Valentine Knitted Cupid Bow and Arrow…

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:)…

Thin wire
Red yarn
2 double pointed needles for knitting an I-cord
Sewing up needle for ends
Red felt for your heart
Craft glue
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

    Cute!! You’re right. The possibilities!

    I get tired of the same borring supermarket mass valentines and thought it would be fun to make old fashioned ones with my daughter. We’ll see. I always seem to have great intentions…. and then when the time comes…. life.

    I just love the tutorials that you do. Thank you!

    Oh this is SO cute! I’ve never made an I-cord but I really think I’m going to have to try so that I can make one of these 🙂

    I wonder how long it would take for me to crank out enough of those for my kid’s classroom. What a lovely Valentine’s Day gift? Ok, maybe just for the teachers?

    Thank you for sharing.

    Linda these are adorable and something different from the usual heart. Hmmm… Valentine’s day tomorrow – I think I’ll whip one up now and make a brooch….I might make the arrow out of a yarn wrapped pipe cleaner tho for a different look. Just LOVE your tutorials and your yarn cupboards look fab. Thanks for sharing and happy Valentines day tomorrow.
