Garden Party Blog Hop

I am happy to share with you my contribution to the Garden Party Blog Hop, with a 0 calorie Yummy Cupcake and a giveaway! I have had a lot of pleasure to create and to sew it. The different textures (cream, cake, cup) allow many possibilities of fabrics and embelishments too. Try it and have fun! You can download this free pattern here.
Few tips for this pattern:
- a striped fabric is more realistic for the cup
- you can enhance the 3D effect of the cream by using fade color fabric or 2 fabrics (like I did in my block, see pict. below).

And if you really, really love cupcakes, what about sewing a cupcakes wall hanging with different flavors?

And to celebrate this wonderful Blog Hop, I have set up a giveaway for 13 patterns from my shop.
To enter, please go to my giveaway post here, or click the giveaway button on the right.

And visit the Jennifer's Blog to enjoy all this event and the wonderful blocks that have been designed for this Garden Pary. Have fun!

  1. Thank you for the nice pattern and great tips!

  2. Love it, love it!! Thank you

  3. I love this fun block, thanks so much for sharing it.

  4. I can't get this to download. It keeps looping back to the download pdf button. help...

    1. Hello AJ,
      it works perfectly well (I have downloaded right now with success) and more than 200 downloads have already been done. I can only advise you to try again (and to click on the right button: the big download button on the center of the page, NOT the small download on the top right corner that is for a software). If you still can get it, jut let me an email so I can send you back the file!
      Have a great week!

  5. Thanks for your yummy contribution to this awesome blog hop! Can you possibly suggest a source for fade fabric, either here or by e-mail? The way you used it is so realistic!

  6. It looks so yummy! I love the idea of customization and the variety this block offers.
