Sweetie Darling

I am so excited to introduce you to the newest addition to my plushie family!!

Meet Sweetie!

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.

Name: Sweetie
Date of Birth: 2/25/2011
Favorite Color: Pretty Pink
Favorite Song: C is for Cookie - Cookie Monster


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!  :-)
