Happy Birthday Piper!
Nobody likes birthdays more than my friend Piper. Happy Birthday Dear Friend! May this year be your best yet!
Molly is celebrating Piper's birthday with a special party hat. To make the hat, I rolled a piece of card stock into a cone shape. Then while holding the cone shape with one hand, I carefully trimmed the extra paper and made the bottom edge even. I used wonder under fusible web to attach fabric to the card stock. Using hot glue I secured the cone and with a bit of of bias tape and more hot glue, I finished off the edge. To make the scrappy pom pom, I took a bunch of 3" strips and secured them in the middle with an elastic band. Next, I fluffed the strips into a pom pom-ish shape and glued it to the hat. Molly Monkey has no chin, so I had to safety pin the hat on! Ouch! It's tough to be a party monkey.
