Being organized for cookie season is a very important part of being successful. This creative and fun felt organizer is a fabulous way to create ownership of the sales for a troop and allow them easy access to necessary paperwork and forms.
To make the organizer, you will need the following supplies and materials:
- Kunin Classic Felt (9 x 12) in Apple Green and Kelly Green for Pockets
- Kunin Corduroy Felt (9 x 12) in Walnut, Red and Cashmere Tan for Cookie/Heart
- Kunin Premium Felt (12 x 18) in Cashmere Tan for Outside Folder
- Sewing Machine/Thread
The first step is to make the decorations for the outside of the organizer. To make a Samoa cookie, use the cashmere tan and walnut felts in the corduroy. For the heart, you can either freehand cut it or use a die-cut machine.
Sew the cookie and the heart to the top half of the large piece of Premium felt.
Place the two pieces of green on the top of the other side of the Premium piece and fold it to create your organizer that will have two felt dividers creating three pockets.
Sew around three sides of the organizer leaving the top open. You will end up with a felt organizer that has three pockets. The pockets are great for forms, receipts, money, etc. during cookie sale season.
You can now find an expanded color line of Kunin® Classicfelt; Kunin® Premiumfelt and Corduroy non-wovens fabrics in cut by the yard at your local Walmart; please inquire as to what is available in your area.
Cheers to Successful Cookie Seasons for All,
