C is for cookie- Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Felt Food Tutorial

Felt Chocolate Chip Cookie Tutorial - Lots more felt food patterns too

I’ve received a few emails asking me for a starter felt food project so here it is, the chocolate chip cookie this one is an absolute basic felt food tutorial but it’s a great starter project if your new to sewing it’s also great for kids since it really couldn’t be easier. I also threw a few variations in at the end for you overachievers! Oh and the milk carton is from our Picnic Lunch pattern.

Here’s what I used:

1 sheet wool blend felt in Camel (will make at least 3 cookies)

Scraps of chocolate brown felt.

Thread to match Camel colored felt

Thread to match  Chocolate colored felt

A small amount of batting, I prefer wool batting.

OPTIONAL: Stuffing beads (these add a small about of weight to the cookie which makes them more fun to play with and can help a child develop a sense of balance when picking them up with a toy spatula.)

Felt and batting can be purchased at American Felt and Craft.


For each cookie:

Cut light brown colored felt into 2  3″  circles

Cut Chocolate colored felt in 1/4″ circles (as many chips as desired)

Cut Batting into a slightly smaller than 3″ circle.


Step 1 Sew chips onto outside of one of the cookie rounds, since you are using felt your only goal is to affix them firmly so a simple X stitch on top will do.  I used light green here for illustration.

smaller than cookies

Step 2 Check batting size by sandwiching between the two cookie halves, now is the easiest time to trim it if you need to.


Step 3 with batting removed whip stitch around outer perimeter until your a little more than halfway done, stop and place your batting and stuffing beads (if using) into cookie. Whip stitch the rest of the way around and your cookie is complete!

Varations on the theme:

Cookie Counters:

felt counting cookies from American Felt and Craft Make the desired number of cookies using 1 chocolate chip on the first, 2 on the second and so on. Before sewing the pieces together using cross stitch thread back stitch numbers onto cookie bottoms before sewing matching cookie tops and bottoms together.

You and your little one can practice basic math skills by counting the number of chocolate chips and then turning the cookie over to see the corresponding number. They can also be used to learn the numbers by asking questions like, Which cookie has the number 4 on it and then turning them over and counting to see if the child is right. These are a big hit at my house!

Felt food chocolate chip cookies

Your felt cookies are sure to last a lifetime or two so why not help history out a bit by marking their beginning.  Here I used Orchid colored felt to cut a small heart shape followed by the giver and the year.

White Chip

Chocolate and white chip cookies

By using the same process you can make a white chocolate chip cookie. Here I used Chocolate and Buttercream felt.  Perhaps you live in a magical house where cookies are pink and purple, the combinations are endless… have fun and send pictures!

    My daughter is doing a project and neds a pattern for a pizza. Can you help??? Thankyou

      I am guessing your daughter is in elementary school so an easy way for her to do this would be to use our cherry pie 6 slice template and reduce the size so she has 3 circles in graduated diameter, then cut the smallest 6 slice template in light yellow, the medium in red and the largest in tan, she can glue them all down with felt glue and add whatever toppings she’s like from felt, it should make a good looking all be it flat pizza.

      We are currently working on a more complicated pizza pattern but I don’t expect it to be done before summer.
      Good Luck hope this helps!
