FIMO leather-effect Scarf clip
The ideal accessory for all scarf wearers!
A scarf doesn’t just keep you warm on cool evenings, it quickly turns your dirndl outfit into something very special. Create a real wow effect with your home-made FIMO leather‑effect scarf clip. If the weather‘s still too warm to wear it, it can be used to store your scarf in a practical way and the loop makes it easy to attach to your handbag, for example. It looks great, and when you get cold, you have it close to hand.
Roll out a block of FIMO leather‑effect in black into a sheet (clay machine setting 8) and cut out a long, wide strip.
The leather effect stands out even better if you move the FIMO sheet gently by hand after rolling it out, pulling it apart a bit.
Lay the FIMO leather‑effect sheet flat on the baking paper and harden in the oven for 30 minutes at 130 °C / 266° F on upper and lower heat.
Tip: Work in progress and left-over material should be protected against sun and heat and can be stored in a screw-top jar or in cling film to protect it from dust and dirt.
Now draw a 12 cm x 4 cm rectangle on the FIMO leather‑effect sheet using the Lumocolor non-permanent.
Cut out the rectangle with the scissors.
If you can still see any pen marks, simply remove them with a damp baby wipe.
Take a kitchen knife and cut two little horizontal notches in the middle of the back. This is where you will attach your key ring later.
Stick a lovely piece of lace or other material that you like on to the back so that it protrudes slightly at the top and bottom.
