"F" is for Felt Cupcakes

Sew: felt cupcakes

Make your own kids play cupcakes.

Felt, a little hand sewing and a hot glue gun is really all it takes to make these yummy treats:

(Check back tomorrow if you want the free diy build plans for the cupcake stand.)

Don't forget to add some fancy decorations: ribbon, sequins, buttons, ric rac, pom poms, anything will work!

The brown felt chocolate drizzle is my favorite:

How to make felt cupcakes:

1. Download the free pattern here.
For each cupcake cut out:
1 - felt base
1 - felt side (curved piece)
1 - cardboard base
1 - cardboard side

2. Sew the side seam using a whip stitch:

Then sew the base onto the small end of the side piece.

3. To make 'cake' portion cut an 8" circle for a regular cupcake and a 6" circle for the mini:

4. Sew a gathering stitch around the outer edge of the circle and pull tight:

5. Fill with stuffing and make several criss cross stitches then tie a knot:

6. To prepare the base, hot glue the cardboard circle into the base:

7. Hot glue the cardboard side piece into place gently bending the cardboard.
Then hot glue cake into base:

Add sequins and decorations.
