Pattern: Cupcake by Nimoe
Hook: size G
Yarn: Red Heart white and buff medium 4 worsted
Notions: pale pink bow, heart button, and 9mm safety eyes
Good afternoon! Yesterday I spent the day inventorying all my crafts for the convention next weekend. Later that night I started on another amigurumi. I found a cute pattern for a cupcake at Nimoe's blog.
I found some pre-made ribbon bows at Hobby Lobby yesterday morning and I'm so glad I purchased them. I bought them to use on my felties, but they worked great as an embellishment for this cupcake. I attached a pale pink heart button to the bow (you gotta love having a stash of buttons!) before gluing the bow to the cupcake.
For the eyes, I used 9mm safety eyes. Yesterday I received a package from my friend Amanda which had lots of Japanese gummies and biscuits, a dragon amigurumi that I commissioned for Mother's Day, and a surprise. Also included in that package was a bag full of different size safety eyes and some stitch markers. I'm so happy she sent me some because I was able to use them on my cupcake! Just today I found some safety eyes at Joann's Fabrics. They seem to be the only place I've seen them in town.
I've got some laundry to do before watching the finale of OUAT and another episode of Sherlock on PBS.
Until next time ^_____^
