Embroidery ideas - - - cupcake cozy
I've had this idea kicking around in my head for a while. Cupcake wrappers & cozies are all over the internet but most of them are single use.
I love the idea that these are able to be used time & time again.
What to do...
-Trace around the template using your wash out or fade out marker.
-Draw your design onto the fabric. I just scribbled the "yum" & then went over it a few times to fatten it up. I used plastic backed curtain lining which worked well but you could always use regular cotton or linen & then vliesofix a couple of layers together before you do your blanket stitching.
- Stitch your design.
- Cut around the template shape.
- Blanket stitch around the edge.
-You just need to stitch a little hook & eye onto either side of the join once you're done with the stitching.
You can collect the pdf template & a nice cupcake recipe too - - - right here.
