The Way The Cookie Crumbles (Felt Cookie Tutorial)

After writing about my poor crumbling emotions whilst making felt cookies this week, we made a little tutorial to go with it.  I'm awful at sewing and even I managed to make these...and what's even better is I made 24 of them for £4!  Budget friendly toys!

Here we go...

Step One: Cut and collect.  I traced around a spice jar lid originally and then decided to go freehand.  Cookies are never perfect!  Choose a size you like.  Then collect your sprinkles and cut your frosting or icing the way you like it.

Step Two:  Sprinkle Pretty.  The needles I bought were too big to go through the bead sprinkles  so I glued mine.  If you have little ones who will eat the beads, get back to the shop and buy thinner needles.

Step Three:  Stitch Up!  I used (and had to learn) blanket stitch.  It was easy even though I made a few mistakes.  Again, no one likes perfect cookies ;)

Step Four:  Stuff With Fluff.  A little fluff into your cookies to give some volume and then seal up.  

Step Five:  Present your cookies!  

So easy. Honestly.  They took about an hour to make 24 and they are so well loved already!

If you make any, we'd love to see them!
