A cupcake, an Owl and some fabric

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been asked to make some Cupcake decorations.
I'd done other cupcake stuff before but not hanging decorations.
So I thought I'd have a play around before doing the real thing and this is what I came up with

I'm quite pleased with it, especially for a first attempt. After I've done this order, I plan to make a few more of these.

Then on to the next big thing..... Owls!

He's looking a bit scrunched up due to being hugged to death by middle child. I quite like him too. I've started on a pink and purple one but I can't decide if it looks a bit urm..... odd shall we say.

Now I need to pick some bones with a certain lady.

Mrs Katy from I'm a Ginger Monkey. I wish she would stop linking fabric shops. My poor purse cannot take it anymore! I gave in to one of the links, a shop online called Fabric rehab (there really should be a fabric rehab) and I bought these little bits

I think this fabric will turn into doorstops. I love the pink and green combo.

This I have no idea what I'm going to do with but it was an absolute bargain. Its lovely because its quite thick.

And as for this, well it seems most people with a fabric problem has caved and bought this fabric. It is gorgeous. The only problem is that its rather thin and see through, so I'm not entirely sure what I will do with it. I guess it would make a good lining for a bag but then it seems a bit wrong to hide it that way.

I'm sure I'll find some use for it!

I'm going to post my Owl Swap gifts next week so I'll be able to show my little creation when its arrived at its destination!

Katy at I'm a Ginger Monkey needs to be carrying a 'danger to your bank balance' warning with all her wonderful fabric shop links.

I especially love the pink and green fabric too. The cupcake is so pretty. x
