Letter C: Cupcake Cat Toys

This past Christmas, I made my sister presents for her new kitty. This kitty kept stealing the miniature knitted Christmas stocking I had made for my mother a year previously, so I wanted to make the cat something just for her. My sister and our cousin have a thing about cupcake decor, and I found a pattern in one of my books to make stuffed cupcakes. So, when my sister visited me this past June, I took her to a yarn shop so she could pick the colors and yarn she wants to use. Once that was done, I set to work on the cupcakes.


I sent her this shot of one finished and one nearly finished stuffed cupcake as a teaser and to make sure she still liked the look of them. But I wasn't finished with this project. I was going to spice things up with these little toys.


That's right! I put catnip, jingly balls, and crinkly plastic toys inside them! Let me tell you, putting in the catnip was a bit of a challenge, but I managed.


And here are the final products!


I was informed by my sister that while the kitty does play with these once in awhile, she still goes after that stocking. *sigh* Oh well, I tried and the cupcakes are still freaking adorable.

Hi,
Reading your blog and looking at the beautiful pictures of the cupcake toys, I wish now that I had stuck with learning how to knit.
