FREE PATTERN: Crochet Hair Flower No-Slip Clips

PATTERN NOTES: I have a new photo tutorial for you Do-It-Yourselfers out there. These crochet flower hair clips are a great stash buster! And I'm posting with just enough time to make a few before Christmas, if you would like to make these for a stocking-stuffer or gift. Now, I want you all to know that if you love the look of these hair clips and don’t *want* to do them yourself, I can make some for you.  Just send me a request at my email:  
As always, if you make these for others, please refer them to my blog to help me continue to receive traffic.  The traffic I receive to my blog helps me put out more posts and tutorials and crochet patterns!

Fasten off. Leave about a 1 inch (3 cm) tail.
RIBBON COVERED NO-SLIP CLIPS: (supplies needed: glue gun and sticks, ribbon, double prong clips, scissors, lighter)
Pre-heat glue gun to warm up glue sticks.
Cut Ribbon to 4.5 inches (11.5 cm). Check the ribbon’s fit on the double prong clips, to ensure good coverage.
Carefully use a lighter to gently burn and seal edges of ribbon to prevent fraying.

Using pictures for guidance, apply hot glue using glue gun to inside of upper level of the double prong clips.  Carefully attach ribbon.  Next, apply glue to top of upper level of double prong clips. Attach ribbon. Last, apply glue to outside of bottom level of clip, without getting glue onto the prongs.  Allow glue to cool.

To add no-slip portion: While holding clip open, apply a squiggle of glue to inside of upper level of the double prong clip (portion covered in ribbon). Hold clip open while glue dries.

Use hot glue to securely attach button to front of crochet flower.

Apply hot glue to outside of upper level of double prong clip (portion covered in fabric).  Hide loose ends of crochet flower in between clip and flower.
