The 'little grey cells' have been whirring away and the cute cookie is one idea I've come up with and so I thought I'd share it with you as a non fattening Easter treat!
You could use it as a keyring or brooch.
You will need
2 circles of tan felt - whatever size you want your cookie to be, mine are 5cm across
2 small black brads or buttons
11cm of ribbon
small piece of chocolate felt
a split keyring
Find the centre of one of the circles, and just a little way up make two small holes close to each other for the brads. I use the points of my little scissors, but the official way is to get a pin or needle and then wriggle it in the hole, to make it bigger!
Push the brads through to make the eyes or
Sew on two small black buttons to make the eyes.
Sew a big smiley mouth with a little stitch at the bottom and at each end.
