Vintage Winnie the Pooh Cookies
My friend is having her first baby and although I wasn't able to make it to her shower, I offered to make her some cookies for it. She told me that her baby shower's theme was loosely based on a vintage Winnie the Pooh look, so I made the cookies to go along with this.
For these cookies pictured, I used the onesie cookie cutter from the Wilton Baby Theme Set. Winnie Pooh was the Dancing Bear from www.cheapcookiecutters.com and I also found the Honey Pot and Mini Bee cookie cutters at this site as well.
For the rattle, I was inspired by the style Oh Sugar Events' baby rattle. I followed her design but used different colors.
This was one cookie set where having a projector came in handy. I used it to project the polkadots onto the onesie and rattle to get a more precise pattern. I also used it to project my sketches of the honey pot, bees, and Pooh bear onto the cookies. I drew the black outlines on Pooh, Piglet, and the honey pot with a food dye marker once the icing was completely dry.
