"And I said what about Breakfast at Tiffany's..."





I was recently substituting a textiles class at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay and was really inspired by a project the intermediate students had completed. Professor Gates, who runs the textile program at UWGB, had her students read "Breakfast at Tiffany's" by Truman Capote and then had her students make a project that was inspired by the book. I love the book and most of all I really love the movie. And I happen to really love buying things from Tiffany and Co. So, I decided to make a little piece myself that was inspired by these things. The cupcakes are made from hand dyed fleece that was felted around two styrofoam balls. The one with the white ribbon has a cubic zirconia earing in it and the one with the pink polka dot has a little diamond earing in it. Who wouldn't love a little Tiffany cupcake?
