Iced Sugar Cookies

Next up, iced sugar cookies, a necessity for every tea party!

I found this wonderful tutorial from Bug Bites Play Food. And be sure to check out her Etsy shop; so many cute creations!

I decorated my cookies with different sprinkles:

straight stitches

french knots

This video was very helpful in learning how to do french knots.

For the stitching around the icing and outside of the cookie I used a blanket stitch, which can be found here.

I also made some cookie dough... I think I will now need to make a cookie without frosting and a rolling pin!

My first felt food project!

Felt Strawberry Tutorial from mr.monkeysuit

This was a wonderful tutorial and I couldn't have asked for a better first project. They are very simple to make; yet very rewarding.

The tutorial recommends making circles 3 to 4 inches big for the strawberries, which is a very cute size. My husband wanted to see some larger ones, so I made a few 4.5 to 5 inches and they are much more life size. They are all so cute... I need a whole basketful!

This last week I discovered felt food and there is no going back! It has become a wonderful new obsession of mine. There are so many wonderful ideas online and so many wonderful treats to make. I am hoping to use this blog to grow a large collection of great links to all the amazing creations out there. I hope you find inspiration for cooking up some fun for your little ones!
