Introduction: Fabric Fortune Cookies

Picture of Fabric Fortune Cookies

These can be made as party favors with a theme, for example, a bridal or baby shower. I had watched a show on HGTV where a woman made a quilted fortune cookie about a yard in diameter. When we heard we were getting laid off from our jobs at the call center we decided to have one last potluck lunch. I wanted to have something to give out and I thought about the fortune cookie but had to get them much smaller to make enough to give everyone in our section. Then I remembered making fabric flowers with fabric and bonding. I used that technique to make the smaller fabric fortune cookies and put a Bible verse in each one since some of us might not ever see each other again.
