Felt Holiday Cookie Tutorial
I have a family FULL of foodies - myself and husband included- so on my list of things to make this holiday is food out of fabric to use as present toppers. This project is so easy and the end result might just be the cutest project I have made so far!!!
Use them in your gift wrapping.
Start with pieces of felt in colors that represent the food your are making. I decided to start with making cookies but you could make just about anything!!
If you do not have access to felt, a few alternatives are paper, fabric scraps or even painted fabric.
Cut out cookie shapes.
Add embellishments - chocolate chips out of felt, sprinkles from beads, icing from different colors- get creative with "decorating" your cookies!)
Once satisfied with the cookie, sew the top and bottom together and then stuff with just a little stuffing-this is optional- you may not want fluffy cookies :)
Have fun with color and contrast....
Tiny beaded embellishments that look like sprinkles...
Pretty designs with stitching...
Get creative "decorating" your cookies.
Use them on the tree- I am thinking next year a tree full of cookie ornaments!!
