No-Sew Fabric Party Hats

No-Sew Fabric Party Hats


I am so excited when I received samples of the Arcadia Collection from Cloud 9 Fabrics to play with for this project, and even more excited with what it lead to. The overall feel of this line, for me, is very whimsical with lots of hand drawn nature and floral elements. How perfect for a Garden Themed birthday party? While fabric is usually thought of first for sewing projects, I wanted to explore other ways it could be utilized.

Using a party hat and bow shape from the Silhouette Design Store, some Silhouette Brand Fabric Interfacing, as well as various patterns of fabric, I was able to cut and make these adorable fabric party hats using my Silhouette CAMEO. With the Clean Cut Fabric Interfacing cut to size, I adhered the fabric directly to a piece of kraft colored cardstock to be sure that the hats were durable enough for wear.

 

From there, using the regular Silhouette blade (note: not the fabric blade since there is cardstock involved and you don’t want to dull your blade), I played around with settings until I found one that cleanly cut through the fabric/cardstock combo. Once you have that set, simply send it through your Silhouette CAMEO to cut the Party Hat shape for you. By using the Clean Cut Fabric Interfacing, and ironing the pieces together before hand, your hats will be ready to be assembled right after they cut, no sewing needed!

For the bows, I also used the Silhouette Clean Cut Fabric interfacing, but instead of ironing fabric to cardstock, I chose to iron two different patterned fabrics together before cutting out the shape. All that’s left after that is to attach the bows to your hats, add a little hand-cut fringe to the top, and party on!


Happy Celebrating!

  1. Brittany,
    Those hats are very cute, would love to make some for my friend’s class. Question: What settings did you use?

    1. Hi Blue! Thank you! I believe I used either a 4 or 5 setting for my blade. The best way to be sure is to have your CAMEO or PORTRAIT do a test cut before running the whole project through! Hope that helps!

  2. Very cute! What setting worked to cut through paper and fabric? I have no idea where to start.

    1. Hi Laura-

      I believe I set mine to the regular cardstock setting but then bumped the blade up to a 4 or 5. I also used the standard blade, not the fabric blade, when running it through. Best bet is to do a test cut before hand so that you know if it will work. If it seems to be leaving parts uncut, I suggest upping the blade # or setting it to “double cut” in your cut settings! Hope that helps! 🙂

  3. These are beautiful! Very clever use of such pretty fabrics. 🙂

  4. These are so cute! I have to make some!

  5. These are adorable! What a wonderful idea!

  6. Fantastic idea Brittany! Those fabrics are gorgeous!
