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!
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.
Sew all along the edge.
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.
Wrap a piece of 3/4" x 4" around the center of the bow tie, overlapping the ends in the back. Hand stitch closed.
Use a small safety pin to attach the bow tie to a collared shirt just above the top button hole.
