Fabric Hair Clip

It was well past the time for a new Instructable in the world of DIY Glam, so whilst in NY I made a hair clip to go with an outfit for a party that eve and an instructable to go with it.

Matching Accessories-Fabric hair clip
Fabric hair clip/brooch - to match and finish off an outfit.Best applied using fabric with some sort of print or motif where the edges of the print or shape are defined eg flowers can be turned 3-D, embellished and sewn to a basic clip, comb or brooch clasp for a matching dress accessory. I used leaves fashioned from a strip of excess seam allowance fabric, from the inside of a vintage dress that I took in to make It fit me.The fancy hair clip with added bug brooch* finished off the outfit.(*old brooch was cleaned and I replaced the missing stones on its body first, before fixing in place)
