Cupcake applique samples

A selection of samples i've been working on which were inspired by drawing my cupcakes.

Bon Voyage Katie and Chris!

I Said goodbye to my very dear friend Katie Devenish and hubby Chris who are cycling around the world for a few years and finally finishing at New Zealand. They have a blog should you fancy following along. They are trying to make it as interactive as possible by sending and receiving gifts along the way and by documenting every step of the way.

I love my Studio

This is a montage of pictures of my studio so that i can show you all angles. I had a trip to Ikea a couple of weeks ago to get a couple of new desks and check out the little step stool! I've just tidied it and now have evidence that sometimes....just sometimes, it's clutter free.
I feel ready now to start on my presentation for Monday and then back to sewing more fabric cakes and plates.

Four fancy cakes

I'm definately getting better at the cupcakes, here are 4 more i made to help to get to know my subject. I've now drawn these and produced samples using scraps of fabrics which i will scan in and post this week.
I went for High Tea at Charlotte's Tea House in Truro on Saturday to live the experience!

Following on from the soft sculptured birds and birdhouses, i am looking at creating fabric play tents with digital printed walls and soft sculptured, interactive add -ons inside. The first is a tent suitable for tea parties.
This afternoon i made loads of cupcakes to photograph, draw and eat. Here are just a few. I'm feeling rather sick now but will be making more tomorrow in bright colours.
