Sweet Vintage Bows


  • Felt
  • Hot Glue
  • Scissors or rotary cutter
  • Measuring tape
  • Trim or lace


  1. To start the felt bow, cut 2 pieces of felt (A) 1in x 6in and (B) 1in x 4in.
  2. Take piece (A) and fold one edge into center and glue. This should measure 1 1/2 inches. Then take the other end and fold into center, bumping heads with the other edge.
  3. Put a dab of glue in the center and pinch together. Hold for 10 seconds.
  4. Cut a small piece of felt (C) 1/2in x 2in.

  5. Put hot glue on piece B.
  6. Lay piece A on top of B. Make sure you have enough glue on there to make it stick well.
  7. Cut off the extra felt (into the curve) with your scissors.
  8. Cut ends to a point.
