All you need is a small scrap of felt (double the width of the size bow you want) and a glue gun. I think we can all manage those few things.
Start by accordion folding the felt into 4 equal portions.
The side with two folds, you will leave wide and the side with 1 fold and two tail ends will be narrow. Begin by cutting the wide edge of the bow, like so:
Finish cutting the other side and you'll end up with a piece that looks like this
When it's unfolded, it'll look like this:
Cut out a small, thin piece to be the center of your bow and two tail pieces. I didn't use a pattern and simply cut them freehand.
Wrap the center piece around the center of the bow and hot glue in the back
Then hot glue the tails on the back as well and it will end up looking like the most perfect bow you've ever made... ever.
I used double-sided tape to attach it to my Secret Santa gift for work and was done. Love it!
Like I said earlier though, this would be an adorable accessory for the holidays (or in other pretty colors for everyday), so experiment! It would have been an extra sassy adornment for my embellished gloves from the other day so I think I need to make a new set!
