Cupcake mania

A few months ago, after Gymboree launched theirs Cupcake cutie line, I became totally obsessed with cupcakes,LOL!
We don't have any Gymboree store(sneef, sneef) neither in my country and neither in Italy(where we are going very offten, as my hubby is Italian;), but thanks to internet and ebay, it's easy to do a few clicks on-line and receive some favourite items.
So, as I'm also obsessed with fabrics, I tried to get the cutest cupcake fabric and my result was this

I payed more than 20 $ per yard, but when I saw it, I simply had to have it!It is an Japanese imported fabric, 100 % cotton and is TDF!
I ordered it in red and pink;) and started creating this set in red

and this one in pink

I also made some fabric buttons from scraps

Of course, I will do some hair goodies and 2 of the red ones I sew on the back part of the halter bodice part...of the red set

Well, the sets are still unfinished, as I'm doing a special costume for a special customer as priority for her BD, but will hopefully finish them soon and list them on Ebay;)

WOW Katarina...Is this for the upcoming button launch? It is absolutely beautiful and so fun! I just love the fabric buttons and the crochet chain accents on the cupcakes!! Your work is simply amazing and so detailed!! I was actually thinking of doing a cupcake top for the button launch too! I just need to start on it first! ;)

Love it Katrina! Your work is always so detailed - it is neat to see it in the "in process" stage and not 100% finished...
