Felt Hairclips ...

How to make a felt hairclip

 Cut a small slit in a rectangle shaped piece of felt, open the hairclip and push through the slit, fold the felt over
 Using coordinating thread and a small running stitch sew around the hairclip through both layers of felt

 Trim around the hairclip

 Diecut felt flowers and stitch around the edges

 Add a polka dot button and stitch the flower onto the felt covered hairslide

Can you tell me how you finish off the running stitch around the clip? Do you knot it on the backside or just snip the thread?
