Felt Christmas Cookies

In all the excitement of preparing for my women’s ministry Christmas event last week, my 3 year old daughter decided she was hosting a Christmas tea party. She is a great thrower of tea parties, and she thought that if mommy was breaking out the Christmas trees, then she needed in on the action too. This week has been a little less busy, so I thought I would make her some felt Christmas cookies for her tea party. We have made some before, see them here, but wanted these ones to be a little more festive.

I started out with a small star cookie cutter and traced around the outside to make a paper pattern. Then I pinned the pattern to the felt and cut out two for a front and a back to our “sugar cookie”.

I also traced around the inside of the cutter, to create a smaller star for the icing, and cut it out of yellow felt.

To create the front of the cookie, I sewed the yellow icing to one of the brown cookie pieces.

After that, I sewed on some small beads that look exactly like the coarse sugar you decorate cookies with.

After putting the “sprinkles” on, I sewed the front to the back. About half way around, you add a small amount of stuffing, and continue until all the way around.

I used the cookie cutters to create Christmas trees, and gingerbread men also.

I found some really cute mini-buttons at the fabric store, that I used on the gingerbread men, and for the stars on top of the Christmas trees. I also made some simple round “M and M Christmas cookies”, just like the ones we made in a jar here.

After they were all sewn, Maddie set up her little pink Christmas tree in her room, and her cute foam gingerbread house, that I found at Dollarama on the weekend for $2.

  1. These are adorable. Can’t wait till the craft store opens to get some felt! I feel lots of tea parties coming on.

  2. I just picked up a bunch of felt on sale at Michael’s to make my kid’s a felt story. I’m going to try these felt cookies out and hopefully they’ll turn out as yummy as Maddie’s did!

  3. Those are super cute! My little girl loves her play food – she would adore this. I even think she could help make them. They would also be cute just to have out for decoration.

  4. These are adorable! I need to make more felt play food for my daughter, and these would be perfect. I especially like the “frosted” stars and trees. The bead “sprinkles” are a nice touch.

  5. I wish this idea had been around when my daughter was a little girl and we had tea parties all the time. But one of these days, there will be grandbabies….muah-ha-ha-ha!!!!! Such a sweet and beautiful idea–enjoy your little girls!

  6. I love this – I just made a felt Christmas tree for my girls, that was also posted on CraftGossip – http://partycraftsecrets.blogspot.com/2011/12/felt-christmas-tree-craft-tutorial.html – but now I’m tempted to make a gingerbread house and sweets to decorate it… thanks for sharing – so clever!

  7. Love this idea I made these cookies for a friend. I placed the in a cookie box, when I gave them to her. I made them so she could hang them on her Christmas tree. She loved them.
