5 Minute Dapper Felt Puppy Dog Bow Ties

What’s cuter than a puppy dog? A puppy dog wearing a bow tie! Grab the three sizes of patterns over on our site! This features our newest family member Oliver Sprout. Read about how we got him here: http://bit.ly/puppychart


Felt (soft type)


Hot Glue Gun

Black 1/2″ elastic. (Or larger for bigger dogs)

Thread (for tying small bows
Felt makes wonderful puppy bow ties! It's light weight and doesn't unravel.
After choosing a pattern size and cutting out your bow pieces take the larger piece and pinch it as shown.
Larger bows can be hot glued (Pictures of that on our site.) For small ones it's easier to tie thread around them.
Hot glue the center piece around your bow using VERY LITTLE glue. You want to keep your bow very light weight.
Measure your elastic to be "lightly" snug. Glue it together.
You can either glue your bows on or make them interchangeable using Velcro. (Shown on our site.)

    Beautiful story! Shelter dogs are the best! They remember and greatly appreciate being saved. I lost my Shih Tzu, Sam a year ago. I'm still not ready for another dog. Your bows are the cutest!

    I read your blog. OMGosh it brought tears to my eyes! I work with a local rescue so it warms my heart that you rescued this sweet boy and how he came into your life is a great heartwarming story. He is a DOLL for sure, I think it hit the jackpot with that little guy ;) I also read the tut on the personalized bowl, another cute idea. Thank you

    • Thanks so much Toni for saying that. He is the most awesome little guy. Smart as can be. It does indeed feel like he was looking for us. And thank you for doing such a wonderful thing to make a difference in this world. Ü
