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!
