and really, nothing says "I'm looking suave" more than an egg or two on the side of your head.

2) Stop sewing leaving about 2 cm of room.
3) Fill egg white with some fluff, for a little volume.
4) Whipstitch egg closed.

Step 5: Assembling Clip


HAIR ACCESSORY*

1) Apply some hot glue to the hair barrette or pin.
2) Stick the egg on. 

*I found that hair accessories look nicer and more realistic when the egg white isn't stuffed.

PIN**

1) Attach safety pins to the back of the egg. 

**Pins look swankier when egg whites are stuffed.

    I made these out of felt and they turned out so cute. I'm trying to make a bacon design to go with them. :3

    Thank you. :D

     I think you might need some bacon barrettes to go along with the egg!

    How cute. :D
