I made some Bucky Bear and Winter Soldier Bear cookies. Cute, tasty and too many are dangerous.
You can see more of my dessert creations on my website:
I recently had a giveaway on my fandom cookie side blog and missbeckywrites won one of the cookies, and a bajillion years later (5+ weeks), I have finally finished with a Director Stark cookie.
I’d been meaning to make one for forever, and he needed a Commander Rogers, and serendipitously, they finished this weekend (in other words, i had an excuse to procrastinate on grading in order to finish in time for SteveTonyFest, and now I am about to pay the price in tears).
I totally cheated on Commander Rogers, as he’s a bit of an amalgam of MCU and 616—the costume is almost entirely 616, but I stole the hair from the Winter Soldier trailer because I wasn’t confident I could make the Commander Rogers hair look at all appealing in icing.
I promised to upload the pattern for this back in freakin’ March. Eternally absent-minded, I am.
This cross stitch pattern is based on an image from Matt Fraction and David Aja’s superb comic Hawkeye. You too can have your very own naked Clint Barton

"You might have missed a few things … doing time as a Capsicle."
Capsicle cookies! I had a lot of fun making these and got to try out my new cookie projector.
Pretty simple: Sugar cookie with pale blue royal icing. I painted the Cap shield in with red, white and blue matte petal dust, then went over the whole cookie with a mixture of white and pastel shimmery lustre dust, which proceeded to get on EVERYTHING, so I set it with some edible fixing spray, and that’s what makes the shield look like it’s under a translucent blue layer. I finished it up with flaky white edible glitter while the spray was still wet so it would stick to make it look a bit frosty, and frosty Capsicles!
I’m off to Austin Comic Con for ill-advised shenanigans. How sad is it that grading is coming with me?
So, my friend, who you all have heard about by now, has sent me 3 new creations to photograph. I’m going to spread them out a little bit, so that no one collapses under the weight of knit-genius. Disclaimer is that I did not make any of these, and she doesn’t offer them for sale.
This is Knitpool. He is a naked knit Deadpool doll, complete with cancer sores, that has then had his clothes knitted, all accessories and weapons knitted, and he has 2 different masks for different expressions. His swords come out of their sheaths. His grenades are removable, all the waist pouches are /functional/, and his gun and knife also come out of their holster and sheath. Two hoods. One with the standard eyes and one with the o.O face. He has THUMBS, and tiny gloves that have thumbs that fit the thumbs….AHHHH I can’t stand how awesome it is. hahaha. He has little white socks on, and the boots are separate pieces, each. He has a /belt loop/ to tuck the belt tail into and the classic symbol as the buckle.
He has a belly button and nipples, and lets not forget…some Captain America boxer shorts, because…of course he does. He also has a taco for the same inexplicable yet awesome Deadpool-y reason. Being around Knit Cap for even a small amount of time caused him to totally lose sight of modesty and sense.
He stands same height as all the others, about 10 inches or so. Now…I have to go separate him from Cap again before he tries to take Cap’s shield.
My amazing knitting friend has created the ultimate billionaire philanthropist playboy, none other than Tony Stark himself. Tony Stark is a naked knit doll with a wardrobe. He has VERY tight, short briefs, in red of course, the arc reactor, and then a white dress shirt, black pants, black suit coat, tiny tiny knit bowtie(what the hell, right? My eyes would explode), little dress socks and shoes with laces and HEELS (because of course he demanded a little extra height) . He has big beautiful brown eyes, the proper facial hair, and he also has his Mark V suitcase, and a tumbler of scotch or something amber-ish colored. I’m not sure how she manages to create expressions that are so lively with just a few stitches of embroidery, but they really seem alive. OH, also his head is slightly bigger than Cap’s head, which I find very appropriate. :)
Naturally, while he stayed at my house for the photoshoot, Knit Cap had to attempt to keep him in line. (Knit Cap lives with me, while other knits live in other friends/relatives houses) But when it was time to send Tony on to his new home, Cap had a hard time saying farewell!

People, when I wrote that post yesterday, I was not expecting it to garner the response it did. I was expecting a few notes, some long0distance high-fives, and maybe a request or two.
But holy hell. Again.
A nice person offered to SEND ME YARN so that I could do this.
HUNDREDS of people gave it a thumbs up, or reblogged it, which spread the message.
People messaged me just to tell me thank you, or that they thought I was lovely. I’m not, especially, I’m just a person with a skill set who doesn’t like to see others in pain. But I appreciate the support!
And a few people messaged me to ask if I wanted help. Or to tell me that they wanted to knit as well. SO.
We are forming the Carol Corps Yarn Brigade. We will get you your Carol stuff as quickly as we can.
More than a couple people asked if they could donate. To help keep the movement going. And this made me pretty much want to cry. Because it’s so beautiful that people want to offer support to perfect strangers, to help us all wrap the world in a big Carol Hug.
If YOU would like to donate, you can do so, I guess, by PayPal HERE. I understand that the holidays are fast approaching, and that most of us don’t have a ton of extra cash to go around, so I will NOT be upset if people don’t donate. But if you are searching for a way to help, or if the post from yesterday moved you and you’d like to help share the love, that would be great.
Let’s go punch some dinosaurs.
i guess you could say i’m…
ready for winter
Marvel Pet Coats by missfit1023
So after watching the Winter Soldier trailer (*cough* about 300 times *cough*), I got so overwhelmed by feels, I had no choice but to funnel my fangirl energy into making a Commander Rogers outfit for Steve bear.
In case anyone was wondering, the edge of fangirl insanity has officially been found, and it lies somewhere just prior to the point where you sew functional pockets for your teddy bear’s utility belt. And teddy bear-sized fingerless gloves. And embroider a shield. And spend about 13 hours over two days doing all of that.
Also, way prior to the point where you start planning a Director Stark uniform for his Tony bear to wear as soon as you have the energy to start sewing again.
PS - The teddy bear Commander Rogers outfit is now available at my Etsy shop, too. Because of reasons.
More Funko Pop Avengers inspired cookies, this time, Hulk and Fury.
I had a lot of fun giving the Hulk slightly different facial expressions by tweaking his eyebrows.
