Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a fantastic winter weekend. I have been so in love with all the felt crafts I’ve been seeing lately so I thought I’d  start Five days of Felt, a whole week dedicated to this wonderful fabric!

First up are felt gift bows! I spotted Jessica’s amazing magazine gift bow tutorial on How About Orange and was so inspired! Her directions are simple and super easy to follow. I ended up using felt instead of magazines and the result was perfect! The only other difference was that I used a hot glue gun instead of glue dots.

I was also able to create a bow broach just by adding a pin-back (found at a fabric store) to the back. I adheared the pin-back with a dot of hot glue and then secured it with a few stiches of coordinating thread. For the how-to details head on over to How About Orange and enjoy!
