I've just given a random guy a good laugh! I was driving home from work, listening to the radio. Michael Buble 'Everything' came on, and I started singing passionately along, complete with dramatic hand gestures, and even a bit of closed eye moments (I wasn't moving at that point, due to traffic!). I suddenly looked across to realise the guy in the car next to me was watching and laughing!! Ooops!
Oh well! :o)
The project with the cupcake is now finished!! It took hours, I honestly don't know what takes me so long! Thanks for all the nice comments about the cupcake! And as for how I got the stitching so neat, Becky, I have no idea!! I had cut the cupcake shape out and ironed it onto the white fabric with bondaweb... then I came to machine stitching the zigzag around it... and I was convinced that I was going to ruin it! I honestly have no idea how it came out looking so neat! I couldn't believe my eyes! A fluke!!
So, here is the finished item:
It's a cupcake drawstring PE bag for my friend's daughter who starts school in September! It is also lined in the same pink polka dot fabric, so no raw edges to be found! It has a fuchsia pink polka dot ribbon as a hook, for hanging onto her peg.
I cross-stitched her name and zigzag stitched that onto the front of the bag - you can't even see those stitches in white against the cross-stitch material, which I was pleased with!
All in all, I'm quite pleased with it. I jut hope my friend is happy with it!!
