The super easy 10 minute Cherry on Top Cupcake Hat!

3 Jan

When I spotted my daughters pink knit hat the other day I knew I had to stop everything and fancify it.

10 minutes later I had this awesome cupcake hat.

You will need:

The knit hat used was double thickness so I was careful to only sew through one of the thicknesses.

The trick here is to sew as few knit stitches as possible so the beads won’t be stretched with the hat.

Arrow points to tacking stitch knot

Begin by threading your beading needle and sewing a tacking stitch to 2 or 3 of the knit stitches, you can hide the knot by positioning the bead over it .

Tack down the opposite side. Since the second layer of knit takes most of the stretching the beads stay put without affecting the fit. Repeat until your happy with the look.

Tack cherry to the top by sewing through the base of the cherry and back through the bottom of the hat since the cherry is placed in the center you can go through both thickesses to help it sit upright without affecting the fit.

And there you are with an awesome hat!

Weave second set of strips into the first using an over under method, to create a lattice design.

Using a small dollop of felt glue join the strips together where they meet, work slowly to avoid mistakes. Use the smallest amount of glue possible,  too much glue may make your felt tough to sew through.

Please note:  DO NOT GLUE  LATTICE TO RED PIE FACE, PIE TOP IS ONLY THERE TO JUDGE LATTICE PLACEMENT.

Your lattice will look like this when completed.

Trace your foam wedge shapes onto red felt.

If you aren’t using American Felt and Craft’s pre-cut foam pie wedges you can cut another 8 inch circle from paper and divide it into 6 sections and cut down the sides of the triangles but not through the center so you can trace the wedge shape but still have an intact paper circle for use in an upcoming step, as shown below or you can use the wedge template above.

Mark out spots where you will place your cherriCopyright American Felt and Craft cherry pie step9 DIY tutoriales, you may want to place lattice over to assist in selecting the areas you want to place the cherries, you’ll want to use about 1/2 of your cherries.

To create your cherries carefully cut all wool felt balls into halves.

Using small amount of felt glue, glue cherries into place, wait for them to dry about 15 minutes and stitch them down securely, they may be choking hazard for small children so you want them to be extremely secure. Repeat this process with the 6 side pieces.
