Punkin' Cupcake (Destash Along Project #13)Wednesday, June 2, 2010
It has been awhile since I've done a destash along project. This past weekend I decided to continue with my machine sewing and dug through my fabric stash to make this little sweetie:
I love my little cupcake plushie. I didn't have any light colored fabric for the top, so I used some left over Halloween fabric I had purchased last year. It really looks very fall-ish. Ooh, I can't wait for fall. Only 4 months away!!!
For the bottom, I used some ribbed brown fabric I got at Walmart several years ago. I am so glad I finally found a use for it.
The eyes and cherry are from my felt stash. The mouth is embroidered on and the cheeks are eyeshadow. I had to use pink because the red didn't show up very well.
It was a very simple pattern, though I did have to use my seam ripper once. I sewed the top and bottom on the wrong side. It gave me lots of practice on removing stitches. :)
If you'd like to make your own cupcake plushie, visit Bit of Whimsy Dolls for the pattern. There are a lot of really cute patterns, but this one looked to be the easiest. That is what I need now, easy patterns!
