Lola's Best and Favourite Hair Clips Tutorial

















This weekend we're attending the 4th birthday party of Satchel's friend, R. It's a Charlie & Lola party because it is absolutely completely her favorite show. So I made Miss R a set of Lola's hair clips!

Tutorial below! *and please take a moment to nominate the clips for "Favorite Handmade Goodies for Kids in the 2010 Kiddie Olympics" - Voting begins next month!

We also bought her these super funky pop-beads! They're phthalate-free and way cool, in lush, earthy colors like chocolate, mango, and kiwi. Artistically crafted in wonderful shapes like raspberries and urchin shells. S'wonderful!

Hi! I animated on Charlie and Lola series 1 and 3, and just wanted to say how lovely these are! And the little ceramic Lola too. Keep up the good work!

You are my favourite and my best!

These are so cute! I'm wondering if I can talk my almost 8 year old into wearing them of if she's "too old." Maybe I'll just wear them. :)
