I’m keeping these posts short and sweet 🙂 These are very simple and easy crafts to make, so they don’t require a lot of explanation. Once you cut out the patterns you’re half way there!
I turned this DIY felt donut into a Christmas ornament, but you could also exclude the string loop and it instantly becomes play food! Or make a dozen of them and string them together into a fun garland.
DIY Felt Donut
Felt – I used this felt in Seaside and Rose
Polyfil or wool stuffing
Tweezers – for easier stuffing
Embroidery Thread – to match the pastry and in 3 contrasting colours
8″ String – optional
Printed pattern – make sure you print it at 100% so the sizing is correct. (Get it at the bottom of this post.)
Embroidery scissors or snips
Use a straight stitch in 3 contrasting colours to create sprinkle stitches that secure the icing to the pastry. Random little stitches are best!
Use a matching thread and a blanket stitch to sew the edges of the inner circle together all the way around.
Continue using a blanket stitch to close up the outer edge of the DIY felt donut, using the tweezers to gently stuff it as you go around.
Step 4 (Optional)
Add a loop of string before you seal up the donut if you want to use the felt donut as an ornament.
That’s it! See I told you it was a simple project!
