Yummy Crochet! Take 1
I'm finally ready to share my good news! Drumroll please.............
My amigurumi cupcake pattern will be published in the forthcoming book/ kit Yummy Crochet! Gasp!
A few months ago I was contacted by the very sweet Kristen Rask (of Plush You and Schmancy Toys fame) about my cupcakes... she wanted to include them in her book, Yummy Crochet, which will include patterns for cutie food like a hamburger, fruit, sushi, cookies and more! I came up with a new cupcake pattern just for the project (complete with whipped cream and swirl variations). Actually, you guys might remember when I went on a cupcake making binge and I had billions of cupcakes everywhere... this book is the reason why (I kept making samples and testing and tweaking it!) Anyway, my cupcake was chosen as one of the featured projects for the book, which means not only will you get the instructions to make it, but you will also get all the materials you need to make it, including yarn, eyes, and a crochet needle.
The book/kit will be available from Barnes & Noble around September, so keep an eye out! It also features lots of ami artists (like Love This Stuff artist Elisha Copeland!), so I'm very excited to have been a part of it :) I'm supposed to receive an advanced copy sometime soon, and when I do I'll share a bit more with you.
In the meantime, head on over to Kristen's website Schmancy Toys and enter her giveaway before August 12 for a chance to win a copy of Yummy Crochet!
