How To Make A Felt Strawberry Hairclips

Felt strawberry hairclips are the perfect fusion of sweetness and style for any hair accessory collection. These charming clips are meticulously crafted from soft and vibrant felt material, shaped into adorable strawberry designs that evoke a sense of nostalgia and playfulness.

Their rich red hues and intricate green leaf details make them an eye-catching addition to your locks. Whether worn individually or as a pair, these hairclips add a touch of whimsy to your hairstyle, perfect for summer picnics, garden parties, or simply brightening up your everyday look. With felt strawberry hairclips, you can effortlessly embrace a fun and fruity flair, ensuring that your hair is not just adorned but also a conversation starter wherever you go.


Materials Needed (for 2 small hairclips or 2 hair bands)

  • 2 small hairclips (or 2 elasticated bands)
  • 11 x 5cm (4 1/4 x 2in) woven felt in fuchsia
  • 3 x 7cm (1 1/8 x 2 3/4in) woven felt in purple
  • 18 seed beads in white
  • Sewing thread in fuchsia and white
  • Beading needle and sewing needle
  • Kapok stuffing (or cotton wool)
  • Fabric glue
  • Pencil
  • Thick tracing paper
  • Very fine-tipped water-soluble fabric pen
  • Paper scissors
  • Embroidery scissors
Creating Felt Strawberry Hairclips and Hair Bands

Start Making Felt Strawberry Hairclips

Step 1: Create Templates

Trace the strawberry and leaf motifs onto tracing paper and carefully cut them out. Cut the fuchsia felt into two equal-sized pieces. Place the strawberry template on the reverse of your felt and create two mirror images of the strawberry by tracing with a fabric pen.

Place the leaf template on the reverse of the purple felt and draw the outline. Cut out the three shapes using embroidery scissors.


Step 2: Decorate the Strawberry

Before sewing on the beads, determine where you will place the leaf at the top of the strawberry to avoid sewing on a bead underneath the leaf. Use a beading needle and white sewing thread to sew nine white seed beads onto one of the strawberries. Making felt strawberry hairclips is fun and they make a great gift.

Finish Making The Felt Strawberry Hairclips

Step 3: Assemble the Strawberry

Place the two strawberry parts together and sew around the edge with a blanket stitch using fuchsia thread. Just before finishing, stuff the strawberry with kapok stuffing. Ensure it looks firm and plump and doesn't flatten out when worn.

Complete the stitching. Glue the purple leaf to the top of the strawberry.


Step 4: Assembly

Sew the strawberry onto the center part of the hairclip. Alternatively, you can use extra-strong glue to attach the strawberry, but this may make it less robust.


Step 5: Large Hairclips

The number of strawberries you make will depend on the length of your hairclip. For an 8cm (3 1/8in) hairclip, you will need three large or four small strawberries.

Vary the colors of the strawberries and beads as you create them. A strawberry sewn to a decorative elastic band can be used to make a matching hair band.
