Pink Donut Felt tutorial

Pink Donut Felt Tutorial

I created a step by step tutorial on how to make these. They are easy and fun, and everyone likes them! Please follow the pictures and steps below if you want to make your own felt donut.


Step 1: Gather your materials

You will need 2 circles for your donut, 1 circle of a different color for your icing, matching embroidery floss and a needle to sew. Not pictured is the stuffing, which you will also need. You can use cotton balls if you do not have stuffing. If you skip the stuffing it will still look like a donut, just flat. :)


Step 2: Sew the icing.

First, you will want to sew on sprinkles onto the icing. Then, use a running stitch to sew the icing to one of the circles you have cut out. Simply run the thread out and under the felt and leave a little stitch to view. You could skip this part entirely and use T-Shirt puffy paint or glue beads on for sprinkles. 


Step 3: Sew the donut 

Change your floss and use the same type of stitch to go around the outer edge of the donut. Then insert your stuffing.


Step 4: Sew the donut hole

Change your floss back to the icing floss. Tricky little guy, this part I ran the needle from the bottom circle through to the top, then I dropped the needle through the donut hole, stitched through the bottom and then back up again. Tie off your ends, and that's it! Not too difficult.
