For the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap, I made my partner's two daughters each a bag of candy made of felt!


I kept getting strange looks when I was at JoAnn's and told people what I was making.  I'm making felt candy.  It also took my husband a while to grasp what I was talking about.  No, its not actually food or sugary felt that you suck on.  Its play food!  You play with it!  ^_^  lol!

Anywho!  They were pretty simple to make.  They are filled with batting that were either cut into squares, rectangles, or circles, covered in felt and sewed up with embroidery floss.  The suckers were the hardest ones to make.  They are a sucker stick that you can get in the baking area, poly-fil, and felt.  They were sewed up at the bottom and then pulled shut.  I also threw some hotglue inside to help keep the sticks on there and it all in one piece.



Thanks for looking!
