Needle felting with a cookie cutter is a fun, and easy way to create flat wool shapes that you can use for embellishments on sewing and felting projects. These shapes would be adorable felted onto a T-shirt or a jean jacket. Using a cookie cutter saves you from having to create a template for your shapes. It is all so and easy way to guide your needle while you felt. There are felting molds on the market created specifically for needle felting, but if you have a variety of cookie cutters stored away you might as well try your hand at cookie cutter felting. The molds that you purchase are made of plastic, so if you have plastic cookie cutters try those first, if you’re cookie cutters are metal, take care near the edges so as not to break your felting needle.
