slice of cake pincushion

One of my favorite ladies was having a birthday today and I needed a project....

so this is what I made for her...

What could be better for a birthday than a slice of cake pincushion?
I looked all over to find a pattern and saw one "Slice of Cake" by Cindy Taylor Oates. It's a Taylor Made designs version, but didn't have the patience to wait for a pattern.

chocolate brown, and polka dots seemed like the right choice in colors and style. It didnt' take much fabric, I just used scraps and recycled ribbon. I made a bunch of those twisted roses a while back and found the green one just waiting for me.

It almost makes me want to go make a real chocolate cake...

I like it so much, I might just make another. Watch the crafts or projects section for a how to. (yep, back to blogging... you knew I couldn't stay away for too long.)

In case you were wondering????

I haven't just been sleeping my life away (instead of blogging...)

It's just that it's SUMMER!
Ya gotta love it!

I am, however, getting the itch to craft or sew or something... so don't avoid me for too long.

anyone need a cake.

Oh my... just saw this cake on a blog and REALLY WANT TO MAKE IT.

Anyone have a need for a fancy cake?

the tutorial showed the inside and it looks like the cake was strawberry chocolate swirled, so when you cut into it it's stripped.
