Sewing Tool Box

I made this "basket" for my mother's 70th birthday. She was and still is an excellent seamstress. It is a yellow cake with chocolate cream, covered with MMF and the details are made from gum paste. It was fun making all these details. The idea came from Nicolas Lodge masterpiece - many thanks.

WOW! I can only imagine the time it took to make all your little sewing supplies! It is magnificent! Truly a work of art and I'm sure your mother flipped over it! :)

The zipper: for the two rows of interlocking teeth I made a mold pressing a "snake" of non-toxic clay on a real zipper. After the clay mold became firm, I used yellow gum paste to finish the "teeth" and glue them on the blue gum paste ribbon. The sliding device was made by free hand.

Dear bellejoey, I have found the font I like and draw the initials by hand on the pillow with a pen and than finished using CC's luster dust and a tiny paintbrush trying to imitate needlework

You did an amazing job on this cake. It is done perfectly. My mother is a sewer and would LOVE this cake. Great work.

WOW!! All the details are amazing!! How did you make the buttons, the tape, and the pins? I think I know how you made the thread but the spools I don't know. I'm planning on imatating, but there is a similar project i want to do!
