Six Simple Circle Cookies


I meant to get this blog post up before Christmas, but I didn't get it done in time.  Instead, I started my own Etsy shop!  I've been very busy trying to get that store stocked and full of unique items.  I didn't realized how much I had to get done to start a new project like that- oops.  Anyway, I have a fun set of circle-based cookies to share with you.  Like all my felt food, it also includes free patterns!

As I already stated, all six of these cookies are based on a simple circle shape.  It makes it so much easier to cut out and sew up if you're not dealing with a lot of extra pieces and shapes.  The pattern lists which circle sizes to use for each cookie, so you should be able to reproduce them very easily.  The main supplies you need are felt, thread, and needles, which I've listed below along with links to where you can purchase the products.

1mm thick felt in a jam color, brown, and a frosting color
