Cupcake Cushion



















Last month I was lucky enough to win some fabulous blog candy from the lovely Deirdre included in the Candy was the large cupcake stamp from Hero Arts and as soon as I saw it I knew it was the perfect size for a bit of applique!  In the UK cupcakes are so fashionable at the moment and so are fun decorative cushions.  I have made this as a Christmas present for my DD, I know she is far to busy at the moment to check out my blog so I feel safe to show you.






















I am really pleased with the result, as you can see I have added a few sequins and beads to add a little sparkle. I am going to enter it in Novembers challenge at Hero Arts as part of the challenge is handmade gifts.
