I made these little skirts for my five year old granddaughters. One has a Halloween birthday and the other a late September. Both mamas are into Halloween. The cupcake pillow I embroidered and then stippled. I put a zipper in the back of the pillow, my first. It was quite easy. The tutorial came from Piece N Quilt. If I wasn't so lazy, I would get up and get the info. Email me if you are interested.
