When I was little my mom use to make me curly ribbon (korker) hair clips.  I had them in all sorts of color combos and wore them all the time.  They touched my childhood.  I now have a niece who is almost 2.  She hates having her hair done.  The slightest touch makes her say "ow".  Silly girl.  To help out her mom, who isn't great with dealing with hair, I made her some curly ribbon hair clips that are easy to put in and soft in her hair.



They are so easy to make.  And somewhat addicting, as well.  Once I made up a few colors of curly ribbon, I wanted to do all colors!  I pretty much did, too.  Each is on a metal aligator clip that I glued fabric ribbon on so it would be soft in her hair.

Here are a few of the colors schemes I've done so far:

Those are adorable.  I love the color combinations.
I've always loved the look of corker bows.  <sigh> unfortunatly I only had stinky boys, no girls.  I don't think my husband would have appreciated me putting hair bows in their hair.  My one niece doesn't seem to like hair assessories and her hair is really short and fine, so I'm not sure the darn things would stay in anyway.  I might need to make some anyway.

My other niece has really fine short hair as well.  I'm going to alter some kid's headbands to fit her head (she is 6 months old) and then her mom can just clip them onto the headband for now.  This way she can use them now on a headband and then later when she grows enough hair to clip them in.
