Heart clips for the little girls you love.
For this project you will need the following supplies:
1. Small scraps of material in a variety of colors and prints ( 5 inch squares will be plenty big)
2. Red, pink, purple, and gray felt
3. Heat ‘n’ Bond
4. Metal hair clips. I like using the 30mm rectangle, metal snap clip, but any metal snap clip will do.
4. E600 industrial strength glue (or any glue that will adhere to metal)
5. Buttons, thread, ribbon, etc. . . just an assortment of items to decorate the clips.
Take your scraps of cotton material and iron squares of Heat ‘n’ Bond to the wrong side of the fabric. I really do recommend Heat ‘n’ Bond over other iron-on adhesives. I’ve tried other brands and they just don’t work as well (Pellon brand is particularly hard to work with).
Next, fold the felt in half and cut a half heart shape on the fold (just like you learned in kindergarten). I used my pinking sheers because it made the heart look like a traditional heart doily. Make sure that the felt heart you cut out is big enough to cover the snap clips you are using.
Choose one of the coordinating material squares (the ones you ironed the heat ‘n’ bond to) and cut a slightly smaller heart out. Lay is on top of the felt heart and see if it fits nicely on the larger heart.
Peel the paper off the back of the smaller fabric hearts. It should come off easily. If it wants to stick just iron it a bit more. Lay the rest of the hearts out on the ironing board and iron them onto the felt hearts, following the instructions on the Heat ‘n’ Bond package.
