Dress up your handsome little guy with a heart-shaped felt bow tie. Doubling up the felt gives it a nice structure, and because felt doesn't fray, you don't have to worry about finishing seams. It sews up really quickly and adds a sweet punch to a Valentine's Day outfit!

What you'll need

  • Red glitter felt
  • Thread

How to make it

  1. Fold the 4" x 5" piece of red felt in half lengthwise so that the glitter side is out. Cut two heart-shaped scallops into the ends of the folded felt. 

  2. Sew all along the edge.

  3. Prepare a hand needle with red thread. Pinch the bow tie to create a dimple by first folding in half lengthwise, then folding back again in an accordion fold. Hold the pinch in the center and run a thread through the folds to hold in place. Tie off and cut.

  4. Wrap a piece of 3/4" x 4" around the center of the bow tie, overlapping the ends in the back. Hand stitch closed.

  5. Use a small safety pin to attach the bow tie to a collared shirt just above the top button hole.
