All of the projects in the Sweet Treat Special are made with a 5″ x 7″ hoop, then assembled with tabs and glue. Detailed instructions are included for each project.
Sew Sweet – These magnetic cupcake pincushions are deliciously sweet and so fun to make! The top of the cupcake has pockets to hold four magnets, or you can leave them out for a traditional pincushion. The magnets are quite handy – use them for metal bobbins, snips, pins, tweezers, etc. Use different fabric and make holiday pincushions, or fill them with candy!
Sundae Stash – Use your stash fabric to make this pretty but functional treat. This delicious Sundae has a little chamber hiding under the toppings to hold your sharp pins and needles. They look so pretty in my sewing room next to my cupcake pincushions!
Candy Cones – Make these pretty cones for any occasion. The top opens, and the cones can be filled with candy (or Fiberfil if you prefer). They are big enough to hold a handful of candy – mini candy bars will fit, too. Hang them on your Christmas tree for a quick, easy treat. Make them for your New Year’s Party favors! Wouldn’t they be perfect for a bridal shower or wedding? Change the colors, and you have an easy project for any occasion.
CLICK HERE to find my amazing SNIPS. You will need them to cut around all the little tabs. They’re super sharp, and they have a serrated edge, so they cut fabric! I used this WASH AWAY STABILIZER to make all of the pieces in all of the Sweet Treats.
These designs are automatically available as a download. If you’d like a CD or USB in addition to your download, you can choose that option at checkout.
