Cupcake Wall hanging


Cupcake Hero.jpg

This cool, poster sized wall hanging is covered with 3D cupcakes. They are easily sewn as appliqués and with the added fiberfill behind the icing it does look dimensional. Frame your sewn work and make it into a large colorful wall hanging. This project was created for the HUSQVARNA VIKING Jade 20 campaign but can be sewn on any sewing machine.

What You Need:
  • HUSQVARNA VIKING® JADE™ 20 sewing machine or similar
  • White medium weight cotton or wool fabric 31 ½” x 43 ½” (80 x 110cm)
  • Fusible Fleece stabilizer
  • Squares of fabric in 10 different colors for appliques. Size 7” x 4 ½ ”(35 cm x 21cm)
  • A strip of black fabric for appliques. Size 4” on the full width(10cm x 130cm ), we used fake leather
  • Sewing thread to match your fabrics
  • Embroidery thread
  • Bobbin thread
  • Fiber fill
  • Double sided fusible web
  • Water Soluble marker

1. Cut the background fabric 31 ½” x 43 ½” (80 x 110cm), (this does include extra fabric for mounting.)
2. Iron the fusible fleece stabilizer to the back of the white fabric.
3. Print the template of the cupcake.
4. Iron the double sided fusible web to the back of the cupcake bottom fabric.
5. Use the templates to cut out 10 square pieces for the bottom parts of the cupcakes and 10 different colored icing pieces.
6. Place the applique pieces for the bottom parts of the cupcakes as shown on the template. Peel off the paper and iron it in place. Sew with zig zag stitch 5, adjust the stitch width to 2mm and the stitch length to 1.5mm. Use the needle Stop Up/Down position to turn the corners.
7. Stitch the white decoration lines with satin stitch 27 using an embroidery thread. Adjust the stitch width to 2mm wide.
8. Continue to sew the colored appliqué pieces in place. Match the points of the arrows of the template as shown on the cupcake template. Attach the appliqués with zig zag stitch 5 or satin stitch 27, adjust the stitch width to your liking.
9. Use the marking pen to draw the curvy lines where you are going to stitch the curved lines.
10. Cut a small opening on the backside of each of the colored appliqués, approximately 2” (5cm) long, behind the appliqués and only in the background fabric so you can add a small amount of fiber fill inside the icing part of the cupcake for added dimension.
11. Sew the decorative curved lines with stitch 21 (hand look quilt stitch).
12. Press the wall hanging, (not the colored top parts of the cupcakes).
13. Frame the wall hanging.
