How to Make Felt Cookies

These felt goodies were so much fun to make!  Here you will find a step-by-step tutorial on How to Make Felt Cookies.  Later I might have time to post some instructions for the strawberries and cinnamon roll, but for now I am sticking to the cookies because they are the simplest to make. 

There are so many different cookies to choose from, whether “felt” or real.  As time goes on, I will discover more ways to sew felt cookies, but for now, I have made a sugar cookie, a chocolate chip cookie and a M&M cookie.

What you will need:

  • An Assortment of Felt (various colors)
  • A needle
  • Embroidery Floss (colors to match each color of felt)
  • Scissors
  • A plastic cup
  • A Pencil

To start with, gather sheets or squares of felt.  Try to find colors you would use for a cookie.  If you do not have felt around the house, you can find it at pretty much any craft or hobby store.  For the base of the cookie you would want to use a tan or ivory color depending on the type of cookie you make.

Felt Cookie ColorsThese are the colors of felt I used for my cookies. The tan was used for the base of the chocolate chip and m&m cookies. The ivory was used for the base of the sugar cookie. The light pink was used for the sugar cookie icing or frosting. The dark brown was used for the chocolate chips. I also used basic M&M colors (mostly primary colors) for the M&M's on the M&M cookie. Feel free to mix and match the colors any way you like.Step One-Use the plastic cup and pencil

For step one, simply use the plastic cup to make a circle on the felt.  Using your pencil trace around the lip of the cup like shown in the picture.

Now you have a perfect circle to cut out for the base of the cookie

Next cut out the circle you made on the felt.  Once you have two circles cut out it is time to make and sew on your “toppings”.  For the sugar cookie, simple cut out a round, wavy shape out of the light pink or other frosting color you choose.  Then you do the whip stitch to sew the shape onto one of the circles.  For the sprinkles, use pink, white, etc. embroidery floss to make short lines with an “in-and-out” stitch.  I made up the name myself, so don’t Google “in-and-out stitch. lol.  To sew the two circles together use a blanket stitch or the button-hole stitch.  Before the two circle are completely sewn together, stuff the cookie with batting or stuffing.  Note: For any type of cookie, I find that the whip stitch is the best stitch to attach the toppings.  Below are some pictures of the final cookies.
