Sitting at a cookie booth outside of a local grocery store, a fellow Girl Scout mom and myself were inspired by the little cookie characters on the cookie boxes. We thought it would be great to have costumes for the girls to wear when we sell cookies. As an after thought we realized how cute it would be for them to dress up as cookies in the upcoming "Do Dah" parade. I definitely didn't know what I was getting myself into when I said I would do it. I was the only sewing momma in the group so I was on my own. I did enlist my mom for some help on cutting and design ideas. She was so helpful. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, there are a few minor things that bug me, but I'm sure no one else will notice, so I won't point them out :)
Before we used the cookies again I decided to add a little sash with the names on the Tagalong and Thin Mint. It was a quick 1 hour project to make the 2 sashes and I think they make the cookies a lot more recognizable. The sash and letters are made out of felt. I printed out letter stencils online, traced them on the felt, cut the letters out, and hot glue them onto the sash.
Next on the craft list is Tutus with all of the color of the daisy pedals. That is an easy craft and I'm teaching the other moms how to make them as well. It should be fun!
I have finally written out a tutorial for this project! http://projectbonbon.blogspot.com/2013/02/girl-scout-cookie-costume-tutorial.html
