We’ve added a mini cupcake to our miniature collection and made a tutorial so you can too. It’s ridiculously cute.
Here’s the printable pattern:
First, cut your pieces. Then, create a jagged zig zag line at the top of your cupcake wrapper.
Next embroider a bunch of parallel lines to create the pleated look of the cupcake wrapper. You can jump from line to line as long as you only do so on the inside of the wrapper so you have clean lines on the outside. Then, fold it right sides together and sew the open side shut, like so:
Next, sew the bottom circle into the bottom of the wrapper while it’s still inside out. Then, flip it around and your cupcake wrapper is complete!
Now it’s time to sew the cupcake top. Start with two triangles, right side them together and sew one side shut. Then, open them up and add in the next pice, sewing them in one by one, always right sides together.
Continue until you’ve gotten all the way around and sewn the last piece shut to the pice you began with.
Next, we want to make some small tucks around the sides of the cupcake top so that it will fit into the cupcake wrapper. On each seam, make a very small fold and stitch it in place. Don’t over fold, because we want it to fit on top of the wrapper nicely.
Now we get to put the cupcake into the wrapper! Place it just inside the top of the wrapper and pin it in place. Then, sew around using a running stitch, leaving a small opening for the stuffing.
Once it’s stuffed, close the hole.
Now, twist the top of the cupcake until you have a nice swirl and it has more of a point at the top and stitch it in place.
Apparently it already looks super delicious!
Next step is to make a swirl around the top of the cupcake with some sparkly hot glue and add some gems, seed beads, or anything you have that will look like sprinkles. We made small felt cut outs for ours because that’s what we had!
If you want to add a little face like we did, go ahead and cut out a mouth, glue on some googly eyes, and voila! Cutest mini cupcake ever?!
As always, let us see all your mini everything! Thanks for following along!
