Things to do concerning cookies (2): Oreos

Note: If this is your first time to TotalFluff, please visit this brief explanation. Thanks!

Hello, Fluffsters! Happy Monday! I hope your week is starting well.

As you may recall, I’m doing a mini blog-series on things to do concerning cookies.

Today, I’m going to talk about…

Things to do concerning Oreos.

1) if you’re using Firefox, you can add the plural form to your dictionary. Unless you’re slightly insane like me, and somewhat enjoy having red underlines in your text on words that you know exist. Like heteroskedasticity. There are few things quite so satisfying as being smarter than your web-browser’s dictionary.

2) Eat the oreo whole. As in, both chocolate and white filling. Together. Or, you could…

3) …Separate the oreo. As in, separate the chocolate cookie part from the creamy filling part.

If you want to go epic, you can do it with a specially designed gun/slingshot.

4) Crochet fake oreos. Then give them to friends. (That’s great for christmastime cookie exchanges. I was able to give my fellow high-school girls some “guaranteed calorie-free cookies” a few years ago.)

5) Make Oreo Truffles. Even without being dipped in chocolate, these things are scary delicious. I can’t recommend them enough. Especially since they are so easy!

So, there you go! I hope you have fun doing stuff that relates to oreo cookies!

Yarn! It’s Practically Finished!

Hello, Fluffsters! Happy Thursday.

Last night I didn’t have that much time to write this post, because I was a little bit too caught up with arts and crafts. And by that, I mean I was FINISHING MY FIRST HOME-SPUN YARN!!! (I’m a bit excited, could you tell?)

No. Really? You’re excited?

I know. Oddest thing, right?

Anyways, here’s a picture of my new yarn hanging up to dry.

Blue hand spun yarn.

It’s hanging up to dry

Isn’t it lovely? I’m hoping I have enough to make a hat with it.

I’m also really looking forward to seeing how my undyed yarn that I’m currently making comes out. I personally haven’t dyed anything before, so it’ll be an interesting experiment… I’ll be sure to let you know in a few months once I actually do it.

Anyways, Fluffsters, happy Thursday! I hope you have a fantastic day and a wonderful rest of your week.

Fabric Finds: Food

Note: If this is your first time to TotalFluff, please visit this brief explanation. Thanks!

Hello, Fluffsters! Happy Tuesday!

I’m just going to dive right in.

I’ve mentioned I like to sew, right? I mean, I made that DIY flower wreath, and all. One of my goals in life is to eventually make my version of the Pirates Elizabeth Swan dress, and actually wear it somewhere. (That’s not likely to happen for a while since materials are incredibly expensive, and the pattern quite complicated. But I can dream, right?)

Anyways, today’s post is a discussion of fabric. More to the point, a discussion of food themed fabric.

Until yesterday, (well, today as I’m writing this) I didn’t even know fabric with a food theme even existed. But due to exploring fabric.com, I came across an entire section of food printed fabric.

This sparked a desire I never even knew I had.

I now really want to make a waffle-print skirt. Or dress. Or maybe a skirt/handbag combo.

Actually, I’m not picky. A similar sort of thing with pancakes, donuts, sprinkles, and, especially, CheeseIts. Not Bacon & Eggs, though. That’s just silly. (The grilled cheese, though… That’s tempting!) I can only imagine what my school would have done if I’d walked into the cafeteria wearing anything made from “Michael Miller Bon Appetit Accounts Flax” fabric. (Bon Appetit’s our cafeteria supplier.)

Fresh Strawberry fabric actually looks like it might make a really cute summertime outfit. Especially for a younger child. As would basically anything watermelon.

And personally? A coffee print would make a wonderful computer case holder. Or bag for a college student. (Wouldn’t you agree?)

I was, alas, unable to find any prints with eggplants or steak on Fabric.com. I don’t know what I’d have done with a fabric with either of those foods on them, besides laugh, but even laughing would be worth it.

How about you, Fluffsters? Any favorite food-fabric you’ve seen that you love? (Or hate? I don’t mind either!)

Or have you seen any clothes made from some of these novelty fabrics? I’d love to hear about it!

Have a great rest of your week!
