Conversation Heart Play Cookies


Here's a quick pattern for some fun Valentine's day cookies that you'll be able to whip up in no time. I saw some real cookies just like this at my favorite cooking store and I just had to make some for my kids to play with.

You'll need some dark brown felt, low-loft batting, a bit of pink, cream, yellow and lavender felt, red dimensional fabric paint, the pattern, and matching colored thread. (Two 8" x 10" pieces of felt will make 4 cookies.)



Place 2 layers of dark brown felt on top of a layer of low-loft batting. Trace cookie pattern onto felt and sew around line leaving an opening for turning. Trim excess felt and batting and turn right side out. Sew opening closed.


Cut out icing in various colors (pink, cream, lavender, yellow). Using red dimensional fabric paint, decorate icing felt with expressions "HUG ME", "KISS ME", "BE MINE", and "LOVE". (You may need to do this more than once to get a good dimensional look. The felt has a tendency to absorb some of the paint.) Once paint is dry, hand stitch icing onto your cookie.

Let me know what you think. And . . . . Happy Valentine's Day!
