Cupcake Cutie

I wanted to make Aiyanna a cupcake shirt similar to the heart shirt I made a few weeks ago.  I didn't want to try to hunt down the trim because I have no idea where I got it. I had some pink jersey fabric I thought would work great.  So here is what I came up with.
                          

Supplies Needed:

  • Shirt

  • jersey fabric

  • scrap cotton fabric

  • thread

  • scissors


I cut a piece of brown fabric to look like a cupcake liner.  I applied WonderUnder to the fabric and then ironed it to the shirt.



Next I sewed vertical lines to make it look like the creases in the cupcake liner.



Use a watersoluable pen to draw the top of the cupcake.



Cut 3 stirps of jersey 60" long and 1 1/2" wide.  Set your sewing machine tension to +3. This will automatically ruffle your fabric for you.  Sew down the center of your fabric.



Look at all the ruffles!




Starting on the outside sew your ruffles onto the shirt and work your way to the middle  Sew down the center of the ruffle.  When you get to the end of one ruffle piece just overlap the next one a little bit and keep on sewing.


Here is how it will look when you fill it all in.
