I am pretty excited about this project. I fell in love with this Pottery Barn Kids Cupcake Costume a couple of months ago, but my little bean was too small for it. Also, it was priced right around $60, which was just more than my costume budget could handle. So, I decided to give it a go myself. I didn't sew even an inch of it, and I am pretty happy with the results!
1) 1 yard of pink fleece
2) 1/2 yard brown felt
3) 6-8 pieces of small felt sheets (red, white, brown)
4) ruffled edging
6) hot glue
The next step was to create the skirt, or 'cupcake and wrapper.' For this piece, I pulled out one of Lola's dresses to figure out a good width and length. I then cut a piece of the brown felt to size, and hot glued the edges together to create a skirt.
And, wait for it, wait for it...
Our little cherry cupcake. Isn't she a sweetie? I am a little worried that maybe the 'cupcake' part is a little much for the wrapper, but hey, who doesn't like a little extra frosting right? I might be trimming this part down if the perfectionist in me gets a little too loud.
It was hard to get a good picture of the little cupcake, because she was way too busy. But I wanted you to see the little costume in action, so I hope you enjoy what I did manage to capture.
I'll be linking to these parties this week. Hope you will come and link up with us!
