felt pot sticker tutorial

If you know my family (or have read this post), you know we really call pot stickers Swei Jows. So, of course they had to make an appearance in Sadie’s kitchen!

Here’s how I made them…as usual I am all about the easy felt food, so these are crazy easy. So easy I did a few steps without taking pictures! The scandal!

So, first you’ll cut out a few circles of off white felt-mine were about 4-5 inches wide. Then, fold them in half and stuff a bit of poly fil in, then hot glue or fabric glue them shut.

You could sew them too, but I used glue for the rest, so I just stuck with that. haha! STUCK with that. get it? glue? ok..moving on…
Now you’ll make the “pleats” at the top, smush like so with your fingers to get a crease…
and then, like the photo says, slap some glue there! (also on the other side of the crease you made!)
smoosh! Repeat two more times, one on either side of your middle pleat.
and then tada! You have some cute little pot stickers! yummm.
