    I saw this on the cover of the Spring 09 Quilts & More, and just had to make one! Took me all morning, with the usual interruptions when DH is home. It uses Timtex to stand up, but I used scraps since the pieces were only 3 1/8" wide, and I don't have it stuffed yet. We'll go looking for crushed walnut shells later, I'd like to try those.

    Here's a link to the cover of the magazine:

    that is too cute and to think you were able to make it from scraps you had on hand. Looks good enough to eat :lol: I haven't heard of stuffing with crushed walnut shells before.
    Great job :!:

    Now THAT is cute! You did a really nice job on it, too.
    I would love to make one of those or a cupcake one.

    You know, if someone was going to make some of those to add to their items for a craft show, it wold be really pretty to make a bunch and arrange them together to appear as a whole...for styling. I don't know what size it is, but it might take quite a large plate to put them on to really set it off!

    Thanks for that link, too. I will definately be saving that link.
