DIY felt macarons

diy-felt-macaron

Felt macarons are overall useless, because they lack the amazing taste of the real thing. However, they make fun decorations, needle cushions and even toys. And when I say toys, I’m thinking of fab tea party for young ladies – nothing better to serve with pretend tea! They’re also easy to make:

what-you-need

What you need:

  • felt in candy colors
  • thread and needle
  • scissors
  • wool (or cotton wool) for filling

cut-felt

First of all, draw two circles. I used the smallest cup I have to draw the pattern, with a diameter of 5 cm. Cut them. Next, use felt in a different color to cut a long strip, about 1 cm wide and 2∏R long (mine was 2 x 3.14 x 2.5 = 15.7 cm).

stitch

sew

fill

Once that’s done, stitch the length of the strip to one of the circles, as show above. You can use a sewing machine if you don’t mind handling miniature things. Stitch the other circle to the strip, but leave a small portion un-stitched – use this to turn the macaron on the right side, and to fill it with wool. Finally, stitch the hole, making sure it’s not too visible.

  1. I really really really want to eat macarons once on my lifetime. But this cute stuffed felt macarons are pretty enough to try them and let them be on my room to wake me up everyday.
    Looks simple so I will try to do them this weekend. Thanks for sharing!
