Pinwheel Hair Clips -- great for summer!

When I saw this idea on The Mother Huddle, it was one of those "gotta make it now" projects.  But of course, I had to put my own twist on it.

My daughter is hard on hair clips - rips them out all the time, so just using heat n bond like the example, I knew she would destroy it.  Plus, I don't have heat n bond - just iron on interfacing (which is only fusible on one side).  So I had to stitch them together, but I actually like the look better - it's a bit more polished/finished.

Here's the close up of stitching it before I cut the slits in the corners.  I did 2" squares - perfect size for a small toddler with not much hair :)

...and disregard her messy hair - she went to bed with wet hair and my husband thought it would be funny to give her a faux hawk and let it dry that way over night.  I had a heck of a time getting it to even lay this flat...and the headband is the only thing keeping that front from spiking straight up.


  1. What a cute idea! I love the teal and orange together :) It looks like Emeree's hair is long enough for a little ponytail!

  2. this is darling! i'd love for you to come link it up at my party this friday at
