Step 2:

Cut out the paper template cookie shapes. You can cut one cookie out fully. On the second cookie you can cut just the icing out (for the sugar cookie and star cookie) and a chocolate chip out for the chocolate chip cookies.





Step 3 - Chocolate Chip Cookie:


For each Chocolate Chip cookie you make, you will need to cut out 2 light brown cookie circles


Start by marking the chocolate chips locations to the top single layer of cookie. Use a dark brown embroidery thread and 3 strands of floss, make a thick, double French Knot in each chocolate chip location. Don't worry about the threads running from chip to chip on the BACK side of the cookie. We will cover these threads up. Repeat this process stitching a double French Knot on each chocolate chip location.


Next, take the 2nd light brown cookie circle and layer it on the back of the stitched cookie, covering up those messy threads. Using a coordinating thread color to the cookie base, blanket stitch around the perimeter edge joining both light brown cookies together.

Step 4:


For each Sugar Cookie, you will need to cut out 2 beige cookie circles and 1 smaller icing circle.


Start by sewing the smaller icing circle to the top of ONE of the sugar cookie circles. Use a coordinating embroidery thread color and a blanket stitch around the entire perimeter. If you want to add "sprinkles" you can do this step now; embellish the top of the icing with a variety colors of french knots, single stitches or even sewn on tiny beads. Again don't worry about the threads running from sprinkle to sprinkle on the BACK side of the cookie. We will cover these threads up.


Next take the 2nd beige cookie circle and layer it on the back of the stitched cookie, covering up those messy threads. Using a coordinating thread color to the cookie base, blanket stitch around around the perimeter edge joining both beige cookies together.

Step 5:


For each Star Cookie you will need to cut out 2 brown cookie stars and 1 smaller icing star.


Start by sewing the smaller icing star to the top of ONE of the cookie stars. Use a coordinating embroidery thread color and a blanket stitch around the entire perimeter. If you want to add "sprinkles" you can do this step now; embellish the top of the icing with a variety colors of french knots, single stitches or even sewn on tiny beads. Again don't worry about the threads running from sprinkle to sprinkle on the BACK side of the cookie. We will cover these threads up.
