I purchased some crochet patterns from anapaulaoli.etsy.com, she has some seriously cute stuff, and along with my patterns she included this super cute cupcake pattern that she offers for free on her blog as well.
So, I totally went to town and I made all the birthday kids a personalized crochet character cupcake. It was so fun thinking of each child, trying to create something just for them.
This was last year. Its birthday season again, and I've got my work cut out for me. I've got some sewing projects going and I want to make some appliquéd t-shirts. I was thinking initials would be fun. And I'll probably try making some more softies!
