The great British biscuit (not to be mistaken with The Great British Sewing Bee but they would go rather well together) is a staple that every crafter needs in their cupboard. Of course, there’s the real version like our gingerbread biscuits but for a healthier option, we’re opting for Ouissi Gresty’s felt version! Take time out with a cuppa and your felt stash to bake up her Jammie Dodgers. They’d also make super cute gifts for any little ones in your life – who doesn’t want their very own tea party?
You will need:
- Felt in various colours
- Soft toy stuffing
- Biscuit-coloured embroidery thread
- Fine needle
- Jammy dodgers templates from issue 4
How to make felt jammie dodgers
You Will Need
- Toy stuffing
- Embroidery Thread
Using the templates from Mollie Makes issue 4 cut out your felt shapes. You can layer the red jam felt piece, the top of the biscuit, the splat and the little round splash.
Make sure the ‘jam’ fills the heart-shaped holes and that the splat and top holes line up. Pin the layers together.
Sew around the heart making sure the stitches go through all layers.
Sew around the outer edges of the splat and the round splash piece.
Fold the long side piece in half lengthwise and sew down the centre.
Open out the two long edges to form the sides of the biscuit.
Pin one long edge of the side piece to the edge of the top of your biscuit.
Sew all the way around the top.
Stuff your biscuit, making sure you fill the edges and corners. But don’t fill it so full as it will bulge!
Pin the bottom piece to the bottom edge of the Jammie Dodger and sew. You are now done. Enjoy!
