Sweets for my Sweets



I made these felt Valentine's Day cookies for O and my niece. They were quick and easy to make. I hope the girls like them!

Since a couple of people have asked for directions for the cookies, I thought I'd post directions here instead of in the comments section. So here you go...
1) cut 2 hearts out of the tan felt using a cookie cutter as a pattern
2) cut a slightly smaller heart out of red or pink felt
3) sew the colored heart to one of the tan hearts using a running stitch
4) sew sprinkles onto the cookies using embroidery floss
5) sew the 2 tan hearts together using a running stitch. leave a small hole and fill with stuffing before completely sewing the hearts together

    I echo Professional Mommy...I've been wanting to try to make some felt food...but I'm afraid to take the leap! Any suggestions?

    How funny! My word verification box wants me to type in 'feltus' Maybe it's a sign? ;)

  5. The girls are going to have so much fun pretending with those! I bet the cookies would go well with O's tea set.

    You did a wonderful job on the cookies!

  8. Wow, these look delicious. I really have to make some too ... And what a nice thing to give O something for valentines! Would have never even thought about giving my daughter something for valentines. (In Germany it's not so big.) But now I think I will make something for her too ...

    Thanks for sharing
