Making anything for the 4th of July?

Decided I'd better get an early start, so I found this pattern by Myra Mahy in one of my old painting books, cut it out and have been working on getting it painted the last couple of days. I'm not a very good photographer, so the pic is not too good. You can click on the pic to enlarge it. Luvs

That is so cute Luvs. I love the buttons! Not sure if I'm making anything new this year, I've got so much stuff as it is.

RE: Jenni's Hair Clips

Jenni,
Your hair clips are adorable. Luvs, I better get over to the painting form and see if you got your project finished. I always enjoy seeing what you do.

I love your clips! I have been working on some lately for my grandaughter using the snap type metal clips. What material do you use? How do you get the scalloped edge? Glue or sew? Any tips you could pass on would be appreciated, especially on how you finish off the inside (what fabric works best)

Vicki I cut the shapes with a die cut. It is two pieces that I then glue together along the edges and slip the clip in.
I start with two layers of fabric that I fuse together with fusible webbing.
I cut out my shapes, and seal all the edges so they won't fray.
I had got some snapclip covers from a seller on ebay and wanted to make my own using fabric so I bought the die cut.

All these things are making me feel very patriotic. Jenni, those clips are adorable. About as cute as the Croc-a-doodle-doo-dads! I love your stuff.

Note to self- dig out and wear red/white/blue this weekend!
