Strut Your Stuff Thursday with a Clippy Tutorial

Somewhat Simple Meets Blue Cricket Design!!!
Welcome to another week of creative links! But first, before we get started, I need to share with you a super fun, super simple, super cute idea from my super amazing SIL Becca (also known as the creator over at Blue Cricket.)
Becca and I have a long history! We were great friends in high school who started dating brothers. Both of us waited for 2 years while each of our guys served missions for the LDS church and then we both got married only 13 days apart in the Los Angeles Temple. 2 best friends who get to go to all the same family parties?! It doesn’t get much better than that!
She is now living in Utah and I am in Arizona, but that doesn’t keep us from being best of friends! We talk at least weekly on the phone and share creative ideas, blogging tips, and horrific mommy stories- just to keep each other sane!
When Becks and I do get together, we pick up right where we left off and the fun is non-stop! Here is the idea Becks brought to the “creative table” in Sacramento. 

Scrap Fabric and Felt Hair Clippies!(I love how simple these look and how simple they are to make!)  
Materials: All you need is some floss, needle, clippy barette, felt & scrap pieces of fabric. 

Directions: Cut 2 pieces of felt and 1 piece of fabric to the same size. Cut any shape you like- we went with rectangles to keep it simple, but I was thinking some stars or circles would be darling too!)Make a tiny slit into one piece of the felt for the clip to slid through.

Place the other piece of felt on top of the clip and then the fabric on top of that piece, like so:Start stitching around the entire perimeter of your felt and fabric.…and thats it!Here is my cute neice Macy modeling them:These were some of the ones we all made:
How fun is that?!?

Ok, and now to the link party- it is time to Strut Your Stuff!!!

(If you’re new here, every Thursday we get together to share our newest creations. It could be just about anything- A makeover, a project, artwork, a great recipe… I am not picky, just show me whatcha got!)

Just a couple of rules to make sure we are all playing fair:

1. Link to your specific post, not the main page of your blog.
2. Include a short description of your creation and the name of your blog.
3. Grab our party button or link to this party from your post so everyone can get in on the fun.
4. Please no links to etsy shops or online stores.
5. If your link is deleted, don’t stress, just re-read these rules and join in again!

    Hey I didn't know you know Becca from Blue Cricket Designs! I read both blogs and never put two and two together.

    I like the contrasting thread you used for the clippies, it really makes everything pop.

    Also, I'm out for this weeks Challenge, I have a double ear infection and a cold. No exercise going on here and as far as meals, well we're just trying to make it through Mommy being sick. Hopefully, I will be well enough to join in next week. I do have some points from before getting sick.

    These are adorable, can't wait to have a little girl so that I can make these types of fun things!

    Thanks for your comment also, I can't wait to be featured! :) Love your blog!

    Ahh! I see part of the Sacramento Temple grounds behind you!

    I will be going there in a couple weeks. It's nice to know there is someone in my neck of the woods.

    Thanks for the tutorial. Way cute clips.
