This simple cupcake is a delight to whip up, and best of all, it is guilt free! Have fun creating your unique flavored cupcakes and create designer wrappers with all the beautiful printed fabrics available at your favorite fabric store. The original project is designed to be a potholder and a special bonus project will show you how to transform the original pattern so that you can create a coordinating hot pad. This basic cupcake class is filled with many hidden surprises. Sewists of all skill levels are bound to learn something new in this class. Michelle added some special ingredients to this class and begins by showing you 3 different techniques designed to teach you how you can preserve original patterns. By the way, it is so nice to practice these techniques on a smaller project rather than a full-size clothing pattern. With one of these techniques, you will discover a way to create a dozen cupcakes in no time. Another technique is often used in couture clothing construction. These new skills will be sure to come in handy for future sewing projects. You will also learn how to transform the original project and give it a whole new look and purpose in just a few simple steps. Michelle also revamped one of the hardest steps in this project and made it a cinch using a technique she learned from Sue Hausmann. It involves layering your fabric in a certain order, sewing it together, and turn it right side out with perfect results, even on curves!! Cupcakes are very popular these days. This cupcake project is so easy to put together and it will add a beautiful touch to your home decor...not just your kitchen. It makes a fun birthday or hostess gift by filling the “pocket” with small gifts.
