3. Fuse and sew the cupcake top in place, matching the points of the arrows as shown in the illustration above.  Attach the appliqué with zig zag # 5 or satin stitch # 27. Adjust the stitch width to your liking.
4. Use the marking pen to draw the curvy lines where you are going to stitch the yarn in place. Cut a small opening on the on the backside of the cushion front, approximately 2” (5cm) long, behind the pink appliqué and only in the white fabric. So you can add a small amount of fiber fill inside the pink part of the cupcake for added dimension.
5. Add yarn on the lines using the Narrow Braid /Cord Foot. Zig zag to match the width of your yarn.
6. Pin the fringe around the edge of the cushion front on the right side. Stitch in place with a zig zag stitch.
