How to Make the Peppermint Shape

* Download the circle and swirl patterns by clicking on the link below.

* Machine-sew the swirl-circles felt onto the white circles.
* Place the assembled circles with wrong sides together.
* Sew the together, stuffing the shape with fiberfill before sewing the circles closed.

How to Top It Off

* To make a knotless bow, first fold the rickrack in half and sew it securely to the edge of the circle.
* Fold the green ribbon back and forth, forming two same-size loops and two tails.
