Birthday cupcakes

It is my birthday today so I am showing you the cupcake pincushion I made for a giveaway back when it was my blog's birthday. I am working on a tutorial which I hope to share with you as a Valentine's Day gift. If you read my other blog, we are very busy painting our living room so I don't have it quite ready yet. Please join me on Thursday for this tutorial. I will be revealing a giveaway that has to do with the tutorial...


Do you have a heart shaped cookie cutter? Dig it out for the ready. You will need an assortment of (wool) felt in reds and pinks. You will also need two sheets of white or cream felt and threads to match all. I hope you will join in on the fun!

Edit ~ The tutorial is not to make this cupcake pincushion but a penny rug candle mat which I am going to give a slight twist to...

I've been longing for one of these cupcakes ever since I first saw it.
I'll be back tomorrow to take a look at the valentine penny rug:)
No felt of any colour here so I will be stocking up on pink and red when I go back to UK in May.
I hope you had a wonderful birthday. You certainly deserve it for all that you do for others and the generous way in which you always share your knowledge

Wow Heidi,
I am ready and waiting. I fell in love with your cupcake first time round. This is going to be so exciting - your tutorials are a real favourite of mine (your tutorials are my one weakness - now where have I heard that before..haha)
Finishing with some warm and wonderful birthday wishes :>)
Hugs, Angela
