Crochet Cookies and New Prints
I've had so much fun this weekend crocheting cookies. I found a really fun, easy pattern in this Etsy store. I also found a free crochet oreo cookie pattern here.
Both of these patterns are very easy to do. The only thing different I did with the oreo pattern is that I used black yarn instead of the brown the pattern called for. The reason is because every Oreo cookie I've ever seen has been black on the outside, not brown. For both cookie patterns I used Caron's Simply Soft yarn because it was all I had and I had lots of different colors on hand already.
Like I said, this was alot of fun this weekend. I'm going to put a platter with these cookies arranged on it to keep on my Hoosier cabinet in the kitchen. I also want to make some more Oreo cookies and put them in a clear glass jar of some kind. I just think these are cute arrangement to put in the kitchen. They look real. Of course now that I'm doing this and fooling all of my friends and family, I'll have to have some real cookies on hand. Looking at these crochet ones will make you want a real one.
I love photography and especially taking pictures of flowers, so I want to tell you about two new postcard prints that I have just put up in my Etsy shop.
