To make the masala dosa, I started off with a scrap of tan felt that could look like a dosa when folded. You can use a circle if you have enough felt. Here is what I used:
I knew I could just hide the weird cut on the right by folding it under the rounded edge on the left.
Next I got some yellow scraps for my potato filling and a green one to look like cilantro or pepper, and sewed the green felt onto the yellow. I then used a double thread of brown to make a couple long cumin stitches and a double thread in red to make some red chili specks, and my masala was done.
All I had to do next was sew the potato filling into the dosa. I did so with tan thread so it wouldn't show on the outside of the dosa, with a running stitch.
Then I folded the dosa the way I wanted it to look and used a blanket stitch with tan thread to hold it in place and the masala dosa was done and ready for my kids to play with in their play kitchen!
