This is the first of my ‘must do’ projects which I’ve known about for months yet am leaving till the very last minute!
Darn It & Stitch is a lovely little sewing shop tucked away down a back street in Oxford. I’ve only actually been there once but will definitely be visiting again next time I’m in Oxford (and may even make a special trip to do one of their workshops). Their first birthday is on Saturday and they’ve asked people to make a Stitched Birthday Cake – stitched, knitted, quilted, embroidered or crocheted, pretty much anything goes!
I spent some time trawling around on the internet for cupcake pincushion tutorials this evening, and the cake below is an amalgam of about four different cakes. It’s not the neatest (I could have done with white fleece or felt for the top, and to not have been in such a rush!) but I hope the lovely DI&S ladies will like it. Hopefully it will sneak its way into some of the photos that will inevitably be taken at Saturday’s birthday party.
I’ll pop it in the post tomorrow and hope it gets there on time!
