I am so excited to introduce you to the newest addition to my plushie family!!
Sweetie is a cookie monster. She is the first in a series of plushies that I will be working on. Let's get to know her a little bit.

Here is the story of Sweetie...
One of my friends posted the Cookie Monster song on facebook last week and the idea to make a monster that looks like a cookie popped into my head. I pretty much try to figure out how I can turn everything into a plushie now. I thought this could be really cute.
This was a really simple pattern to draw. It's just a circle with monster eyes and mouth. The frosting is a random shape that I cut out of felt. My favorite part of the cookie is the little sugar sprinkle beads. It took me forever to sew those because I had to sew each one individually. I think it was worth it. Now it really looks like a sugar cookie.
My least favorite part of making plushies is closing the flipping hole. I can never make it look good...especially on round plushies. This time I tried making the stitches a little further apart and that helped a lot. It almost looks like a circle! ;-) It's still not perfect but I'm happy with the outcome. I think Sweetie might be my new favorite plushie! :-)
I have plans for a few more cookie monsters. There are so many kind of cookies out there so the possibilities are endless! :-)
