More Guessing......Couldn't wait!

It occurred to me after I posted this morning that you might think I came up with the clever "minimalist" form of SW characters. I was going to wait until tomorrow to reveal my inspiration, but I decided rather than have anyone think I did this on my own, I would just go ahead and post the rest of the pics and share my source of inspiration.

My son, Kyle, wanted me to make these SW character cookies for a friend. First we were talking about making the actual characters.....but I didn't feel comfortable with that.... both because of copyright and because they are so complex. Kyle showed me these pics on Flickr of Sam Sterling-Sutton's awesome "minimalist" versions. You can find Sam's Flickr pics here and his Etsy posters here. I asked Sam for permission to use his idea, and he graciously agreed to it. 

Here's additional characters......

and the whole crew together....

I was amazed at how many of you knew the characters right off the bat. That is great.....because it means they are recognizable. :)

I get to make some autumn quilts later this week.....so be looking for them this weekend.

So cute!! I had my 8-year old identify them and he knew right off the bat. He then said, "Do something else." Meaning, create more cookie characters for me to guess. Ha!! Thanks, Pam, for continuing to share your talents with us. Amazing.
