Hair slides

I'd wanted to make some hair accessories for a while and then came across the findings in our local craft shop. At first I'd thought about gluing gems, buttons and beads onto the metal frames (enough to cover them), but decided it would be nicer to sew them onto strips of velvet and then glue those on.

It took a while to work out how to stop the velvet from fraying (if you singe the end with a match for a couple of seconds it forms a plasticy end) and then also how to keep the beads from going out of line (you have to sew back through them all several times)...but ended up being really pleased with the result.
