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:
- felt in candy colors
- thread and needle
- wool (or cotton wool) for filling
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).
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.
