Heart Hair Clip

Posted by  ·  February 10, 2009  ·  Last Updated: February 10, 2009

I am finding the crochet hearts quite addictive! I decided to move on from the heart garland and make a little hair clip.



Use size 5 crochet hook and embroidery floss (all six strands)

Basic Heart

Chain 4.  Make all of the next stitches in the first chain. 3 trc, 3 dc, chain 1, 1 trc, chain 1, 3 dc, 3 trc, chain 2, slip stitch in center, pull loop to back and fasten off.

I used Angry Chicken’s covered hair barrette tutorial.  After I sewed the two pieces of felt together I used embroidery thread to make some embellishments. I then stitched the heart to the top of the felt cover.

We are now ready for Valentine’s Day!


Looking for more wearable crafts give these safety pen bracelets a try.

    How will I ever get anything done now that I can crochet hearts in minutes!!!! I see lots of heart projects in the future. I've made tons of barrettes for my one and only granddaughter but she just pulls them out of her hair!!! she'll come around one day and she will have millions to choose from. these hearts are so cute and simple to make and I haven't crocheted in years!!!

    So cute, I just made something similar using your heart tutorial. I did the first round for the heart using yarn and attached it to a barrett. I just posted it on my blog. :)

    That is so adorable. I really need to make some of those felt covered barrettes. It's been on my crafty to-do list for quite awhile.
