So cute! Easy pattern for beginners!
One year ago, both my Tumblr blog and Blogspot blog were launched! I can’t believe a year has gone by already! Blogging has been a growing but wonderful experience and I’ve met so my awesome people! Thank you for all your support!
To celebrate, I’m posting a free amigurumi cupcake pattern with a step-by-step tutorial! The tutorial is on my blog here
• Yarn in your choice of colors
• Crochet hook - D to F depends on yarn weight
• Stuffing - Polyfil
• Yarn or Darning Needle
❤ Optional - embroidery thread, beads, 5 mm safety eyes, keychain, or phone lanyard.
This pattern is written in American terms, but for those unfamiliar with them, the British terms are in blue.
Rnd 3- sc in each st, back loops only 
Rnd 4- (sc 2 then inc) x4 
Rnd 5- sc in each st 
❤ Tie off and hide the end inside the bottom.
Rnd 2- Inc in each st 
Rnd 3- (sc then inc) x6 
Rnd 4&5- sc in each st 
Rnd 6- Edging: Ch 1, hdc in next st, ch 1, sl st in next st. Repeat around, about 8 more times.
❤Tie off and leave a long tail for sewing the frosting top to the cupcake bottom. Sew the bottom under the frosting’s top edge to that the brown top edge isn’t visible. Stuff when there’s about an inch wide opening left. Finish sewing the cupcake closed. Hide the tail inside the cupcake and you’re done!
Thank you to everyone who responded to my question yesterday! Most of your questions were beyond the basics so I’m planning a more in-depth and all encompassing post that should help those at all levels.
Again, thanks! Your answers were helpful!
Calling All Amigurumi Beginners!
I need your input for an upcoming blog post! I’m putting together a bunch of links and resources for those who’d like to learn how to make amigurumi.
*For those who are at an advance beginner or an intermediate level: I’m planning a post for you as well. This question is specifically for beginners.
My question: What kind of help do you need? Where are you lost or need guidance in order for you to start making these cute creations? What technique do you find is the hardest or most difficult to master?
Here’s an update on my summer activities and projects:
I have a couple of animal dolls that need to be finished! I really love the bear doll in the blue dress but she needs a face! My problem is I want her to be perfect so I’m stalling :] Ever do that? The bear and kitty are done and just need some clothes, and I hope to list them in the shop soon.
I go through times when I get bored or too sore for amigurumi so I dabble in sewing and embroidery. I made myself a binder to organize my blog stuff and a sweet little needle book.
Please read all about the projects here!

This quick and fun heart tutorial is a good starting point for anyone wishing to move beyond designing amigurumi plush that are mix of ball and tube shapes. The slip stitch join is a very useful technique that has many possibilities besides hearts :] Here are some ideas for it’s use: straight legs for dolls and animals, fingers for hands, bunny or monster ears, plant branches … For the full tutorial with step-by-step photos -> Read More
Difficulty: ❤❤♡♡ Advanced beginner
This is a wonderful beginner’s project but it does use a few advanced techniques: The magic ring, invisible decrease and a slip stitch join of the two halves.
This pattern is written in American terms. But for my UK friends, the British terms are in blue.
Notes: Finished Size: 1.75” x 1.75” (4.5 cm x 4.5 cm) ❤ I use the joined-rounds method of amigurumi, most people do not. This pattern is written for both spiral and joined rounds, use the method you are most comfortable with.
Rnd 1) In a MR, sc 6 
Rnd 2) (Sc then inc) x3 
Rnd 3) Sc in each st 
❤ Make 2 lobes, tie off first one. Do not tie off second lobe! Sl st both halves together.
Rnd 4&5) Sc in each st 
Rnd 6) (Sc 2 then invdec) x4, sc in last 2 sts 
Rnd 7) (invdec then sc) x4, invdec last 2 sts together 
❤ Stuff both lobs and center off heart firmly
Rnd 8) (invdec around) x4, sc in last st (5)
❤ Tie off and you’re done!
What I’ve Been Up To Lately~
From left to right, top to bottom:
1) & 2) Spent Father’s Day at my in-law’s farm. It was a gorgeous day and I came home with a fist full of roses, they smelled heavenly! :D
3) I’ve been spending the majority of my free time working on this baby: a new blog template!! I’m super excited to roll it out, I’m really hoping this is the week. It feels like I’ve been working on it for forever! UGh
4) Took a break from coding & design and painted my nails :] I rarely do them so it was a treat when they turned out so nice lol! *never happens*
5) New amigurumi designs! I’m re-creating Sabo Kappa and friends into a set of patterns that I’d like to sell, yay! I’ll be posting better pics and updates soon :}
AND..6) I’m finally done with my Cutie Kitty pattern!!! It took forever to finish, i know, i know. I procrastinated like no one’s business X[ shame on me. But hey, it’s done now! (Thanks for waiting so patiently!)
