Free Felt Food Tutorial - Doughnut



First for the doughnut template, find something round thats the size that you want your doughnut to be. Draw round it twice and cut out, so you have 2 circles. Mine is about 9.5cms across






To find the centre fold one of the circles in half, then fold out again.
Find something small to draw round in the centre of the template and cut out. This is your doughnut template.








For the icing, place the doughnut template over the other circle and draw out the centre hole. Take the template off and draw your icing shape. Cut out the centre hole and the icing shape.







Use your template to cut out a piece of icing for your doughnut.





To make the doughnut, place your doughnut template over 2
squares of felt, leaving plenty of room round the outside. Either
machine or handstitch round the outside of the template, leaving a small gap for turning. Carefully cut out the centre hole and trim round the outside of the doughnut leaving a small gap. To make a neater finish make small snips round the outside making sure you don't snip your stitches (yes i have learnt from my experience!)




Carefully turn the doughnut inside out through the small gap








Sew the small hole closed with small blanket stitches







Carefully and firmly stuff the doughnut then sew the gap together with a ladder stitch





Add frosting to your icing, then first sew the two centre pieces together with blanket stitch, next sew the outside of the icing to the doughnut with blanket stitch.
