My Cupcake Creation
Thursday, January 11, 2007
As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

This must be the first time I am so ahead of getting my swap package together.. it could be because I was so eager to get my ideas rolling. After narrowing it down.. I decided to make a bag for my wonderful swap partner. It's a little difficult making something for someone you have absolutely no knowledge about. Insha'Allah I hope she likes it.

For the cupcake pic on the bag, I first drew out some ideas, then stencilled on the one I liked. Insha'Allah I would like to do a tutorial in the future so others can take a try at stencilling, the easy way. I am very happy with the results, and had a blast making it, so I'm thinking of maybe sewing a few more to sell with the cupcake pic or similar.



The rest of my package includes:
:: A blank handmade card.. that was also just as fun, don't be surprised if you see more posted, one of these days
:: A recipe for some Vanilla Fairy Cakes, insha'Allah I shall also post that recipe up one day


How is everyones cupcake creations coming along??

Please remember to email me a picture of it before you mail it out, so I can put them all together in one photo album for everyone to check out, also let me know if it is okay to add your blog name (and link)/or name to your pic.

oh oh oh oh.....! I didn't realize we could share before we send it. I really want to know someones opinion about something i made and want to send. I love it just hope they do too. I am done with my package too...just questioning one thing i am sending. I'm going to post it on my blog for opinions...that's okay then?

Salaam,

I like the bag. I was so excited with working on this. I found a couple things on the net that I wanted to make. I've had them done for a couple of weeks. They have been sitting in my cedar chest, safe from my little boys. I have to go out to do things tomorrow. I just need to get a box and drop it off at the post office. I will take a picture today, after the oldest is at school and the other two are napping.

Wa'alaykum as-salaam wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dear sisters,

Jazak'Allah for the update on your progress and the feedback.

Wayfarer, I figured if the person didn't know who they are receiving from.. it doesn't matter if we post it or not (I suppose, it may be a little of a tease).. :) I would love to see what you are upto, insha'Allah I shall check your blog and comment.

Ma'salaama

Assalaamu'alaykum wa rahmatu Allah my dear

Awesome bag! :) Masha'Allah.

The great thing about it though, (apart from the neat, professional, tailored finish *ahem*) is that it's entirely your design (with cute hearts..I mean.. cross bones ;o) and everything..hehe).

I really like it! But you already know that ;o).

I LOVE the purse. Another great idea. I have plenty of plain purses lying around, and stencilling'd personalize them. Thanks for the idea.

Maybe you can join us for a future swap :) I checked on the challah recipe in one of the books I have, and found it!! Is it made only on holidays/special occasions??
