There was so much from the girls’ 4th birthday party, I’ve had a hard time summarizing it. A couple things I still want to tell you about are the decorations and the other felt food I made: birthday cakes and a can of soup.
I pretty much followed a pattern for the felt birthday cake that I found online. Of course, there were special Ethne tweaks that made it even better, but I think what I’ll do is connect you to this link for the general idea on how to cut out the pieces, etc., then I’ll show you a step-by-step pictorial of the steps I did. I’ll point out where I added my own touches:
|The pieces needed for one slice of cake: pre-decorated|
|I sewed the pieces together in the order of these photos|
|I found that if I didn't sew all the way up to the corners they looked better|
|I added these tabs to the slices cuz it didn't sit right without them|
|This fiberfill works for any felt project|
|Velcro on the sides to keep the pieces together and|
on top to hold the candle on
These cakes weren’t hard to make, but they were sure putzy! Of course I made three of them: one for each of my birthday girls and one to our family friend Super A. I can tell you that these will be the last felt birthday cakes I ever make. Not the last felt food, though, since they’re not all that putzy.
The can of soup and decorations will be later this week!
