    I had a little free time today and just purchased this pattern so thought I would try my hand at it. I am just not happy where I sew the opening where I had to turn it inside right. Hopefully with some practice it will look better...just thought I would share with you...thanks for looking!

    I made my first one last night too and agree that I don't like the spot where I sewed the opening closed. My daughter saw it this afternoon and took it with her, so it must have been OK. Thanks for sharing.

    Those are really nice. I don't think they look bad where you sewed them, but I understand how you feel. I do the same thing!!!

    I have made many of these but also didn't like the way they went together so now I do this...
    1. Stitch the "frosting" across the scalloped bottom only but layer as follows...thin batting (flannel works good) then the fabric right sides together...turn right side out and press...add rick rack or what ever as desired.

    2. Take the front of the cake part and sew the vertical lines through these two layers.

    3. Now layer as follows...insulbrite (shiny side down) the back layer of fabric (right side up)...now the "frosting" (right side up)...pin your hanging loop in the center of this piece...finally the "stitched" piece of the cake (right side down) Stitch around the whole thing leaving an opening at the straight bottom to turn. Turn right side out and topstitch all around the whole thing. This method makes for a much smoother edge around the "frosting" part.

    The only issue is where the "frosting" meets the cake...you want to make sure it is scooted up about a seam allowance so it doesn't get caught in the turn where the frosting meets the cake. Hope this makes sense.

    Very cute....
    You might want to leave your opening on the top round and not in the scallop area..just a FYI
    How cute to send someone that is feeling down....
    Thank you for showing us!!
