Gulf Coast Catch Instantly downloadble PDF pattern available now!
Our new pattern : Gulf Coast Catch features some of the Gulf Coasts’ best offerings. Fish, Shrimp and Clams!!
This pattern was created to specifically to help the animals and fisherman effected by the BP oil Spill. American Felt and Craft has always taken our commitment to protecting our environment seriously. And in an effort to help 100% of our profits from this pattern, EVERY PENNY, will be donated to 2 charities to help those effected by this horrible event. We hope you will join us in helping those effected and we know you will enjoy this beautiful pattern.
The first of the two charities we donate to will be the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund which focuses on helping fishermen and their families but we know that losing livelihoods pales in comparison to the massive loss of life and homes for millions of animals so please join us in selecting the second of the charities we donate the profits to:

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