Happy St. Patrick's Day, lassies! Is your doll wearing green? I hope so! If not here's a fun way to add some green to her outfit today!
I'm going to show you how to make a shamrock hairclip! These are so easy and fun, and cute too!
Let's get started!
First you will need some supplies:
- Light or Dark green felt
- A marker
- Sewing Needle
- Green thread
- Small hairclips or bobby pins
- Glue dots, hot glue, or regular glue (whichever you have on hand)
- And a parent/guardian to help you!
After you have all your supplies, begin by drawing three M's on the edge of your felt. They need to be about a a half inch tall.
Cut the M's out (they don't have to be perfect) and get your needle and thread ready!
Take one of the M's (which is going to be a shamrock leaf), and bring your needle UP through the fabric. Fold it slightly and then bring it through again, like a weave.
Pull it through and continue with another shamrock leaf until it looks like the picture above. :)
After you have all three together, pull the thread from each side tight to draw the leaves together to form a shamrock and knot at the back to secure.
You're almost done!!
Yay you've made a lucky shamrock! Now it's time to glue it on a hairclip so your doll can wear it!
Nellie loves her new hairclip!
Happy St. Patty's Day to all of you! If you make a hairclip, I'd love to see! Feel free to send me a picture at firstname.lastname@example.org
Watch out for a pot o' gold today! Have fun! :)
