How to Make Felt Sugar CookiesMarie LeBaron
These fun felt sugar cookies are the perfect treat for teatime. My daughters love to serve them on a silver plastic serving tray I found at a party store. The cookies are super simple to stitch, perfect for all levels of sewing.
Supplies for Felt Sugar Cookies:
- brown and cream colored felt pieces
- cup for tracing
- polyester batting/stuffing
- embroidery thread
- sewing machine or needle and thread
Step 1 1 of 5Using 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.
Step 2 2 of 5Get 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. It doesn't matter what the back looks like, it will be covered with the other circle.
Step 3 3 of 5Cut 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.
Step 4 4 of 5Now 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 with a needle and thread around the cookie for an even more homemade cookie look.
Step 5 5 of 5For cookie sandwich look: I did this one as an Oreo cookie and only stitched the two felt pieces together through the batting using embroidery thread. I didn't sew around the edges.
