I added a carrot because Easter is coming up – how cute will they look in an Easter basket!? Keep reading for the free crochet cupcake pattern! Continue Reading

I literally made hundreds of these little cupcakes last year! I sold them at a café and people special ordered them by the dozen.

I think I will make a bunch for my family this Christmas, though because they make sweet ornaments and doesn’t a crochet filled Christmas tree sound super?
