Free Crochet Pattern - Spring Blossoms Hair Clips

Free Crochet Pattern - Spring Blossoms Hair Clips

I came up with these flower hair clips when I was making a Christmas gift for my 9-year-old niece. I made her a hat and scarf set and wanted to make something else with the leftover yarn. They are quick and easy and can be used to decorate anything. Check out this post where I added them to a hat for a brave little girl fighting cancer.
