Stash-busting #3 - Hair clips.


Jeg har en pose der jeg samler garnrester som har blitt til overs fra strikke- og hekleprosjekter. Mange av nøstene er små, og farger og garnkvaliteter er jo litt ymse, så det er ikke helt enkelt å finne på noe å bruke de til.


I have a bag where I collect those small bits of yarn that are left over from crochet and knit projects. Those scraps are of a variety of yarn qualities, many are just small bits, and it's not so easy to find something to spend them on.


Jeg har hatt et par udekorerte hårspenner liggende blandt hobbysakene mine. Opprinnelig hadde jeg tenkt å dekorere de med perler, men kom på at jeg heller kunne lage heklet hårpynt av garnrester.


In my crafts stash I have had a couple of undecorated hair clips stored away. Originally my plan was to make beaded decorations for them, but I came to think that I could crochet decorations from my scrap bits of yarn.


Jeg heklet en sløyfe og en blomst og sydde spennene fast til dem.
Oppskriften til sløyfen fant jeg her, men jeg har laget min større og har pyntet med en knapp fra knappelageret mitt.

I crocheted a bow and a flower and sewed the hair clips on to them.
The pattern for the bow was found here, but my bow is a little bit bigger and is decorated with a button from my button stash.

15 gram garn gikk med til hårpynten, og til dette lille prosjektet fikk jeg brukt opp tre små restenøster med rosa garn og ett med grønt.
Dette var et morsomt lite prosjekt og jeg synes begge spennene ble ganske fine :)


This little project took 15 grams of yarn, and from my little bag of scrap yarn I spent three bits of pink yarn and one of green.
These crochet hair clips were fun to make, and I think they turned out nice :)

Lovely but I have short hair so have no need. Don't know whether that is you or your daughter but love the hair colour. Red also runs in our family.
