Cupcake Pincushions Prep for Class

Here's an assortment waiting to be stitched up and filled.  The pink topped one is awaiting its filling.  It just got a little makeup with some beads which I have not photographed yet.  My camera is doing seriously weird things--the view screen will show waves of color.  Wacking it a few times seems to help, but now other color is not photographing well particulary white. 

I have cut out extra pieces so that I can demonstrate as the class progresses.  I'm also making 3 to fill with 3 different fillings so I can try them out.   The lavendar one above is already done and has crushed walnut shells.  The pink one I will fill with sand and I will fill one of the brown ones with emery since it is really dark colored.  Sorry, the brown fabrics have not photographed well.  They're actually rather pretty and have some gold metallic which is attractive with the greeny color.

Up next will be some photos of the other two finished cupcakes and hopefully some progress on the knit dress a few posts back!

The cupcake class looks like a lot of fun! The final product is so adorable. Will be curious to hear how all the different fillings work out.

LOL, I love the whacking of the camera! Too funny. I can't wait to see the pincushions. They look great. What a lot of work you are putting into it!

Those cupcake pin cushions are the cutest things I've seen yet.
