Peyton’s second birthday is fast approaching and I wanted a special shirt for her day.
I ironed heat and bond onto my desired fabrics, then I traced the pieces for the cupcake onto the backside of the appropriate color. I cut those out, then ironed them on, starting with the base of the cupcake. I sewed around that, using a straight stitch. I moved up to the frosting layer and did the same thing.
Before I ironed on the number candle or the little flame, I marked where they would be, and did a straight stitch forward and then backward a few times to make a little wick for the candle.
After that I added the number candle and flame the same way I did the other two pieces.
I made another one for my nephew, Tyler, who turned one! (Where has this past year gone?)
I saw a plush iron on at the store, and thought, I can so make that.. or I can “sew” make that, if you want it to be “pun-ny” or funny, if you will.
(Someone is tired..)
I used felt instead of fabric for this one, but used the same heat and bond, iron on then sew technique. I did add a button for his little eye.
I was pretty excited with how cute they turned out!
