It's Lauren here from Molly and Mama and today I'm showing you a really quick and easy way to make some adorable felt Christmas Cookie Ornaments. These make the cutest play food for little ones. Or you can add some hanging loops to make beautiful tree ornaments. Here's how...

To Make One Cookie You Will Need:

Instructions:

NOTE: When ironing wool felt, use a press cloth (or scrap of cotton fabric) to cover and protect it.

1. Iron the fusible heat bonding web to the back of the white square of glitter felt.

2. Use the Christmas Shapes die to cut one snowflake from the glitter felt.

3. Remove the backing paper from the fusible webbing on the back of the snowflake.

4. Die-cut two 3" felt circles from the coloured felt using the Circles Die (choose one colour per cookie).

5. Iron the snowflake shape to the centre of one felt circle. Alternatively, use the appliqué glue to help secure the snowflake.

6. Place the second circle of felt behind the circle with the snowflake and pin or clip together. Using three strands of white DMC floss, stitch the felt circles together with a small running stitch. Be sure to sandwich the knot between the layers of felt.

7. Sew three quarters of the way around the circle, add a small amount of polyester hobby fill and continue to sew the circle closed.
