Do you have a small piece of beadwork on your beading table that you are dying to use in a project, but can't seem to find the right way to use it? It is too small for a barrette and too large to become an earring. So, what can you do with it?
You can make it into a beaded hair clip, and this tutorial will show you how.
This 4-page, full-color photo tutorial will take you step-by-step through the process I use to turn a piece of beadwork into a piece of wearable art. It is easy to follow and I know you will love making lots and lots of these hair clips. They make great accessories and even better gifts.
On the pattern pages, I have provided you with:
Step-by-step instructions using color photographs to guide you through the process of turning a finished piece of beadwork into a beaded hair clip

Thanks for "bouncing in" to my little corner of the world. I promise, it will be worth the effort. My given name is Beth Rudy, but my native name is "Bouncing Wolf". This was inspired by my love of a certain orange and black Disney character, and my 5-year-old golden-lab of the same name -- Tigger. We both have a very hard time keeping our feet on the ground when we get excited.
And nothing excites me more than a new creative idea. Many times, my creative mind moves faster than my hands can ever keep up with.
Rest assured that all of my patterns have been fully tested by me! I don't use a bead fairy. Each pattern is shown with a photo of the finished piece that I have beaded from the pattern.
So, check back often for new patterns. When my creative muse strikes, watch out!!!
Thanks for shopping with me.
