Cupcake Pincushion



Supplies needed:

2 pieces of felt (1 of each color)
Ribbed material
scrap felt for bottom
needle and thread
red pom pom
ribbon



Step 1: Fold each piece of felt in half lengthwise, and in half again.



Step 2: Layer one color on top of the other, leaving the bottom layer about a half inch longer.



Step 3: Tightly roll the two colors together and pin.



Step 4: Trim the excess off the side and trim the bottom so the cupcake sits flat.



Step 5: Measure the ribbed material around the felt and sew into a tube. It works best if you're able to double the material.



Step 6: Place the tube about a half inch from the top of the felt and loosely stitch in place.


Step 7: Turn ribbed material right side out and trim the excess off the bottom, leaving enough material to hot glue down.



Step 8: Hot glue a circle of scrap felt on the bottom.



Step 9: Accessorize with a cherry and some trim.
