Crafty make-it + mail-it

A crochet cupcake for a sweet friend.

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. I love Anna’s books I have two of them and have just recently finished a half dozen cupcakes as a birthday gift. They are so easy to make, I am like you I want to make everything in both books.

  2. Totally adorable!!! I love the “icing” swirled edge and the tiny sprinkles on top! Your set upf for the photo is so cute too!

  3. I love the crochet cupcake!! I’ve been attempting small crocheted flowers for cards but have decided that the crochet needle and I do not get along. I like my knitting needles so much better! So I love to see what others can create!

  4. well, well, well.. aren’t you the multi-talented little thing?! yeah, i am totally envious! your blog is turning into those pretty blogs with pretty pictures.. so much eye candy in every corner.

  5. Yikes! That is awesome – although I’m a little jealous that you have added yet ANOTHER talent to the very long list already in place (PLUS, you’re also good at MATH!!!). OK. I’m very jealous. But, that is a seriously sweet cupcake and the little sprinkle beads on top totally make it. I need to sign up for these make-it-mail-it challenges especially since we will soon be moving. BWAAAAAA!!!!
    It’s OK, I’ll mail you :)
