Handmade baby blankets always make fabulous gifts, but let’s face it – they take a while to make! I try my best to avoid store bought gifts, though, especially for close family and friends, and so I occasionally explore alternative (and quicker!) handmade gifts, like baby booties and plush toys. One of my favorites has been Tara Murray‘s birdy rattle (you can purchase her pattern here!) but it still takes a little more time and effort than I can squeeze in for a completely last minute gift.
So I started experimenting with Irish rose style crocheted flowers for hair clips. I made a couple for a baby basket contribution and played around with some varying sizes of yarn to match some other gifts I was working on at the time, but then I found some really pretty sparkly pink cotton thread and suddenly I was making all kinds of adorable pink flower hair clips!
So if you’re looking for a really last minute gift for a special little girl, you can whip up a pair of these in about an hour or so.
