Felt Cupcake Tutorial

Today I have a sewing project for you all. These felt cupcakes are adorable and great for quick and easy presents. You could use this tutorial to make a keyring, broach or even just for an ornament! I first saw this idea on zujava but decided to change it up slightly so here is my version of the felt cupcake tutorial.

You will need:
  • 3 different colours of material/felt
  • Thread
  • Ribbon
  • Cute Buttons
  • Anything you want to use to decorate!

You will also need:
  • Needles
  • Pins
  • Scissors 
  • Pin cushion

Step 1: Print out your cupcake pattern template. You can make this image all different size on your computer so get creative with the sizing!

Step 2: Cut the pieces of paper out!

Step 3: From your felt/material cut out 2 pieces of Template A. Cut out 1 piece of Template B -this part is the cupcake topping. Finally cut out 1 piece for Template C - I used some cute fabric. 

Step 4: Arrange your pieces of fabric on top of each other and pin into place(seem to of missed a picture of this stage -sorry!) I used blanket stitch to sew part C onto parts A and B. Doing this first joins all 3 pieces together. You could use a different stitch from blanket stitch but blanket stitch does help to stop the fabric fraying... 

Step 5: Choose a couple of buttons that go with your fabric.Sew on your button near the top of your cupcake. I also added some 'embroidery'(running stitch!) on the bottom.

Step 6: Place part A at the back of  the front piece so it matches up exactly and pin. I used blanket stitch to sew completely around the cupcake topping which is part B on the front of your cake. Now continue to sew around the cupcake topping until you get right back around to where you started. Open out your cupcake at the bottom and push some stuffing into the top section of the felt. Fill up the top half of your cupcake until it feels firm between your fingers. Start to sew down one side of the felt cupcake. I am using blanket stitch again! Continue sewing until you're almost at the end then stop. It is time to start stuffing again! 

Step 7: Finish stuffing and sew up the last bit. Make sure there are no empty gaps in the stuffing. Knot your thread at the back and cut off the remaining strands. 

Step 8: All I did to make it in to a key chain was add a piece of ribbon at the top so you could attach it to a keyring! As easy as ABC! 

So there you have it! Hope you enjoyed and don't forget to look out for the Tip Tuesday tomorrow as it may help you in the making of this....!
