Let’s Make Some (Wool Dough)Christmas Sugar Cookies!

Is there anyone who doesn’t like Christmas cut-out sugar cookies?  They are so much a part of our Christmas holidays baking, that I really can’t imagine not having them.
Ever since last Christmas Holiday season I wanted to make some wool Christmas Cookies.  I couldn’t fit the “baking” into my work schedule until now. 
I started with the background “plate”. ….
christmasSugars1With this background, like the backgrounds on “Witchy Things”, “Jacks & Cats” and “Just Pumpkins”, no measuring is required for the shape placement since the shapes are all ready cut out in the background wool “plate”.
My cookies are ready to be pinned on and stitched now.
ChristmasSugars2 MMmmm, sugar cookies!
I used thick, coat weight wool for the cookies.  The thickness makes the cookies look almost real.

ChristmasSugars2a All the cookies are blanket stitched in place in no time at all!

ChristmasSugars3But I like my cookies with icing!

ChristmasSugars4  The icing is whip stitched on!
But, I also like some sprinkles on my Christmas Sugar Cookies …
ChristmasSugars Does this not make you want to go in the kitchen and bake now?
I liked how this turned out so well, that I wanted to make a plate full of cookies to go with the candle mat …
ChristmasSugars6 These cookies could be used as bowl fillers, or as ornaments….


Christmassugars5 But make sure you tell the grandchildren to not eat them!

ChristmasSugars7 Of course this Sugar Cookie Candle Mat would look nice with a candle in the center, but a plate of Christmas Cookies would be absolutely yummy delicious too.

I have to write the instructions for this new design pattern but it should be ready to sell by early next week. 
Watch for the updates!
Happy Day!

What a clever idea. And good use of the witch fabric. We don't like to waste any wool, right? LOL Peggy

I love your idea and am looking forward to getting the pattern for our mini-tree this year. Four kittens mean a little tree, up high. Hope that cute little guy got some real cookies to eat.
