How to Make Cute Felt Peeps

Natalie and I love making hair accessories for her ballet class. I have made some super cute bun nets in the past, but I didn't have that kind of time before Easter! So instead, we decided on some kind of clips and thought these Peeps bunnies would be super cute.

We spent some time before dance on Friday making them and they were so much fun, pretty fast and easy, and the girls all loved them when she handed them out at ballet that night. We remembered to take some photos along the way so we could share the how-to here with you.

This is a great project to do with kids. Natalie did the tracing and cutting, I did the sewing, we tag teamed the gluing. 

Without further ado, here is the free pattern and instructions! Just click and save, then print.

The key to making the hair clips secure is that felt rectangle hot glued over the inside of the clip! You won't have detaching clips if you do it this way. I'd do the same thing if attaching a safety pin or anything else to the back instead. 

Natalie put the clips in an Easter basket to deliver them! Such a fun little project. If you make some, I'd love to see :)
