These dainty little treats are a hit in the kitchen, a play kitchen that is. My kids puts these on a small tray I bought at the dollar store and bring them to us to taste. Follow my how-to for these fun Felt Sugar Cookies.
First, you will need felt, embroidery thread, needle, and batting. Using a glass or cup, trace a circle onto your felt. Make it at least 2-3 inches across, you can always trim later. Double up the felt and cut out 2 circles at once.
Get out the colors of embroidery thread for the colors of sprinkles you want your cookie to have. Thread your needle and make a knot at one end. Using only the top circle, go up and down throughout the felt to make the look of small little sprinkles. Simply tie a second knot on the back of the felt when you are done.
Cut or pull out some batting to make the middle of your cookie. Not too much. You don’t want your cookies to look too puffy. Place the batting between the felt circles. You want at least 2-3 centimeters in from the cookie without batting.
Now you can sew around the cookie. You can use a sewing machine on a zigzag setting as I have done, or you can stitch a blanket stitch around the cookie for an even more homemade cookie look.
Then I did this one as an Oreo cookie and only stitched the two felt pieces together through the batting. I didn’t sew the edges.
These felt cookies look yummy enough to eat. Here are a few other fun food finds at Etsy that could be in your play kitchen.
These are so adorable! I like the creativity in the variety of the cookies. I made my daughter a felt birthday cake http://www.thriftyniftythings.blogspot.com. So much better that the plastic food you can buy.
Love these a lot! I am going to make some for my daughter! She loves playing tea party and these will be a perfect addition to that!! I can’t wait to get started!
thanks for sharing – these – love, love themmmmm!!!
Liz – I love the pictures of your cookies. The Gingerbread one is fabulous. That would work great as a present with the classic Gingerbread book.
I made a few for my son yesterday and he loved them. Thanks for the idea!
Oooo, I hope you all make these. They have been so fun in the playroom for both my kids. They could even be hot glued together if someone didn’t have a sewing machine.
This might be one of my favorite crafts ever! I’m totally going to make those. I even have everything on hand. I love this, Marie!!!!
Cute and fun!
