I’m sure I’m not the only one finding hairclips everywhere but in their own place…! I decided to sew a neat little hairclip case where all kinds of hairclip can be stored.
All of my supplies come from Creavea. They sponsored me in return for this tutorial (fabrics, ribbon, and interfacing were provided free of charge). They deliver in Europe too. Other tutorials are available on the website
Let’s start! That’s a rather easy tutorial, only rectangles to be cut!
From the outside fabric: 2 rectangles, 25cmx5.5cm each
From fusible fleece: 1 rectangle, 23cmx12cm
From ribbon: cut 2 pieces, 20cm-long each
Seam allowances are included and are 1cm throughout.
Fuse the interfacing on the wrong side of each piece, positioning each piece at 1cm from the edge.
Fold the small rectangles in half lengthwise, with right sides together then sew along the long edge.
Turn them on the right side and place the crease on the middle. Press well.
You can topstitch.
On the right side of the inner fabric, place your ribbons and rectangles. Ribbons should be placed at the middle whereas the rectangles should sit about 4cm from the edges.
Baste in place.
With right sides together, sew your case together leaving a 7cm-opening.
Turn the case on the right side and press well.
Now, you can have all of the hairclips neatly put into the case
