Fabric Clips

What can you do to make clips fun to work with?


BORING!


Add fabric scraps.
Our answer to everything!

This is a super easy way to add pizazz to plain clips.

Supplies:
Clips
Fabric scraps
Mod Podge
Scrap paper
Paint brush
Scissors or Rotary cutter


1.  Make template out of paper.  Trace clip onto paper.



2.  Cut fabric out of template.  Make sure to clip stray threads.


3.  Paint Mod Podge onto one side of Clip.  Start by placing edge of fabric with round part of clip.  Keep applying Mod Podge and fabric.  Rub fabric to get out any air bubbles.


4.  Hang clips to dry.  Apply another coate of Mod Podge.  This will also stop fraying of fabric.


5.  Now get to work and have FUN.


I use my clips on my hat hoop.



How will you use your clips?

Doing nothing is very hard to do...you never know when you're finished.
