How to make jammy dodgers step 1

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?

This project was created by Ouissi for Mollie Makes magazine – for more easy-make craft projects and creative inspiration, subscribe to Mollie or click here to find out more.
