DIY Chick Hair Clip

I didn't take step by step photos for this one as I didn't think it was needed, if you have any questions feel free to ask!

Using this template (below), cut out two chicks from your favorite yellow felt.  With orange and brown embroidery floss, give your chick a beak and eyes with a satin stitch.  Attach a little flower or bow to the top to cutesie it up. 

Put the back chick felt on and run a yellow running stitch around the outside to tack it all together.  You can attach to a headband or clip of choice.  I cut a small slit in the back felt and poked part of a snap clip through, then sandwiched the top of the clip between the chicks before I closed it up.  What ever is easier for you.
