OK so after seeing this project http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=246604.0 yesterday I decided I HAD to make a cupcake version because a) I am obsessed with cupcakes and b) I am always sitting on my needles.

This is done slightly different though. The outer edge and top aren't sewn together, it is glued in place because I wanted the "paper" cup to look seperate from the "cupcake". The sprinkles are french knots, I've never done them before because everybody has always said they are hard...but they're so not!!! The cherry on top is a mini version of the actual cupcake, done in exactly the same way. It's even stuffed with a little bit of stuffing hehe.

Anyway I couldn't decide which picture was better out of these two. Please excuse my insanely liney hands (i'm only 21...I know they look like they belong to an 80 year old woman haha).

Thanks for looking.

Soooo cute! I love that you didn't sew the outer edge and top together. It looks much more cupcake-y the way you did it! And I admire your French knotting skill! Smiley

The bottom part is just a little round cut to the size of the bottlecap and then blanket stitched onto the side part. Hope that made sense haha. It was my first time doing blanket stitch also. I've only ever used a whip stitch to sew together felt. It's not as neat as I would have liked but I'll try and get a photo a bit later so you get the general gist of it.

That pincushion is super neat! I am glad you have a place to put your needles now....those things can be dangerous! Great job  Cheesy
