-Flat back safety pin
1. Print out the template I have created, and cut it out. I made this template on a 8.5 by 11 inch piece of paper, so make sure to fit it to the page when printing. I cut my paper pattern out, and then pinned it to the felt for cutting. 2. Fold the smaller piece so that the ends are overlapping a tiny bit. Hand sew the edges together. 3. Take the larger piece and scrunch it together in the middle to form a bow. I like to tack it in place with a few stitches, and then wrap the thread around the middle a couple of times before securing down. 4. Sew the smaller piece on top of the larger piece. Make sure to scrunch the middle to make it look like a bow. 5. Cut a thin strip of felt and wrap it around the middle where you previously stitched. Sew it down in the back, and then sew a flat back safety pin onto it. 6. Now you're ready to get a little bit spooky! Wear it as a bow tie, or even as a brooch.
I think this came out really cute. Although I used mine as a a bow tie, you cold also use it as a brooch. It could also make really fun party decorations - maybe hanging from strings, or stuck to the wall? Go ahead and get creative with these. I bet you could have so much fun!
