make felt hair accessories for a very long time now.  It was actually one of the first things I wanted to do when I started this blog, but other projects kept getting in the way.  When I decided to open up my Etsy shop and start selling at craft fairs I thought this would be the perfect thing to make.  They are small and simple so I could make a bunch at a time and they are easy to take with me to craft fairs. 

I did make another hair clip a few months ago but I wanted to try something completely new.  I looked all over the internet for flower patterns I liked but couldn't really find just the right thing.  I ended up taking things I liked from a few different tutorials and coming up with my own idea. 

I love making these!  They are so easy and it only takes about 15 minutes to make one.  It makes me feel really accomplished.  :-)  I can't wait to try different sizes and flower shapes next. 

Okay, enough talking about them.  Let's see them!

These are the clips I made.

and these are the ponytail holders I made.
