Hi there!! I have discovered a new crafting addiction....FELTING!! It all started last year when I discovered Betz White's creations on-line. I went to my local library & checked out her first book, Warm Fuzzies, to see if this would be something fun to try. I was hooked! I ended up purchasing her book & started collecting wool sweaters to re-purpose. I didn't really know how I would like the "hunting & collecting" part of it, but it is fun all in itself. I already have collected a pretty big stash. I love washing up the sweaters & seeing how they "felt" after washing. They really take on a softer & fuzzy appearance. I hope you don't mind me sharing my creations with you along the way. This is my first cupcake pincushion (I think they are meant more for decorative purposes) & will be making several more. This was my trial & error one. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for stopping by today! :)
Here is a different view (you can click to see larger) of the cupcake so you can see the swirls a little better. I need to get some pretty pins to use for sprinkles. I used some tiny heart ones here, I may add some glitter to them for a little sparkle.
Supplies Used: Felted Wool Sweaters; Felted Ball for Cherry (on-line source); Leaf pins (Jo Anns); Velvet Ric Rac Ribbon (May Arts?); Heart Pins (Heidi Grace); Polka Dot paper in background (A Muse Artstamps).
