Fabric Fan Tutorial

I actually had another different idea for a hair clip today.  However, my friend came over last night with some beautiful Kenyan fabrics and I swiftly changed plans.  She is doing a fundraiser to raise money for a mission trip to Kenya and wanted me to think of a simple project to sell.  Of course since this week is Hair Clip week, I had hair clips on my mind!

Let me show you how to make it.


1 button (on that preferably does not have holes on the top)
Piece of fabric that is about 1.5 inches wide and 24 inches long
Needle and thread
Hair Clip

1. Run your thread through your fabric about an inch from an edge (accordion style).
2. Pull thread to form fan. 
3. Sew the fan to the hair clip then sew a button to cover the bottom raw edge.
4. (step not shown) Glue between the fan and the hair clip and around the button to secure.

All done!

These are really pretty. I do love the African print fabric. You're on a roll with these hair clips. I wish your friend all the best!
