Sugar & Spice & Everything Nice

Felt food seems to be all the rage these days in children’s play accessories. After seeing some felt that looked good enough to eat I decided to try my hand at it. I made each of my kids a sugar cookie with frosting and sprinkles. My daughter was disappointed when she put it in her mouth and realized that it was not really a cookie.

Felt Cookies

 

The cookies were so easy to make, that I put together this tutorial for you. (kate, let me know if you want to adapt and use this over here).

Step 1: Cut out 2 felt circles, I used an old canning lid as my guide.

Step 2: Cut out your frosting. I used the inner circle of my canning lid and free handed a scalloped look.

Step 3: Using a small running stitch sew the frosting to the top cookie layer.

Step 4: After you have attached the frosting you can use seed beads, french knots or sequins to create your “sprinkles”.

Step 5: Attach the Cookie top to the cookie bottom using a blanket stitch or a running stitch (I think I’m going to try this next time as the blanket stitch tends to give it a crimped look). Before you completely seal the edges be sure to stuff it with a little bit of poly fil.

 

I found this tutorial for a felt cake if anyone else is interested.
