Happy Thursday everyone! My sweet tooth has hit me again while crafting, and this time I made a macaroon. It was so fun and easy to make, a craft that the little ones can help with and enjoy.
The materials that you'll need for this craft, are two sheets of felt in whatever colors you choose, about a handful of Polyfil, string, a needle, scissors, and two circles to trace for size reference.
I made two large circles and two slightly smaller circles on my first color felt, and one slightly smaller circle (the same size) on my second color felt. Cut those out once you've traced them all.
Sew in and out around the edge of your large circle, and once you've finished all the way around, tug on your string slightly.
As you're tugging on your string, place your large circle onto one of your smaller circles for size reference. If your large circle is now smaller than small circle, now is the time to trim those down to size.
You can now begin to fill your open circle with Polyfil. Be sure not to overstuff!! It won't look like a cookie if there is too much in there.
You can now sew your first smaller circle of the same color onto your larger beginning circle. Make sure that you are closing it up all of the way, and leaving a little room around the edges as well.
Repeat the first process so that you have two edges and one circle of filling. You can now stitch them all together to complete your cookie!!
There are so many variations to this that you can make, have a great time making your own little colorful French macaroons!!!
