Ice-cream sandwiches part 1: Biscuits

It’s taking longer than I thought to put this tutorial together. I sort of rushed this, sorry about:

  • the fluoro orange nail polish…an experiment that I won’t repeat! Gah!
  • the harsh red lettering…especially in the first photos, where I was writing by hand with a crayon on the table. 😀
  • the terrible yellowy color-cast these photos have

You will need:

  • Paper
  • cardboard
  • scissors
  • quilt batting
  • craft glue
  • a toning shade of embroidery floss
  • a sharp needle
  • possibly a thimble
  • a large sharp needle or an awl
  • a padded surface to do the awl punching on

you will need

Uh, please ignore the strip of card for the moment, that’s for Part 2…*doh!*

It’s just the circles for this part.



Huh? Where did my text go? Anyway, it’s pretty clear here: work a running stitch all round the edge of the felt circle. 🙂

    1. these are ADORABLE
    2. what is the typeface that you used for the title on the post?
    thanks! this blog is totally inspiring me to not buy things and to USE them… if I can just figure out how to give away the things after I make them…

    • Thanks, Siren! The typeface is Pepe; the whole photograph, including fonts, was created in online photo-editing program…please go try it, all services, including premium ones, are free for anyone to use until April, because they’ve announced that Picnik will be closing down. 😦 Still, you can get plenty done between now and April!
      I know what you mean…I find that children are usually very willing victims recepients of my silly little creations…
