I thought I'd try my hand at making a felt donut like I've seen on the net.
I was inspired by www.Donuthos.com and www.Sewdorky.com web sites Grin
I'd liked to have used beads for the sprinkles, but I have a toddler and I wanted it to be child safe. 
It was really easy, just a little time consuming.  This would be fun to put some vanilla potpourri inside to make it smell real too! yum!



This could be bad... I live in the country and the closest place to get donuts is about 15 miles away! arg!!!!!



HERE'S THE TUTORIAL AS PROMISED!


Ingredients you'll need:
5 1/2" cardboard circle (or a bowl etc..)
2 ltr pop bottle lid (1 1/4" circle) 
1 piece brown felt
1 piece pink felt
needle
brown & white thread
asst'd seed and bugle beads or embroidery floss
stuffing
ink pen
sewing machine
scissors

Fold brown felt piece in half and trace the 5 1/2" circle onto felt with pen.
Center pop cap (1 1/4" diameter) on circle and trace onto felt with pen.
Draw both circles on one layer of pink felt for the iceing.

On the brown felt, sew just inside the 5 1/2" circle line.
Do not sew the little circle just yet!



Now cut out brown felt donut about 1/4" past your sewn line.
and cut the little circle about a 1/4" in from the drawn line towards the center, now make little
notches every 1/4" all around the inside of the little circle.

Turn the donut right sides out.
Now to sew the donut hole closed....
Turn a couple of tabs in at a time and whip stitch them closed, just like when your done stuffing something
and you close the opening. Just tuck,stitch,tuck,stitch... easy as...pie. Smiley

Now stuff your donut, I like to use the end of a pen to get my stuffing in good and tight.
Now's the time to add potpourri or other smelly stuff if you want your donut to smell yummy.
Whip stitch opening closed.


Icing:
stitch beads or embroidery sprinkles to the pink felt.

Pin the icing to the top of the donut and whip stitch in place.

Your done!  It looks delicious!!! Wink

Now I think I'll try to make an eclair, cinnimon roll, boston cream etc........yum!

Well this is my first tutorial and I hope I did it OK.
Please let me know if I can improve on anything!

Hooray for felt food! I think the vanilla potpourri filler could be dangerous...I know I'd lick it when no one was looking.

How did you make it round-ish without having the sewing bunch? Like when you blow up an inner tube really big, there are a few spots where the plastic kind of folds...?

Felt is really forgiving, I didn't have any problems with it bunching at all.
I wish I had made it just a little fatter.
