I ♥ Cupcakes

Beginning of this year I swore I would cut down on my fabric purchases, except for custom orders. I promised myself I was going to use up what I have, even re-and up-cycle a couple of fabrics - not easy for someone who admits to being a fabric junkie ☺

Last week I went into the city for an appointment, and of course I couldn't pass up the chance to visit the largest fabric store there! It was hard, but I actually managed to leave the store without the usual huge bag full of assorted fabrics! I only bought a few supplies, i.e. boring zippers, which doesn't count, right? ☺ 

Back home I have used up a fair amount of my fabric stash for gifts and such, plus I made some pencil cases with appliquéd motifs (great way to use up scraps), one of which is my cupcake pencil case you see here:

I will be making a few of these with other motifs. All my motifs are drawn freehand on heat-and-bond paper, which I then proceed to cut out and iron onto the the main fabric. I don't use a template, so even if I repeated a motif, they wouldn't look exactly alike.

Happy Tuesday!

  3. Very cute case! :) I think I've gotten very good this year about not getting WAY too much stuff that I don't need at the craft store. But it's hard!

    Thanks for your very kind words, once again, and for sharing your personal story. I needed that so very much.

  5. So cute, Duni!! Since I can't have cupcakes, and could atleast put my pencils in a case that boasts a cupcake, right? That's calorie-free! :)

  6. I am doing the same thing--making zippered bags and plushies. I cannot think of a better way to use up this stash and the scraps. Then, I will be bold or bad, and buy more fabric! Do you think we have a problem?

  13. The cupcake is so cute! Excellent job!

    As for staying away from buying fabric, that's a very difficult thing to do when we have a fabric addiction! We need that 12 step program!
