How To Make Felt Play Food Christmas Cookies:

1.  Use Christmas cookie cutters to make a pattern for your felt cookies.

2.  Cut out two light brown felt shapes as the cookie front and back, and then colored “icing” pieces, slightly smaller than the cookie pieces.

3.  Start the sewing with adding the face.  Cut two small black felt eyes, and pink felt cheeks.  Use the white embroidery cotton and stitch one french knot as the center for each eye.  Next is the mouth stitched with black embroidery cotton using the backstitch.  I found it really helpful to use a disappearing marker (you can find at the fabric store) to mark the mouth and get just the right expression before stitching.

4.  Add any other embellishments, like bead “sprinkles”.  Next, sew the “icing” to the cookie piece.  Then, sew the the cookie pieces together using the blanket stitch.  Leave a small hole for the stuffing.  Once it’s lightly stuffed, stitch up the hole and your cookie is finished.
