Working with felt is amazingly easy and I keep seeing cute little projects that don’t require (much) sewing at all. For today’s DIY I am showing you how adorable little felt bows can be as an accessory. Interested to learn how?
The bow from this pattern measures about 2 inches in width. Ready to make one or two or more of this cute felt bow patterns?
To showcase the use of little felt bows besides hair accessories I added those to a tutu dress since the chest band is a wide meshed crochet headband and very see-through.

The felt bows in action 🙂
To use these bows as an accessory for clothing you can either use a safety pin and fasten the bow on the backside to the clothing. For my adorable example I hand stitched the bows to the crochet band of my tutu dress. I made two bows and used them to hide the skin which would otherwise peek through the wide meshed crochet band.
