Felt Cookies

What you will need:
  • Cream or Chocolate colored felt squares (5 for $1 at JoAnne's fabric) for the cookie, pink, purple or other pastel colored squares for the frosting.
  • Ecru or Chocolate colored embroidery thread
  • Polyfill batting
  • Puff paints in colors that coordinate with the frosting colors chosen
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Quilting needle

Making the Cookies

  • Find a cup or small bowl that is the desired size of the cookie you want to make and trace circles onto the Cream or Chocolate felt squares, and cut out.
  • Find another cup slightly smaller than the first, and trace circles onto the pastel squares.
  • Staying within the lines of circle on the pastel squares, cut out a wiggly-lined circle for the frosting.
  • Use the puff-paint to put "sprinkles" on the frosting and let dry.
  • With the hot glue gun, glue the outer edges of two cream colored circles together (leaving the middle and a small edge section unglued for stuffing.
  • Stuff cookie with batting to desired puffiness, then glue shut.
  • Once dry, glue frosting to top of cookie.
  • Use a blanket stitch to stitch the outside edge of the cookie all the way around.
  • "Serve" and enjoy!
