How to make felt fortune cookies

The fun fortune cookies won't put on any callories!


Made of felt, they are so easy to make.  You can put your own little messages inside to suit the occasion or even a little treat like a Hershey kiss chocolate.

Step 1:

Using a lid or other round object, trace your circles on to your felt. The size of your circle will determine the size of your fortune cookie.

Step 2:

Cut out your felt circles.


Tip: cutting the large felt piece into smaller segments sometimes makes them easier to handle when cutting out the circles.

Step 3:

Using a matching coloured thread, fold your circle in half and sew some small stiches from the centre of your circle to about 1/3 across the diamiter as shown here.

Step 4:

Fold each edge in towards the stiched section.

Step 5:

Insert your message or small gift.

Step 6:

Have fun and enjoy!  What will you do with your fortune cookies?
