I love making aprons, they are whimsical in a way that most other clothing can't be. So after completing a pie apron, I decided it was time to make one with cupcakes.  It is in my second favorite color, neapolitan, roughly based on a pattern I had around, and I used my roomate's  painting skill to finish it off.
here's a shot of me wearing it

and here is a detail shot of the cupcake/pocket


Any feedback is always welcome

No, they are painted on, though stitching is a good idea

wisted  Cheesy  have you already posted the pie apron on craftster?

i agree with ari-, the wrappers look to me like they were quite simple to stitch, yet the effect is really impressive  Smiley and ari-, your icon is just beautiful!

Thanks for the compliments!

I did post the other apron up on Craftster here : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302744.msg3460883#msg3460883

The wrappers were easy to sew but hard to iron just right.
