Hair Bobble/Clips Organizer

Whilst browsing through various online Forums for some inspiration during the last few weeks, I kept seeing wonderful hair bobble/clips organizers sewn by a lot of ladies. We have at least 5 girls with hair clip chaos at home and the idea of making each one an organizer did not leave my mind at all.

Now, due to Little Miss Madam that takes up the most of my time during the day, I didn't find the time when I was motivated enough and didn't find the motivation when some time slot did pop up, to design my own organizer. So I asked in a forum for some ideas or where you can find some sewing pattern. The answers were very helpful and the examples they showed all very beautiful and individual. In the end, I opted for a freebook, made available by aprilkind (in german). Again, I was very lucky: great pattern, instructions really well written and comprehensible.

So I spent yet another hour in our local fabric store, trying to pick out patterns and discussing the possibilities with one of the owners of the store. She advised to be bold and mix patterns and colours, but as these are meant for quite particular little ladies, I was not brave enough and tried to keep it a bit toned down.

One of the ladies is celebrating her birthday tomorrow and my son has been invited. Next to the 'main' birthday present we bought already, I finally tool heart and printed out the sewing pattern and got to work. Here is the result of my very first hair bobble/clip organizer:

Clips can be clipped onto the froggy band, bobbles tucked into the pockets at the bottom.

I am still not that sure with the pattern mix, though my husband let a 'Awww, that's sweet...' drop when he saw it. Maybe I should really just go ahead with the advice of the store owner the next time I pick out some things - which will be when I finally use up my rations here at home beforehand ;-)
