    What lovely clips, and such a nicely-done tutorial. Thanks for sharing…we’ll definitely be adding these to our to-do list (which is no guarantee that they’ll ever get done, but a girl can hope, eh?)

    So cute….I have bought a few for my daughter and thought about making some myself seeing how easy they are I am now going to have to try.

    What a cute idea, I’m cutting my hair soon (donating to Locks of Love) and I’m sure I will need clips as it grows out again.

    Oh no, the link for the bow isn’t working, perhaps the site moved? Oh well, great clips, fun project, love it! And last but certainly not least, Thank you!

    This is such a fun project! I really enjoyed learning about making hair clips! This post has given me so many ideas. I love all hair clips that you created.

    great clips, try our website for a differnt range of beautiful baby hair clips

    just curious… does the self-adhesive ribbon hold up to wear? or does it peel off? i’m going to run down the fabric fusion glue. the hot glue gun i have isn’t working at all… i have to put GLOBS of glue on to get it to hold……… and then it looks like a wreck! 😦 clearly, i’m an idiot. this seems to be soooo easy for others. maybe the glue stick i bought for the glue gun are crummy? is there a foolproof brand of hot glue?

    cute cute cute clips by the way!! 🙂 bookmarking this site! thank you!!!

  21. 21 Shannon O'Reilly August 17, 2009 at 3:06 am

    Thank you so much, I have begun creation and my daughter just loves to help with these, (which also means she will allow me to put them on her!).

  22. 22 Angela September 4, 2009 at 5:33 am

    Great tutorial I was spending 7 and 8 dollars a pr for these clips and now I can make them myself and make them to match every dress I make! Awesome thanks soooooo much!!!!

  23. 23 Leanne October 13, 2009 at 8:37 pm

    Thanks for the great tutuorial. I use a glue gun and love it. Also…a trade secret is to add a thin strip of adhesive velcro (the pokey side) to the inside center of the clip. This makes it NOT slip out of fine hair!

  24. 24 kerry January 7, 2010 at 8:48 am

    Oh, my little girl just got her first hair clip for Christmas. It will be so fun to make more for her. Thanks for the tutorial. I ended up at your blog via my friend Sarah’s (Minnesota Madre).

    Can you tell me where to purchase mini alligator clips? I am looking for the smaller size for babies. Smaller than the standard 1.75″.

  26. 26 Rita February 8, 2010 at 10:13 pm

    I loved this idea and your easy tutorial, I made a couple of them for my little girl. They turned out super cute. Thanks.

  27. 27 Mrs. Doodle February 13, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    I have a friend that makes these and puts a velvet ribbon on the bottom inside to hold it in the hair better. She made my daughter some and it does seem to help them not to slip out so easily. Great tutorial too:) BTW go to Heather Bailey’s website she has some ribbon that is sooooo cute and not that expensive.

    These baby hair clips are gorgeous! I’m inspired to experiment more with alligator clips! Bookmarking this site. Thank you.

    Hi all, so I tried making the alligator clips last night. Using the self adhesive ribbon is definitely the easier option :)! I also used the hot glue method for wrapping the baby hair clip in grosgrain ribon but it didn’t have the same neat finish as the self adhesive ribbon. Thanks again for the tips. x

  40. 41 Elainer April 21, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    New to Pintrest and love everything so far.

  41. 42 Pandy September 1, 2012 at 2:33 pm
