Good things crumb to those who craft

One of our goals this year is to get more people crafting. So if you’re new to making felt foods, you’ll be happy to know these felt cookies and biscuits are a beginner-friendly project that is simple to cut by hand. Of course you can always use your cutting machine if you want to.

When it comes to felt foods, we also like to make a variety so you have options. Our template below includes the patterns to make two kinds of sandwich cookies, jam cookies, wafers, and shortbread with backstitched chocolate drizzle. Add a felt mug with cocoa and you have the perfect combo for chilly weather!

Skill level: Beginner

Stitches used: Straight, blanket, whip, ladder, backstitch, and french knot. Need more guidance? Check out our embroidery guide for step-by-step photo tutorials.
