I hope you all joined me for the the skirt tutorial and the tutorial for the Very Hungry Caterpillar Applique. If not, just scroll down.
You could very easily leave the hole in the cupcake out and it would work for any First Birthday for a boy or a girl.
I came up with the design for the drawing of the cupcake on my own. I decided to use fabrics that would match the skirt, so I used some of the green scraps from the Caterpillar for the cupcake top and a scrap of the denim for the cupcake bottom. I used the same fabric as the eyes and head for the candle and flame.
