DIY: Cut the Rope Game in Real Life
Are you or your Valentine a fan of Cut the Rope? Use this deliciously hands-on recipe and celebrate in style! This DIY Cut the Rope project creates a stars bikini top with rope strings, candy + heart bikini bottom, and a fuzzy ticklish Spider. And some real life rope cutting fun.
You will need:
- Very basic sewing skills
(Maybe a glue gun could do the trick. Let us know how it goes.)
- Thread and needle
- Felt in white, red and yellow
Get sheets of craft felt, about 30¢ each, at the craft store, or buy 1/4 yards of felt fabric.
- Rope or twine
- Old bra or bikini top
- Small piece of cotton fabric for your undies (optional – I used an old tee-shirt)
- Printer (optional – you can draw the shapes yourself)
- About 2-3 hours, depending on how neat you want the sewing
- Extra credit #1: a roll of black yarn or thick thread to make the spider + something the size of a pack of gum
- Extra credit #2: green felt for Oh Nom the adorable monster (idea: slippers? Incomplete)
How to Make DIY “Cut the Rope” Bikini
2. Trace the stars on yellow felt and cut out.
Mine was transparent enough to see the drawing outlines through it. If yours is not, try using a window as a lightbox to trace, or cut the shape out of paper first.
3. You can download Stars Pattern [168KB zipped PDF]
Print to US letter paper or shrink them for even hotter project.
8. Attach the straps to the inside of the bra.
The double straps on the sides are optional, but they help this thing fit better, stay on, and give lift.
If you’re doing double straps, tie the bottom pair around your back as normal. Then, pass the top left one behind, across your back and to the neck strap on the right.
9. Now, a tasty candy bottom!
Cut out and sew on the red candy shape from white and red felt.

10. Check for size
Compare to an existing bottom that fits you well to see how much fabric you need for the crotch. Then, cut out a heart shape to roughly cover the backside.
Cut four more pieces of rope or twine.
