Pink barrette conundrums

As part of my craft-a-day challenge, I wanted to start AND finish a small project today. Finally decided to give the barrette thing a try and encountered a few challenges:

1) The smallest barrette I could find was about 1.25 inches, which means the barrettes will be larger than my pins normally are. This isn't a huge deal, but I don't like the idea of a giant barrette stuck to my head--although maybe other people are ok with this?

2) Attaching the barrette back is a little different than the pinback...also not a huge deal but not ideal. I felt wanted it to be really secure--so I sewed the felt to the holes on the ends, put fabric Mod Podge between the barrette and felt, and sewed the middle of the barrette to the felt for good measure.

It feels pretty solid to me! But if anyone has other ideas for fastening the barrette, I'm game.

Here's what the finished product looked like. I don't love it, but it's cute and was a good first try, as well as a quick project.
