These sweet felt cake pops make the prefect addition to your felt food bakery or teddy bear’s picnic.

Add some more fun to your felt project by poking a few holes onto crafter’s foam with a chopstick and slip the pops in for a fun and colorful felt food display.

You will need:

Per pop:

4.5″ square of felt in cake pop color, I used: Buttercream, Pink tutu, Mint, White, Chocolate, Aqua and Amethyst Purple*

3.5″ x 1.5″ white felt scrap for stick*

*Matching thread

Felt Glue

 (optional) 

Ribbon for base

Nut Beads

Classic Sprinkle Beads

Sugar Beads

Jimmies (sprinkle beads)

Felt Scrap for misc decor.

Cross stitching thread for sprinkles

Step 1:

 Cut out your cake pop and stick pieces, you may want to print or copy the pattern onto freezer paper for the most accurate cutting.

Step 2:

 Roll the white felt rectangle long between your hands to help it better curl. Roll up and stitch down the side with a running stitch and matching thread. Set aside.

Sew Up the stick

Sew the cake pop from the center hub down until you get to the flat bottom edge. Leave your knots exposed because you will be flipping the piece inside out.

Repeat on 3 sides. Sewing it this way makes your piece a bit more uniform and is the best way to compensate for any small differences in cut.

Step 4:

Sew all but one remaining side, flip piece so it is right side out and gently stuff. Sew up open side.

Run a small gathering stitch around the base of the pop and pull tightly, then pass the needle through the “stick” a few times to insure it is secure.

Step 6:

You may need to roll the “pop” between your hands to round it out.

Tie bow around the base and add sprinkles or other embellishments with felt glue or stitching.

AFC Presents: Chocolate Fudge- Hot Glue!

3 Jun

American Felt and Craft is proud to announce our new product, Fudge- Hot Glue! Not since kindergarten paste has glue been so appetizing! Made in the U.S.A, this chocolate brown hot glue adds an unbelievably realistic look to your felt food creations and holds tight to fibers for a strong bond. Great for drips, drizzles, toppings, and dips. Totally non-toxic and best of all available at our on line store, 4 – 4″ sticks for only $2.75, talk about a cheap thrill!

For use in all full sized low temp glue guns.

Hot Fudge

Tips for use:
To avoid stringy pieces never pull away from the piece until you have stopped all pressure on the trigger and waited a few seconds.
To remove colored glue from gun place new color (or clear) glue stick into gun, pull trigger emptying glue onto paper until no more of the original color can be seen, usually around 3-4 trigger pulls.
In the event you need to remove the fudge glue from your piece, wait for it to cool thoroughly and then attempt removal.

Note:  This hot glue sticks firmly and in some cases it may be impossible to remove, in which case try cutting away as much as possible and cover spot, attempting to remove glue while still hot can result in messy strings and smashing it into interlocked fibers making removal impossible.

Please do not attempt to eat glue of any kind, even paste.
