Bow: Purple Posie Felt Bow

 The design of this bow is actually what got me started on the felt bow craze....when I found myself adding a similar bow to a basket on a website....for 7 dollars.....and realizing how easy it would be to make my own.....I got busy.  I bought some pearl dots, felt, and elastic.  The elastic made more than 10 bows! 
 I cut two strips from the felt (just about 1/4 inch wide.  The felt was 15 cents a piece, could make quite a few of these bows out of that piece!
 The pearl has a stick back, but I added a dab of glue to hold it down, along with two leaves, and then I just started adding a few dots to the side every few centimenters and wrapping around my thing felt.
Dot of glue, roll, dot of glue, roll some more. 
 I cut another round circle to sandwich the elastic.
 I glued the elastic down, then cover the whole circle with glue and added my posie to the top.
