i call them thing 1 and thing 2

i got the chance to try my hand at cat in the hat-themed cookies last week. as i usually am when tasked with something new, i was a little stressed over how i'd pull it off. but i perused a bunch of ideas online and finally came up with a plan.

i especially love working with this particular friend, because although she's as much of a detail-oriented partyzilla as i   am, she pretty much gives me free reign as far as design. with these, she asked for a dozen hats and then a dozen each of thing 1 and thing 2 designs. i toyed with the idea of hand cutting hat shapes, but settled instead on a round scalloped cookie with the hat drawn on it. 

after doing the outline, i got a little worried. it didn't look very good so far. 

setting those aside to allow them to dry a little, i then turned to my thing 1 and thing 2 cookies. i'd decided to keep them simple:

filling in the stripes on the hat made me feel a little better. maybe it would work out after all. 

same goes for the rest - as they got filled in, i could see them all coming together. 

just a few more details drawn on, and i was happy to be done. 

and when they were all wrapped up and tied with pretty blue ribbon, i was completely satisfied with how they turned out.

whew. one more success to add to the cookiefolio.
