Miss Symco Pin-Up Contest next month.
To begin, I should say that I did not follow all of the directions included in the kit (bad habit of mine). I had my kids save their Greek yogurt containers to use as the base. The cupcake paper was made from a 3 1/2 inch wide strip that I sewed several pleats into. The pleats are set approximately one inch apart, 1/8 at the top widening out to a 1/4 at the bottom. The strip is then wrapped around the cup and sewn together to make a tube.
So yesterday when we all got together for a car show, Peachie received the peach chocolate cupcake and Wild Kat, the cherry chocolate one. We're three weeks out from the pin-up contest, and I have to make sure my girls are happy! Honestly this was a fun, quick project. And since I don't need any more pin cushions, I was glad to know that these will be put to good use. Now I need to decide if I should sew up a new outfit for the contest...or keep working on the seat covers for my '50 Ford...?
