Ever wonder what else you can do with all of the feltie embroidery designs that you have collected over time? Maybe you want to save some money and not buy anymore designs. We started a series of ITH embroidery tutorials just for that! If you’ve missed our first post check it out here.
In this tutorial we’ll show you step-by-step on how to take one of our own feltie designs and attach it to a bobby pin. It’s very easy and takes no time at all!
So lets gather our supplies…
There are some very basic tools and items that you’ll need in order to create your bobby pin so lets go over the list:
- We are going to need a feltie stitched out and ready and we’ll be using our fox feltie embroidery design.
- A Bobby pin and we recommend using Goody Colour http://amzn.to/1BV1IpL
- Sharp scissors or a cutting pen such as these curved craft scissors http://amzn.to/1sronrQ
So lets get started…
Preparing The Stitched Out Feltie Embroidery Design
After you have stitched out a feltie design that you would want to turn into a bobby pin feltie make a small slit on the back of it. Use either sharp scissors or cutting pen to do this. Be sure to only make the slit on the backing otherwise you’ll end up cutting through to the front of the feltie.
Make a slit close to the size shown in the picture to the left.
Make a second cut on the opposite side of the feltie and insert the bobby pin’s rigid side through and out of it.
Does Yours Look Like This?
This is how your feltie should look like in the end!
Your bobby pin feltie is complete!
It’s all done! That wasn’t too difficult was it? There are so many other things you can do with felties and we plan on continuing with our ITH embroidery tutorials.
