Tea and cake?

I bought the American book softies and the kit from Amazon, couldn't resist. With the kit you get felt and thread to make a cup cake. So I did!! I also made the tea bag.

Stitching comments: The cup cake was entirely hand sewn with whip stitch which I haven't really done before. I'm not use to having my join stitching exposed like that. The cream was a bit tricky but once I worked it out it was fine.
The tea bag was really easy, it's so cute. These two are definitely going to be on my gift making list.

Lessons Learned: Whip stitch

Pattern: both from softies, Therese Laskey. Cup cake design by Aoi Horn, tea bag designed by Heather Pudewa

Mini choc strawberry cup cake?



I bought a book called Warm Fuzzies by Betz White. It has 30 felted projects. I love this book I want to make everything, but do I want to start another craft? As I was gogling over the pages I really wanted to make the cup cakes but had no materials. So I was inspired to make it up with normal every day felt, and finished it off with my own cup cake patty pan design. I just need to get the look right now.

Pattern: Inspired by Betz White, made the rest up myself.

Treeling


I made this for no one in particular. When my son sore it he loved it, so now its his.

Stitching comments: I did the entire top of the tree by hand, next time i think i will use the machine. I didn't stuff it enough either!!
