I decided to write out some directions for making the cupcake ornament in my last post, because everyone is at different levels of "crafting", so some one may enjoy the help. Here I'll be making a red velvet cupcake, with cream cheese frosting.
|Then you do a blanket stitch on the two sides and the bottom, leaving the top open (for stuffing, later).|
|Once the sprinkles are all on, sew the frosting on to the bottom. Try to center it as well as you can. Next, do the same to the other side. Make sure the two sides of frosting match up.|
|Next, using a blanket stitch, sew the frosting sides until the middle.|
|If you will be using this as an ornament, find a ribbon you like, loop it, place it between the two sides, and sew it. Make sure you sew through both layers of felt, and the ribbon.|
|Stuff the cupcake to whatever puffiness you desire. Then, using a blanket stitch, sew up the last half of the frosting, tying it off at the end.|
|There you have it! The perfect handmade cupcake ornament!|
