What better way to start a Monday morning than with a doughnut....

I used the template on Skip to My Lou to cut out the frosting, but I found the doughnut template was too small compared to the frosting, so I traced a CD instead.

I love the look of the blanket stitch for "baked goods" so I used it to attach the frosting to the top doughnut piece.

I then used my sewing machine to sew the two brown doughnut pieces together inside out.

Next I flipped it right-side out and used the blanket stitch on the middle to close the doughnut up.

I stopped a few stitches from the end and stuffed it full. I think it is pretty cute!

Small Sale Alert...

I found these felt colors clearanced at Walmart for $0.10 each instead of the normal $0.25 (or $0.29 at Jo-Ann and Michaels). I used the brown and pink for my doughnut and picked up some yellow for a future banana. Hopefully they have the clearance at your Walmart too!
