Aww! Thanks! I love wearing these around. You can't really see the pins so it just looks like buttons sewn into your hair Smiley

No problem! I know people have made them before but I think that extra step really makes them!

What? Wiggly side goes down?? Man..this might revolutionize my hairpin wearing forever!! Tongue

Very clever with the felt! Does the plastic surface of the buttons themselves hold the glue well enough?? I always have the problems with it snapping off, even when I use a proper glue. Huh

The felt gives the glue something to hold on to. Since the hairpin is so small the buttons can snap off really easy but the felt provides more gluing surface. I wear them a lot with a single casualty to date Smiley

Single casualty sounds good. Tongue (I was actually meaning, does the glue stick well to both the felt AND the button...I have had times when I try glue something with a plastic or metal surface, and while the glue holds to the other surface well, on the side of the plastic or metal, it just doesn't grip, and it pops off, leaving a perfect impression of the plastic or metal surface on it, lol. )

Oops I meant not a single casualty  Roll Eyes I used regular superglue and it sticks really well. You have to watch the wool and the superglue though because if you over apply it can get hot and start smoking  Tongue

Umm..I have wool felt, and superglue somewhere. Excuse me...I have a need to go see this in person. Tongue
