Following this tutorial at The Mother Huddle, I decided to make my niece a little felt cut out cookie set to go along with her little chicken apron.
The stitches are incredibly ugly. Oh, well. I was slightly pressed for time and I would have preferred a tidy blanket stitch, but whatever. I also did the cookie itself in a little bit of a darker thread to indicate that it had been cooked.
I found the mini rolling pin at my local Ace hardware.
The yellow cookie cutter was in my drawer. I was going to do a star, but I didn't like it. I really liked the one in the tutorial, but given the pathetic state of the St. Paul roads, I did not feel like driving out to an antique store to find one.
I added a little foil cookie sheet to the set:
Don't forget to ice them:
And then I put everything together. The only thing I didn't have was the spatula and I liked her idea with the little box, but I didn't have one and kept forgetting to look for one.
