Felt Cupcake Pattern

I have made a huge stash of these and enjoy giving them out to people for their birthdays!  Of course they also go great with a felt Turtle or a felt Inchworm too!



I used wool felt for these.

Sorry no in process photos but pretty straight forward.



Trace pattern onto Freezer Paper.  Iron onto the felt colors of your choice.



I also cut out 2 - 1 1/4 inch card stock circle to use inside of the cupcake base to help it stand properly once you have stuffed it.

Cut out felt pieces.

Machine stitch or hand sew up the short side of the cupcake side piece.  I used about an 1/8" seam allowance.  Turn out the piece so raw seam will be inside the cupcake. 

I used small flower dies and my Big Shot to cut out 4 graduated flowers to use as "frosting".



I placed a large bead on top of my stack of 4 flowers and using needle and thread, sewed through all the layers a couple times.

Then hand sewed the flower stack onto the cupcake frosting top.

Next whip stitch the frosting layers onto the cupcake top.

Now sew the cupcake top to the cupcake side using a whip stitch.

Sew cupcake base to cupcake side, leaving a small opening to stuff the cupcake.

Once cupcake is stuffed, slip in 2- 1 1/4 inch cardstock circles that have been glued or taped together.  This helps it stand upright and keep a flat bottom.

Sew the cupcake base closed.

 
Evelyn the Inchworm is a pattern from the book  "Wee Wonderfuls".
