I wanted to share our latest Valentine’s craft, Cupid’s Bow and Arrow. It is really a simple little project, I love simple:) It is knitted in an I-cord… I was thinking of attaching this to a card and sewing on the word LOVE at the top of the card with straight stitches in a red cursive font. I would stick the bow and arrow to the card with craft glue or fabric glue. Otherwise they could be attached to napkin rings for a Valentine’s dinner OR even a hanging ornament if some thread was attached, or a broach, ok I will stop now:)…
2 double pointed needles for knitting an I-cord
Sewing up needle for ends
Red felt for your heart
Red cotton thread and sewing needle
Cast on 3 stitches and knit two I-cords one – 3 inches long and one – 4.5 inches long.
Cut your wire to the same length as your I-cords and push into your I-cord, this can be a little tricky, so if it really refuses to push through, just wind your wire through the sittches of one side of our I-cord.
Sew in your ends and around the ends, bend your bow and attach some red yarn that will hold your bow in position.
I cut out a small red felt heart and sewed it onto the end of my arrow instead of a point. Sew your arrow to the bow.
And there you have it, Cupid’s bow and arrow…
Enjoy xo xo
