Sugar Cookie Sack

Out of the entire Zakka Style book this was the project I was MOST looking forward to making. It is sooooo sweet and being a lover of felt decorations I was so excited that it was on the 'to do' list this month.
Now that I can embroider, I found the label easy to do with stem, straight and back stitch. I was able to do about 3/4 of it whilst ill in bed for 5 days. 

My Version

I reversed the fabrics and had a plain label because I had the sweetest vintage sheet fat quarter all picked out for it. 
My cookies had icing and buttons.
I sewed the ribbon onto the back of the sack after I had decorated it with one of the only fancy stitches on my Janome 2101DC.
It is now being enjoyed by my 4 year old daughter with her tea set. "I'll have a cuppa and a cookie please Frances."

  9. Now that is just ADORABLE (sorry to shout- hee hee!)
    Hmmm... better not let my daughter see this or it'll be another thing added to her constantly growing list of things that she wants me to sew for her...

  10. I just love this project! It too was the reason why I succumbed and brought the book! Mind you I had better hurry up and make it if I want Miss Moo to play with it - otherwise it might just have to be a future project for when my sister has children! LOL.
