I really like cupcakes, and I saw all kinds of cupcake costumes on Allthingscupcake.com and It inspired me to make one of my own. Cupcake fanatic <3
First, take a laundry basket, and cut out the bottom. After, that cut 2 tiny holes on each side, this is where you will attach the suspenders. Take ribbon and insert in hole, and double knot it. Your done with the basket!
Now its time to do the cupcake paper, first measure your basket, and see how much fabric you will need to cover it completely. Once measured, cut out fabric and see if it matches up to the basket height and length. If so, its perfect! Take out piece of foam, and then take adhesive spray and spray it on the foam, then put on the fabric.
After that take your needle and thread and hand sew the cupcake paper sides. You may staple it if it is too hard, I sewed it though. Once the papers side is finished, it should look like the picture at the right.
Then put it on top of the basket and tuck it in the sides of the basket.
Then, take a piece of thread and sew the wrapper to the basket make it secure. Its kind of hard to explain, the picture next to you should explain it.
Frosting time!! For the bottom layer of frosting, cut fabric 15 inches wide and 6 inches longer than the circumference of the cupcake base. This is the "cake" part of the cupcake. Then Cut two more 14-inch-wide strips, one 10 inches shorter and the other 20 inches shorter than the first strip. Then Sew them on your sewing machine. Besure to leave an opening to stuff with fiberfill. Beside is a picture of one strip sewn together.
After, all strips are sewed. Its time to sew them together and put them on top of the cupcake bottom. Take "cake" part and place on top of basket, than take second strip and hand sew it to the bottom strip. Sew the very top strip to the middle strip. Your almost done!
After that take wrapper, and hand sew it just a little bit to the cake part. Picture shows how it should look.
Cut sprinkles same length. Then take spray adhesive and glue plastic straws on!
Here's a white hat, with a knit strawberry on top I had worn with the costume, the white part is supposed to to be the frosting. Heres directions on how to make the strawberry: http://www.flickr.com/photos/pezdiva/133734949/
After that attach strawberry to hat! Your costume is complete! Comment if you have any questions.
