Pinwheel Hair Clips

What little girl doesn't need more hair clips??
When I found the tutorial for these adorable pinwheel hair clips, I was all over it.
 The Mother Huddle does a great job of explaining all the steps and it was sooo easy to do.
In a nutshell, you cut out fabric squares and stick them on some Steam-a-Seam (double fusible web). First one side, let it cool, then the other. Trim the squares again (my little ones were about 2x2 and the big one was about 4x4). Then make four cuts in each one, twist, and tie down with a button or bead. Glue on some clippies and you're all done!

Want to know where I get some of my supplies? I found a great online supply store called the Hair Bow Center. After looking around, they seemed to have the best prices for clips and ribbons. They also sell some ribbon-lined clips for .43/ea (and the price goes down after buying only 5!). I bought some of those too and that's what I attached to the pinwheels. (I didn't have any patience once the pinwheels were made. I just had to be done!) I've ordered from the Hair Bow Center twice and both times, my supplies were shipped really fast with confirmation and shipping emails sent almost immediately. Just so ya know! :)

 If you make these hairclips, please be sure to link up your pics in my FLICKR Group! Thanks!
