Default Semi-newbie would like a question answered please..

I made the 80's braided barrettes; but I'm such a visual person that I have a hard time understanding written directions, so I went by memory...

what a few people have asked me about, when they have seen them, was that the ends aren't ribboned. What I mean by this is that the silver, black or white barrette is showing at the end. it is not covered by ribbon. Its not a lot, but its enough to bother me..

Please, I am not as talented as 99.9% of the ppl on here, I only do this for fun and for my girls and a few friends..honestly I cant even get a basic bow down..so please be gentle! LOL

If you see the braided barrette in this photo, you'll notice that at the right side of the barrette at the end, I didnt remember how to "end" the barrette...so there are two diff. endings..each didnt work IMO...
the only reason as well, that there is no barrette "showing" so to speak is that I used a black barrette lol..so how do I ribbon the beginning side of the barrette?

TIA for your help and guidance!!! (ignore the mickey clips!)

I've never made these & I'm certainly not an expert, but judging from your description, the only think I can think to do would be to line the barrette first & then do your braid over it...does that make sense? Like I said, I've never tried it, lol, but it seems like that would be the easiest way to cover the clip.

Ive never done it, but I would figure you could do it like weaving the headbands.

The only issue would be, that the braiding is done in between the openings of the clip..so if I line it..I cant braid it right...

This may help:

It looks like they have some of the barrett showing but this may help you with ending the ribbon.

My mom used to make these for me back in the day! I have several tuts printed and the materials, but have yet to finish one...I am thinking that maybe spray-painting the barrette may hide the fact that they aren't covered all the way? Like for our school colors, it would be royal blue and white, and I would paint them either white or royal blue...and I think I am going to try using a bit of adhesive on the starting pieces to hold it steady, as that seems to be my problem...

Thanks for that link. I too have wondered how you make them. My little girl loves anything that hangs down. She thinks she is a princess.
