How to make fortune cookies with no wire, no glue and only 3 romantic stitches...
1. Cut a 3" diameter round piece of felt
2. Fold the felt in half and pin. In like-colored thread (I used pink only so you can easily see my stitches), make 3 downward stitches from the middle of the fold. Finish off and cut thread.
3. Peel each side of the 'cookie' up and fold over the stitches. Manipulate the felt until you have the desired look.
4. Insert a special note to your love.

I photographed my felt starfish and sand dollar that I made for the girls last year. And I am considering making smaller versions as summer hair ornaments attached to pins or pony tail holders.
I just can't decide - cute or tacky? The line is so fine - what do you think? Fun hair ornament or best left on the toy shelf?
And yes, I am dreaming of the beach. Just a few more months to go...
