I personally love baking cakes! This lovely little pattern is a few of my favorite things that are used while baking.
There are kitchen supplies that are either vintage or made in pretty colors, and frosting and sprinkles! I love and enjoy the whole process. My business is made up of creating little miniature baking and food items for the kitchen so I just decided to go the next step and design embroidery projects around my favorite things in my favorite colors. This "Cake Baking" embroidery pattern is the first in my Baking Series. The other projects are already completed and awaiting the final pattern making part of the process! They are so cute and include 'Pie Baking', 'Cookie Baking', 'Bread Making' and so much more...I can't wait for you to see them all. And in February I'm opening up my Ribbonwood Cottage Little Stitches Subscription club where you can receive a new project each month with full directions and more. It is so exciting I can hardly sleep at night!
This design is simple, it is stitched or embroidered using a back stitch, diagramed how to do this in the pattern, and the key is the pretty threads and fabrics used to finish this look. The design can be placed in an oblong hoop if desired, but I show how to make this small shelf or dining room pillow using my quick techniques. I will share with you my shortcuts in each pattern I come out with. I have learned many over my 45 years of sewing.
Pattern is perfect for beginners or someone desiring a quick project.

I am a professional pattern designer, seamstress and miniature maker. As a little girl my parents gave me little toys and sewing projects to keep me quiet in church! Those interests turned into skills, and in my later life turned into a wonderful thriving business! My goal in making patterns is to make them as simple as possible, while using the prettiest fabric. Putting the two together hopefully results in a wonderful finished product or item!
