Cupcake Pincushion

Supplies needed:

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

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.
