Hi you guys! This is my first attempt at a crochet cupcake. What do you think? Is she good enough to eat? :)

I’m going to mail her as part of the Make-It & Mail-It Challenge #2, so I had to take a few pictures to remember her by. (Not saying who she’s for in case she sees this.) (And sure hope you will have time to join in the challenge! It’s not just for cards, feel free to make and mail anything you like.)

(Resources: The crochet pattern is from Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet by Ana Paula Rimoli. I love this book so much, I want to make everything in it! Amigurumi is a kind of crochet in the round that is popular in Japan — I first found out about it while I was browsing a bookstore in Tokyo. I litterlly squealed with delight when I  first saw it, startling quiet shoppers! But it was all in Japanese and I’m not that good at crochet yet. I was so happy when I found this book in English! Beads  and paper doily are from the craft store. The eyes were hard to come by, but I finally found some at Hobby Lobby. The wooden plate is one that I got from Keyuca in Tokyo. That store is awesome! I made the napkin a while back.)

Have a sweet day,

    1. Hi Shalini! My grandma taught me how to crochet when I was little, but she passed away when I was 9. I didn’t do it for a while and got rusty so I hunted for a book too — the best one I found is actually a Klutz book for teens! It’s at Michael’s, or here’s the Amazon link:
      http://www.amazon.com/Crochet-Learn-Great-Projects-Klutz/dp/1570548706/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1304515561&sr=8-1

      Hope that helps! I love crochet! Sure wish I could knit, tho! :)

  2. Oh Lisa, this is absolutely adorable! It may be your first time to make one but it looks perfect to me and no calories too! Love the cute little face and bead sprinkles! I still can’t crochet so must see if I can find a knitted version like I did for your super cute owlets!
