I was going to save this until I worked out the tutorial, but I just think it is toooo adorable and wanted to share! While Mr. Parfait was working on the train costume, I whipped up (…haha) this buttercream inspired headband for Little Mademoiselle to wear to the Halloween event yesterday. I am absolutely infatuated with all things pastry, and cupcakes are pretty high on my list of confectionery delights. I have created many cupcake related crafts in the past, and almost always in a two color swirly fashion. I was thinking of the tops of parfaits, religieuse, meringues, and ice creams when I was creating this headband. It is all felt, and all sewn by hand. This is the third one I created, the first I tried in fleece (…I didn’t have any white felt! What!) and it was a complete failure. It wasn’t stiff enough to keep its shape, even when filled with polyfil stuffing. I tried again but this time sewing each “petal” together, but that didn’t give me the edge I was looking for. The final one of the night was a base of felt, cut into a circle and then sectioned into 8 parts with a marker. Each part was cut a little under halfway to the center, and the top corner of each part (like a pie slice) rounded into a curved half circle of sorts. I’ll go into more detail when I complete the tutorial, but first I need to buy more felt!
