Super Cute Monkey and Frog Clips

How cute are these monkey and frog clips?  {FYI... the one in the middle is my three year old little monkey.  Pretty cute, eh?} 


Want to make some for your little monkey?  First, gather your supplies.  You'll need:
  • scraps of felt (green for the frog and brown & tan for the monkey)
  • small black buttons
  • needle and embroidery thread (black, green, and tan)
  • scissors
  • glue gun
  • clips (alligator or snap clips work)
  • templates (Click here for the templates.)
For the Frog clip:

Using the template as a guide, cut a front piece and a back piece from the green felt.


Sew on two button eyes, and use black thread to back-stitch a nose and mouth.


Using green thread attach the front piece to the back piece.  Use a glue gun to attach a clip to the back.


For the Monkey clip:

Using the template as a guide, cut a back piece from the brown felt and a front piece from the tan felt.

On the front piece, sew on two button eyes, and use black thread to back-stitch a nose and mouth.


Using tan thread, attach the front piece to the back piece.  Use a glue gun to attach a clip to the back.


That's it!  If you haven't already, I would LOVE if you would follow me on facebook.  I have lots of tips, tricks, and tutorials to share. 

Thanks, 
Gina (aka East Coast Mommy)
