Cupcake Pincushion



The ABBA challenge today is to make something using felt, I had wanted to make a cupcake pin cushion from felted jumpers but so far haven't managed to find any nice coloured wool jumpers to felt so here's my chance, try it with commercial felt. I rolled two doubled layers of felt together and stitched the end, added button covered with red felt to make the cherry ( I realise that I picked a red button to cover , why? when no one would see it anyway) then gave the cake a lavender felt case and a matching ribbon .

What a clever idea to make a cupcake this way! Love what you've done and how the pink and white make "swirls". I would have picked a red button too, so it's not just you!! Great work and thanks for taking part in our challenge.
Love
