One of my first cakes was a sewing/crafting cake. I didn't know much about what I was doing but had a blast attempting it.

I made "sewing needles" from melted white choc. and painted them w/ silver dust; made a measuring tape with a long strip of fondant marked w/ food pens; spools of thread w/ fondant and the thread was melted choc. piped around the spools; scissors and buttons were chocolate flow; material was fondant. HTH a little. I think I got the button and scissor template from The Whimsical Bakehouse book.

I borrowed a big ole book called "The Ultimate Book of Birthday Cakes" from my library (it has a clown cake on the cover) and on page 154-156 there is an amazing sewing box cake with detailed directions. Its really great--there is even a needle threaded through a little scrap of "fabric". It does call for some pastillage, but looking at it, everything could be done with gumpaste.

I'll try to scan the image for you and post...

Thank you all, even though I did not do the sewing basket this was what I eventually did still using some sewing accessories, inspired by someone on CC. Oops image too large it says, anyway its the cinderella cake in my photos.
