Felt Food: Cookie Baking Set

I have really been enjoying making my girls some felt foods and toys. They are so easy to make, and it is such a homegrown thing. I get the same sense of satisfaction and being “in touch” with what I’m creating as I do when I’m cooking something from scratch. Also, maybe it’s just my imagination, but I think that they play longer and more interactively with the felt foods than their plastic counterparts.

This project was a cute cookie dough baking set that I was inspired to do after seeing a similar set at My Mommy Makes It. All I needed was 2 sheets of light brown, 1 sheet of medium brown, my sharp embroidery scissors, and my felting tool. This tool has made all the difference, because that means NO SEWING!!  I use the Clover Pen Style Needle Felting Tool, and you can get one here.

I started with cutting a freehand shape from a sheet of light brown that looked sort of like a dough shape. Basically the whole sheet but with rounded curvy edges. Then I put that on top of the other brown sheet, and then needle punched it together by going around the edge. (I use my felt punch on top of a craft pillow rather than using a pre-purchased brush form). Once secured, I cut the excess edge off.

Now, using cookie cutters, I traced some shapes and then cut them out carefully, without damaging the cut outs.

Then I sealed the inside edges of the “dough” with the needle punch once the pieces were all cut out.
 After it was all secure, I turned it over and clipped away all the little hairs that the needle punch produces, to give it a clean finish.
There, that piece is done… now the cookies.

Each cutout produced 2 pieces, but you only need one from each shape. I put each shape onto a piece of med brown felt and punched it together, then cut the shape out. This gives you a cookie that has a lighter brown side to match the “dough”, and a darker brown side to look “baked”.
