Confucius Says: Felt Fortune Cookies are in your future!

30 Mar


This week AFC introduces our second in what we hope will be a long line of Downloadable PDF patterns, and we know your going to love it. We proudly introduceShrimp Stir Fry! Yes that’s right the very same Shrimp Stir Fry that sold out as a kit THREE times in pre-sale and was our #1 best-selling kit over the last year! We just could not keep this one in stock, take a look and I am sure you’ll see why.

We now have the pattern in a full color INSTANTLY downloadable PDF, Paper pattern(with full color photo booklet) and the ‘just enough’ felt pack, which does not contain the pattern but all the felt needed to make everything in all the right colors at a great price!

And what’s a great meal without dessert? Included with both the PDF and Pattern you will find our Felt Fortune Cookie pattern. But as loyal blog readers you’ll also get it here, plus read on to find out how you can win the PDF Shrimp Stir-Fry pattern FREE!

Supplies needed: (will make up to 4 cookies)

1/8 yard or 1 9×12 sheet cream colored felt

Scrap white felt

Black fabric marker or embroidery thread

Coordinating thread

Optional: Felt highlighter and shading kit in Fresh Baked.

Step 1:

Cut your cream felt into 2 circles for each cookie (template at bottom of post)

Cut out white scrap into fortune size if using marker you will only need 1 per cookie if embroidering your message you will need 2.

Step 2:

Write or embroider your message on white fortune; if you are embroidering it you want to add another white piece to back to hide stitches, you can either stitch or glue these pieces together.

Step 3:

Attach completed fortune to the right upper side of one of the circles as shown:

Step 4:

Place both circles together and fold two rounds together as shown and sew along rounded parts leaving bottom edges open. (trim top part so it looks even if needed)

Step 5:

Push bottom center inward and push cookie together until your happy with the look then place a stitch or two to hold. (You can also use felt glue for this but you will need a clothes pin to hold it in place until it dries.)


 Highlighting creates an amazingly realistic look here’s how using our new Felt Highlighter in Fresh Baked.

Lightly highlight entire cookie with ‘golden’ adding a bit more to edges and curves.

Follow up by highlighting where the cookie meets and a small portion of the edges in ‘toasted’

Highlighting will become permanent in 2-3 hours.

    I found so many fortunes in cookies that I either really liked or thought were way off the mark for me that I made a little book of them. This is my favorite off-the-mark fortune so far:

    Suffice to say, I’m not “quiet and unobtrusive”.

    I still have the fortune I got that said: “A scholars ink lasts longer than a martyrs blood.” I got that one at just the right time. I was wondering if I should go back to college and take some writing courses or keep working at a well paying job I hated and it helped modivate me to go back to school. I now have it framed in my den.

    Great Idea American Felt and Craft! My 10 year old daughter and I like these:
    “You are free to invent your life.”
    “You are going to have some new clothes.”
    “Your mother loves you”

    It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do a little. Do what you can.

    I appreciate a good lesson when I read my fortune cookie, here is one I got a couple years ago that I keep in my wallet.

    Obstacles are things a person sees when he takes his eyes off his goal.
