Felt Hair Pretties

Last week, I announced a sweet doll sweater vest I designed for the Petite Purls Spring Issue, but I haven’t told you about what I created for my craft column–which, yay!, now has an official title: Get Crafty with Flax & Twine. I worked up these charming felt hair pretties for Allie done three different ways. I created a soft headband, a hard headband and a barrette version.
You’ll find a template with the animal and car designs, as well as full diy instructions provided on the Petite Purls site. This spring issue has many beautiful knits to consider adding to your list, as well.
So, which is your favorite? I am a tad partial to the purple elephant.
Though the little lazy daisy on the VW is pretty darn cute. I provide instructions for the flower, too, so don’t hesitate to try it!
Loving the whale, which would be adorable with a little striped sailor dress, don’t you think?
These lovely hair accessories are perfect for the summer. Also, don’t forget that the templates can be blown up and used for to lots of things, appliqué it on a twirly skirt for extra kick, to your summer beach tote, to a gift bag, or cut it out of fun paper and add it to a summer moleskine sketchbook. Or transfer it and embroider them on. Go check out Petite Purls and give it a whirl!
