To make yourself a simple hair clip/slide this winter which can be as simple or as fancy as you like, just follow these simple insruction.
1 Cut a feather shape in felt, either from millinery felt [ available from Baxter hart and abraham in Luton. ] or from craft felt which you can buy from most craft shops.
2 Cut a piece of wire the same length as your feather shape
3 Decide how many cuts you want into your feather towards the center but be careful not to cut too far.
4 Sew your wire along the center BACK this will give your feather support and allow you to give it shape.
5 Now you can trim your feather with sequins, bottons, beads, glitter etc.
6 Using the same technique make some leaves too
6 Add to a hair clip or hair slide use a strong glue like uhu. Why not make a few and arrange in a cluster like this?
This is a great way to decorate a simple felt cloche, and works on the humble beret too!
