It's a Blog Hop Party with Cake!

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways I Don't know about you but I am busy trying to get those Christmas gifts done. Santa's work shop has been in full swing!  I thought for the blog hop I would share a cute little stocking stuffer I am making for the girls in my life.  Not only is a cute stocking stuffer, but it would be cute for birthdays or anytime you want to give someone a cupcake! A calorie free cupcake! So here is what you will need;

 2 -  4"x12" pieces of fabric from your stash
scrap piece of batting 4" x 12"
rick rack (optional)
lollipop (I found mine at Walgreen's)
a pair fluffy, thick socks 
cardboard coffee cozy from your favorite coffee shop

Using your cardboard coffee cozy as a template, trace around it.  
The top and bottom lines will be your sewing lines.

I trimmed up the top to a quarter inch from the sewing line so I
can use it as a guide for placing the rick rack. Layer cozy right sides
together on the batting

Sew on the 'bottom' line....

On the 'top' line.... place the rick rack between the layers and sew on
the line... (remember, do not sew the side seams)

Trim your seams to a 1/4 inch. Turn right side out and iron.

Here's the tricky part.... one side of your cozy may be bigger the the other, no worries!
On the larger side turn under a 1/4" and iron.... then tuck the smaller edge in and sew an 1/8th inch
top stitch catching all of the layers.

Here I have the rolled up fuzzy socks and coffee cozy....
ready to put together. Stuff the sock in the cozy and
arrange to look like frosting, tuck in the lollipop to top it off.

Voila! A Gourmet cupcake!

The baking continues....
