Building Cookies is Not SEW Easy!

Yesterday put me in a sewing mood which gave me this bright idea.  I wanted to build a sewing machine out of cookies. 

It worked {eventually}, but believe me, it wasn’t pretty. I may have said some bad words in the process.

Halfway though, I was thinking I might have been better off making the cute pillows on my to-do list instead.

But I made it, and lived to tell about it.

I wish I had a video of myself building these.  It would definitely be good for a laugh.

You can be sure, there will be much more cookie architecture in the future.  I am interested, but I need practice =)

I also had good intentions of making sewing cookies.  It’s been awhile since I’ve made any, and I have a few ideas I want to try.  But, life happened, and I didn’t get to it.  Luckily, they have been done, and they don’t get better than this. 

My friend Lisa made these cuties and I LOVE them.  My favorite is the pin cushion =) And, this is only the tip of the iceburg.  She does so much more…click on the photo below to see her Flickr page.

?I am hoping for a cookie weekend to do a little more cookie crafting.  Happy Friday, everyone.  Have a safe and enjoyable weekend!
