This is Susi from Lilla Luise again 🙂 As we were sewing some pasta for our outdoor play kitchen last month I thought we totally should have something for our sweet tooth too, right? So what about making some super easy but oh so cute felt animal cookies? Summer is still in full swing so I am sure most of you can still do a lot of outdoor playing and hopefully “play-cooking”!
To make your very own felt animal cookies you need to find some favorite animal cookie cutters (or any other shape, really, but we thought animals were the cutest choice).
We will also need scraps of felt, some beads and sequins, embroidery floss and a sewing machine.
First of all place your animal cookie cutters on your scrap of felt and trace around it – we will need one cookie shape cut out and another piece of felt that is slightly larger than the cookie shape you just cut out. Stitch on beads and sequins – you can skip this, but it really makes them look super cute – sprinkle-style, you know?! Make sure you don’t get too close to the edge otherwise you will have a hard time to sew around the cookie (been there, done it, learned from my mistake ;)).
Once you are done with the embroidery part place your decorated cookie shape on top of the larger bit of felt and sew all the way around it with a sewing machine, pretty close to the edge.
Last thing to do is cutting carefully around it and tadaa, you are done!
Here is our selection of cookies…camels, turtles, elephants and swans.
Here is my little Miss in deep concentration, stitching on her little “sprinkles beads”.
And here she is proudly presenting her new felt animals cookies.
I hope this little tutorial is fun for you and inspires you to make your own felt animal cookies!
