This is my first challenge. I spent 3 hours making these and nothing turned out as I had planned and at the moment I'm not really sure if I like the end result or not. I guess I like them.



This is everything I used (butter cream, chocolate milk and "petit beurre" cookies):



The cookies took a bath in chocolate milk and then formed the inside of my stuffies. The butter cream was used to make them stick.
I made three stuffies.

Dinosaur:


Elephant:


Cat (it was supposed to be a dead cat but I don't think it lookes very dead?):


and also 3 balls of wool (its really hard to form balls using rectangular cookies !) :


a group shot:


and this is how the kitchen looked afterwards Wink


then I dyed my butter cream (one color for each stuffie):


I dont really like the colors but I forgot to buy new ones so I had to use what I had on hand. the cream didnt mix very well with the color. I think its because of the butter.


so now we get to the point where things didnt work out as planned.  I blame summer.
I knitted them. I was going to draw the structure the wool would have if these were really knitted on BUT the cream was too soft which is because its too warm and also the cream didnt want to stay where I put it which is also due to the weather. 

I forgot to take a picture of my chocolate knitting needles and stitches after I made them. I just drew them onto paper and put them in the fridge.
I used the stiches to sew on the eyes and ears and the dinosaurs cant think of the word.
And because of summer (damn you summer!) the knitting needles let their heads drop before I could even take a picture. Sad

Anyway pictures!

















I didnt knit them very well. In some places they stretch too much and you can see the inside.  Also I couldnt reach some parts without destroying something else. Please forgive me. I should have thought about that before!


This is the ugly cake I made with the leftovers (just for the record):



+ they taste REALLY GREAT!

I hope you love them as much as I do now after I wrote this!

Those are cute! And I love the shots of "this is what the kitchen looked like" because I was immediately thinking "I would have totally gotten icing everywhere if it'd been me!"

Me too. It would have been in my hair, on my clothes, on the floor..everywhere but on the cookies. No wonder my mom doesn't trust me in the kitchen... Tongue
