Cookie Cutter Fashion

One thing that might get me out of the sewing room and into the kitchen is the thought of making “fashionable” cookies.  It must be the thought of producing numerous Little Black Dresses in one day, or of attaching sugary flounces onto the skirts of many ball gowns, or dreaming of more shoes than I could possibly wear, that makes this activity so enticing.  Add the ambience of Paris to that – and suddenly baking is almost as much fun as sewing.

What suddenly took my thoughts away from sewing  – and to flour, sugar, butter and rolling pins?  An image of the newest cookie cutters from Ann Clark recently arrived in my Inbox – and among the offerings is this lovely ballgown:

I can’t wait to add it to my small collection of other fashionable cutters, shown here:

The Little Black Dress is a must for any dressmaker’s wardrobe – and kitchen:

Think of the possibilities for the High Heel Shoe: polka dots, sparkles, stripes, plain and simple or fancy evening slipper:

And what fashionable kitchen is complete with out the Eiffel Tower for stylish ambience?

Now, to be a little more serious about fashion sewing . . .  I’ve added another “page” to my blog – Favorite Products and Resources  (see up top).  This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, and I’ll add to it as I discover more treasures to share.

But – back to baking.  Should anyone be hosting a “Fashionable Feast,” I’ll bring dessert.  Cookies, of course!

  1. Cute cookie cutters! What a fun thing to collect!

    I did not inherit the cooking gene from my family, but I do love to bake! I guess sewing and baking go together – both require math and a bit of artistic ability. =)

    Love the cookie cutters! My mum is crazy about baking so we have lots of cutters too, but our are mainly christmas and animal themed.

  3. They are fabulous cutters! I love novelty cutters too, but don’t have anything as chic as these.
