I got an email from one of our readers requesting a tutorial on a clip with Velcro closures.
These are perfect for babies!
Making these clips is easy as pie.
I used 3/8″ Solid Grosgrain Ribbon for the “clip” part.
Mine measures about 2 1/4″.
Fold your ribbon piece in half.
I ironed a crease in the ribbon, but this isn’t absolutely necessary.
Now you will cut out your Velcro.
I just measured by eye how much I needed to cut.
I used 7/8″ velcro and cut it down to fit the 3/8″ ribbon.
Next you will hot glue the velcro onto your ribbon.
This is where the H-185 High Temp Glue Gun would come in handy.
I really need to get one! 🙂
Since the area you are gluing is so small, you can put the glue on most of it and then adhere it to the ribbon. Then I went back and put a little glue on the ends of the velcro and made sure that it won’t come off when you open the clip.
Next you will glue on your bow.
I made a sweet Little Bow.
I love these little closures!
It’s so sweet, especially for those babies with lots of hair!
(Don’t tell my little guy he’s wearing a bow! He has no idea! :))
I am sure these would look even sweeter on a little girl! 🙂
