I’m fairly certain I’ve never made a macaron.  They’re adorable, and I’m sure very tasty, but I think I’ve been intimidated.  Turns out, they aren’t as difficult as I assumed.  And I’ve been spelling it wrong.

Felt French Macarons would be adorable little pincushions, and the kit from Etsy seller sweetemmajean comes with the pattern and enough felt to make 12 cookies.


I’m off to the kitchen.  Or the sewing room.  Hmm….
