· Felt· Stuffing
· Needle and thread
· Beads and trimming
Draw a cupcake shape onto a piece of paper to use as a template.
Use 2 bits of paper and fold in half and cut out the template. This gives you four pieces the same size (although I only needed 3 in the end)!
Take each paper cupcake template and cut into the “layers”.
So I’ve got…
1 – front and back2 – bun case and cake
3 – icing and cherry!
Use the templates to cut the correct size out of felt. (apologies for my hand shadows...stupid spotlights)!
Check all your pieces fit together
Using a simple running stitch sew all the pieces together, using the stitch to add the detail.
Add extra detail. So I added some of my bargain trimming and beads to look like sprinkles!
Use a blanket stitch to sew the front and back together, then add the stuffing and sew up and knot! I also added the hanger at this stage so the loose ends were sewn neatly inside.
Hang up and admire!!
