Mermaid Party Hat


Today I'm sharing another project that I made using my Silhouette Cameo.  All this week I've been sharing what I made for a friends daughters 1st birthday... and what party would be complete without a party hat?!

I used a glittery, hot pink party hat and put ruffled and pleated ribbon that I had in my stash to the top and bottom to finish the edges.

I then found a super cute mermaid in the Silhouette Online Store and cut her out of fabric.

I used brown smooth heat transfer by Silhouette for the mermaid base and layered all of the other cut materials on top.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut all of the fabrics - you just have to iron on fusible webbing or a heat bond backing to your fabric before you place it on the mat to cut.

I used a fusible fleece on the back of the purple fabric scallop to help stabilize it and then sewed the edges to finish the look.  I also added glittery tulle behind the scallop because glittery tulle makes everything better!  I cheated and glued the entire scallop circle with the mermaid directly onto the hat with super glue - I thought I'd hand stitch it on but time was of the essence. 

That's it for me!  And I think that's all of the birthday projects I wanted to share! 
Have a great weekend!
