Lo Mein & Fortune Cookies

Here's some more felt food that I have been working on today. I call this "Lo Mein" and it comes complete with fortune cookies!

It didn't take very long to make this; about 30 minutes. And, best of all, no fancy tools needed!

Lo Mein: light brown felt and green felt
Fortune Cookies: light brown felt and 18 gauge floral wire
Extras: hot glue gun

For Lo Mein: Use a ruler to make stripes on felt and cut out. You can skip the ruler part but, I cannot cut a straight line!

For broccoli: Cut a green piece of felt 4 1/2"x5 1/2"

Fold in half. Staring at folded edge, cut strips to the half way point.

Roll up tightly and glue ends. Cut a thin strip of felt and wrap stem right where cut ends start. Glue in place.

Using your finger, fluff out ends.

To make the fortune cookies, cut a circle of felt (about 4.5") Glue a piece of wire in center of circle.

Fold one end over and bend into shape.

Flip ends over top of cookie.
