|My embroidered cupcake!|
I love the fabric patterns and colors I chose for this month's "Party with Patrick" project.
It's a small wall banner with a birthday cupcake celebration design.
It's suppose to include a child's birthday age in felt numerals (number one through nine)...either sewed directly on for that special birthday or removable in order to change for each child's birthday celebration.
I chose to leave it plain without the birthday year since we don't have children or grandchildren.
For now we'll use it for Hubby and me.
Maybe later I will pass it along to our grandnieces.
Of course I had to embellish it with my own touches.
I added a delicious two inch additional border in a dark pink printed fabric to give it more POP and make it a little larger in size.
It is appliqued in satin and blanket stitches of purple, turquoise and yellow embroidery threads and straight-lined quilted in white polyester thread.
I machine-stitched the binding down.
What can I say...too lazy to hand sew it.
I added a label on the back so I won't forget when I made it.
It is soooo cute!
Remember the hexagons I'm crocheting?
I decided to limit my colors to red, a darker turquoise and white (all from my stash).
The pattern combinations are endless.
Who knows what pattern arrangement I will end up with...that's the fun of creating!
Have a lovely weekend!
