Oh my gosh these little felt crafts are getting around aren’t they? The lovely Retro Jet Girl was out shopping a little while ago, found some and sent me a care package! Now I have 3 more of these little guys to show you 😀 Thank you so much Retro Jet Girl! I’ll show you all the lovely care package items she sent me tomorrow in snapshots!
Obviously again I can’t take any credit for making this tutorial because I was just following their instructions. Full credit goes to the original company but I took photos while I was making it because I thought you might find it interesting anyway ^_^ You can find most of the materials around the house and you can easily substitute anything you like.
I find crafts like these really relaxing to do while watching a movie or unwinding before bed time.
So the first one I made was the cupcake!
Cute packaging as per usual though it doesn’t really look like any cupcake I’ve ever eaten XD
What you need:
I started with the brown pieces and blanket stitched them together to form a tube…
Next I took both small cardboard circles and 1/2 of the stuffing and sandwiched together. I shoved it into the tube and left it for later.
I took the yellow triangles and stacked them. I then sewed down the center from top to bottom.
… and flared them out. The instructions said I should leave like this but the felt kept springing back into place so I needed to stitch the sides together.
Last for this part I added a pearl on top.
I deviated from the instructions because this seemed easier. To make the top of the cupcake I took the icing and stitched to the middle of the white circle.
Then I randomly stitched beads around like sprinkles.
Flipping it over I used a running stitch around the outside.
I filled it with stuffing and the large cardboard piece…
And pulled the thread tight so it would form a kind of ball.
Last thing to be done was stitching the top of the cupcake to the base. Tie everything off and you’re done 😀
I am getting quite the collection of these little guys! I am thinking that I should make some kind of gigantic monster cake hair band with them 😀
They are originally meant to be magnets but what would you guys use them for?
