Pipe Dreams

I've been practising making cupcakes with perfect pink swirls of icing on top. It's actually harder than it looks to get effortlessly elegant swirls and then be able to repeat them so that all the cakes look uniform(ish!). I'm hoping to develop some things to include on a table top sale I'm hoping to attend in June and thought these cutie cupcakes would be just the thing. I'll just have to keep practising I suppose..... oh well!

Cozy's, Clothes Pegs and Carrier Bags

Having started the day thinking I'd finish the tea cozy and lavender love birds, I ended up abandoning the tea cozy and completing instead a carrier bag dispenser and clothes peg holder.

Both in coordinating fabric so I've already added them to the Etsy shop to see how they fare.

The tea cozy is still a work in progress. I did finish it but still need to address some construction issues as the lining wasn't as tidy as it could have been. The one featured in this photo eventually made it into the kitchen so will be our prototype model. Loved making it though so eager to start another one for the shop.
