well besides eating them...
(and yes, these below are raw vegan cupcakes)
there's the extreme cuteness factor and the pleasure of just looking at them :)
and yes, the eating of these mini-cakes,
it always comes back to that now, doesn't it?
focus now, & back to cute...
so you can hardly blame me for making a little girl's dress
with cupcakes smocked across the front... (no calories involved)
here is the pattern & fabric i used
i'm not sure if you can tell the base dress fabric is a pale yellow.
the sprinkles are little beads; sweet!!!
front & back of finished dress:
and then the best part was putting it on that special little red-headed girl:
my dh thinks it's the best project i've done to date.
i must admit i myself was also very pleased with the results :)
the magazine "australian smocking and embroidery"
has the most beautiful projects
and they look top quality when done,
but the magazine is sooo expensive.
shipping from australia & all....
it's like smocking 'crack' to me,
when ever i see one that i do not have...
i have to own it...
keeping this habit up will send me to the poor house.
it's a sad thing to see...
keep me away from ebay at all costs!
ps. if anybody has an unwanted box of them,
just send them on over
and i will happily take them off your hands, tee hee..
my next blog will be about coffee
especially for those who really don't want to give it up, etc...
stay tuned! :)
