Last week I hit the jackpot at Hancock Fabrics. The usual “senior discount” they offer on Wednesdays was bumped up from 10% to 25% AND it included all sale and clearance fabric. I stocked up.
One of the fabrics I purchased was for one of my favorite bakers – Cake Livs – who is also my granddaughter. She uses a cupcake for her logo, and while this isn’t exactly THE cupcake on her business card, I thought she’d love it.
I decided to use the fabric for a tablecloth. I used a decorative stitch to go around the edges and that was it. What else could I do?
This weekend, I saw a package of twelve flour sack towels at Sam’s Club for around $12. I’d been eyeing them for myself, but once I got them home, I had the idea to cut some of the cupcakes from the tablecloth and applique them on the towels.
Here’s the finished product.
Less than $5 for the fabric
$2.00 for the towels
Total: Around $7
I could have personalized this a bit and used my basic sewing machine to add “Cake Livs” to the towels, but the fabric is so thin that it caused problems. I think she’ll like it anyway.
