Mint Chocolate Chip With A Cherry On Top (and a little amigurumi love)



This one is for a good friend of mine that has been waiting patiently for me to crochet her a cupcake. I hope she likes it.

These are seriously so fast and fun to make. It just takes a couple of hours, you've got to make yourself a cupcake.

I first started making cupcakes when I discovered the world of Amigurumi. I got sucked into site after site of adorable little creatures and oh, the food!

Here are a few of my favorites:

Crochet Me has a tutorial on how to get started with your own little Amigurumi dude, including how to crochet in the round and how to make an adjustable ring.

Ana Paula has some super cute patterns in her Etsy shop.

I love this tiny bear on the Amigurumi Along site.

Planet June sells lots of fun patterns for dogs and other animals.

You have got to check out Gourmet Amigurumi. Elisabeth Doherty creates the most amazing creatures and has a book sharing some of her patterns.

Stitch shares her pattern for a very cute Amigurumi Doll.

Hopefully that's enough to get you started, be careful, its addictive!
