Crochet Catnip Cupcakes
A good friend of mine moved into her first apartment and decided to decorate each room with a theme.
She didn’t go overboard like they do on those home makeover TV shows but all of the rooms have accents that highlight the theme.
In her kitchen the theme is cupcakes. Since it’s an apartment she didn’t want to do a lot of painting so the color of the kitchen is a generic white and the accents like cupcake cookie jars and hand towels make up a bulk of the theme for now.
While helping her shop for different ways to improve her kitchen appearance I’ve also become obsessed with cupcakes. In addition to trying all of the local cupcake bakeries and food trucks in the area we’ve even made gourmet style rum cupcakes from scratch which were delicious, although due to some frosting complications weren’t very pretty.
Since I was making her a blanket anyway, I took a quick break from it and using some of her yarn I worked one up for her. While I was working on it, her cat S’mores became excited about the yarn twisting between my fingers and I realized how fun it would be to stuff the cupcake with catnip and make it a cat toy! He really enjoyed it!
I plan on making a few more like it to match the blanket but I also want to make a few with some bead sprinkles or buttons. The pattern is super easy to follow and it doesn’t take long to finish, I really recommend it.
