These Barrettes are easy to make and look really cute. Make several in different color combinations! Any little girl would love to receive one (or two!) to match her favorite outfit. I made these for my Granddaughter, Layla.

Step 2: Cut Felt Squares

For each barrette, cut 2 squares of felt, (3") out of contrasting colors. Felt is very inexpensive and does not unravel, so it is perfect for this project.

Step 3: Make Cuts at the Corners
