Sewing DIY Party Decorations

What do you do with a scrap of cupcake fabric? Make a party decoration! A party sign to hang on the front door when it's Party Time!

The fabric is Sweet Treats in pink by Michael Miller. When I was looking up the name of this fabric I came across some free templates for beautiful applique cupcakes (I've lost the link at the moment but as soon as I find it, I will credit the author!).  Using one of the cupcake templates I made the central applique block, adding some ric rac too.

I cut out  the heart for the self cover button from the cupcake fabric. You can just see another heart in the top right hand corner of the photo above. I sewed the heart onto the solid orange fabric that was used in the cupcake applique and then covered the button.

Who doesn't love pom poms? Or is it pon poms... 

For another party idea, have a look at the Fill My Pockets Bunting. I made this for Lucy's birthday:
