Felt Mini Cupcakes?

This morning I made a felt cupcake from one of Maddie's craft books. This was very easy to make. However, I think it looks like a flower instead of a cupcake.

To make this you will need felt, stuffing and cross stitch floss.
Next make a circle and icing pattern.

I also made little circles for cherries.

You will need two circles the same size. First decorate the top circle by stitching sprinkles (or a design) on top.

Next, stictch around the outside. Leave a gap for a very small amount of stuffing.

After the stuffing, finish stitching around the circle and pull the thread on both ends.

 Knot your thread and flip the sides down.

I added a magnet. You could make a pin cushion, broach or attach it to clothing.

Have a great day!

Finally Doing Something...

Hey Gang! I'm still trying to get off the lazy train. I've finally started some projects. Today I made a basket liner for the first time. I was very happy with how it turned out. This was an easy/quick project. I'll post the tutorial soon.

Do you like my wire baskets?
They are from an old deep freeze.

Have a restful night.

Few New Things

Hello All. Hope you've had a good week. Mine has been quite busy.
I've been trying to get some tasks completed around the house, especially outside. The rain has been constant. I did transplant some tiger lillies infront of the side porch.

(Then I looked-up and saw my next project.)

Maddie has also been busy.


I have gotten a couple of new (but old) things recently. I thought I'd share them with you. As always Mother found them for me.

Have a great week!
