Sweet Slice

This is my version of the Sweet Slice pincushion pattern. My son said he wasn't tempted to eat it, since it is a chocolate cake. So I suppose that leaves more for me right? :)

The pattern called for crushed walnut shells for the stuffing, but I don't have any stores near me that carry that, so I had to stuff it with polyfil. I really would like to try that crushed walnut. I think it might sit better on the table and not be so wobbly. I will have to wait for my next trip to the "big city" and hopefully I can find it there. For now, polyfil will have to do.

this is adorable and looks good enough for me to eat! a friend uses aquarium gravel to give stuffed items some weight. depending on where you live, things like walnut shells can attract little critters. yuk!

You'll find it at the pet store. It's commonly used for bird and lizard cages.

The pattern came from the Spring 2009 issue of Quilts and More magazine. :)
