As promised here are my finished cupcake items. First up is the pillow which is very similar to the purple version I did awhile back. This one uses fabrics from Lecien's Durham Anew collection. Nice petite precious pale pinks for baby.
Each cupcake applique has some kind of special embellishment. This one has a little felt flower, the middle cupcake has little french knots and the one way to the right has a perfect little applique heart on top.
I hand embroidered "sweet as a cupcake" using 2 strands of a pink floss. I used the Little Days font as my template.
The burp cloths are gerber 6-ply cloth diapers that I top with the fabric and applique. It takes just a few minutes to make such an ordinary thing fancy.
Here they are all folded, wrapped in a sweet ribbon and ready to go out to my lovely mom-to-be.
Today, I'm hopefully finishing up a couple more doll quilt sets. I say hopefully because around here things tend to interrupt my progress. Things like a gallon of lemonade leaking all over the inside of the fridge, an old cat who now thinks our office carpet is his litter box, oh and 3 bored children who just have to go to the pool or they will shrivel up.
