Free Crochet Pattern...Celebration Cupcake!


Today marks the day I published my 400th video! Can you believe it? I've been wanting to crochet a cupcake for quite some time now, and I thought today would be the perfect occasion! The Celebration Cupcake is sweet, festive, and a breeze to stitch up. This project is perfect for a little birthday surprise, a gift topper, or even as play food for the kids. I loved picking the happy and fun colors too...great for using up those last little bits of yarn!

Need a little help? There's a full video tutorial below too!
