Fruit Cream & Berries Cassis Mini Felt Cakes

Ah.... Been neglecting the blog for quite a few days. :P Being home makes me complacent - daily activities consist of eating, sleeping, onlining and watching TV. Even the fun of crafting seems to be wearing off. :/

Back in KL, I bought a Japanese craft book that shows how to make felt cakes. Tried making two cakes from there.

{ Fruit Cream Cake + Berries Cassis Cake }

There's a technique stated in the book that uses make-up blusher for dusting felt cakes to make the colours sort of nicer. I used my sis's pink blusher for the berries cassis cake sides - can see shades of darker red near the top.

{ Choo~ }

{ I like this shape :) }

It's quite tedious, making small individual parts, like little white cream blobs for the fruit cream cake. I had to cut out 45 pieces of half-circles out of white felt before I could assemble them into blobs. If there's one thing I don't like about working with felt, it's cutting out shapes. ^-^" Especially tiny ones that require patience, which is never a virtue of mine.

{ Looks so pure and fluffy ♥ }

{ Yummy ♥ }

Making these re-ignited that crafting-love in me. I hope to make more felt cakes, instead of sticking my face at the computer or on my pillow. ^o^
