What was your inspiration?
My neighbor had asked me about making a cupcake pin cushion as I have been teaching her how to quilt. I researched many options online and decided I wanted to make a compilation of several I have seen and add ideas I also had from covering baskets and other crafts over the years. She made the yellow cupcake and I made the pink. We had a great time together making the cupcakes.
What are you most proud of?
I just enjoyed sharing the craft with my neighbor and the end product of course is always a great reward.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be careful with the glue gun since it is used alot in making this project.
