Owl Sweater Clips!

I have been in love with sweater clips ever since I saw them on miss Emma Pillsbury, especially the owl sweater clip...

I couldn't resist, I had to make my own!

I bought these vintage owl clip on’s from pinktwill on etsy, I am so in love with them:

I have been on the hunt for any clip on earrings I can find and while I haven't had a lot of time to search, I purchased a few pairs online and immediately made them into sweater clips! You can find clip on earrings on etsy and ebay and of course thrift stores ;)

I had these navy daisy beauties lying around, so this is the first sweater clip I made. This one is perfect for work to dress up my plain cardigans :)

I have been wanting to a tutorial for these, but in the mean time Miss Kaylah from the dainty squid just posted up a tutorial!

I love how she used multiple layers of chain on hers and her chains have pearls on them, so cute!

Hope your having a lovely day!

Those are so cute! But if I made sweater clips, I suppose I'd need to come up with a cardigan...

I love it! I have a sweater that I knitted that won't close over my chest, this is the perfect remedy. Thanks so much!

What a brilliant idea! I love your owls!

@Michelle- Haha! Indeed you will need a cardigan! Target has pretty cheap ones and thrift stores too. Also lands end (where I got the seahorse one)has great cardigans always on sale :)

@Vanessa- YES totally! They are perfect because you can make the chain as long or short as you want, to have the sweater keep more closed or more open :) Would love to see what you make!

Thanks Mitzi! I want to make a million more because I wear a cardigan to work EVERYDAY, I just need more clips :)

You look like Joan from Mad Men's best friend! LOVE THAT DRESS. Also the sweater clips are so sweet.

I love these! I'm very much a cardigan girl...I need me some clips. I just havent found the right kind of chain yet.

p.s. I love your hair-do in these photos!

Ok... where's the follow button??? hehe. Love these clips! Anthropologie had little birdie clips on a green sweater a couple of years ago- this sweetly reminds me of it :D
