for those of you whose hearts fancy chocolate glazed...
or maybe white frosting and chocolate sprinkles
After showing my husband these- he told me they looked great but didn't have enough sprinkles on them to tempt him... so here is his
just a few more!!
They were SO much fun to make and decided that each of you should know how to make them too- so here is how I did it (there are probably better and less complicated ways to do this but this is what I came up with)
Supplies: Felt (multiple colors) thread and needle (coordinating colors) scissors, stuffing
1- Cut out two circles that will make up the actual doughnut- I chose my chocolate brown for this one
(I know fabulous photography.. blame it on the camera!!)
2-Line the two up on top of each other and cut a hole in the middle-3-Get another piece of felt that you want to use for the frosting and cut
4-Place frosting on top of circle, lining up where you want to place it, measure where the hole is and cut the exact shape of hole onto the frosting
5-Sew around the edge of the frosting in thread color of your choice (I liked mine matching) I used a backstich. Sew only on one of the circles!!
6-Add sprinkles. Easy- just do one little stitch randomly over the frosted area of the doughnut
7-Next, get your other circle and match all the holes together. Then do a little whip action (whip stich) around the middle circle with same thread.
8-Once your middle is sewn together, change thread and whip stich around the outside. I like to do almost half the circle before I added stuffing. Once halfway, stuff that baby, stitch some more, then stuff stuff stuff until you are done!!!
Not too bad right???
I couldn't just stop at the doughnuts.... so I made some festive sugar cookies

DO these make anyone else hungry???
Anyway, thought these would be a fun Valentine gift, and the possiblities are endless!!!
Like I said before, felt food is quite addicting!! Dont be surprised if the next couple of posts are more felt food projects- Maybe I will try going a little healthier
