Cupcake With Pin Sprinkles Please!

cupcakepincushion
Okay, I have to start by saying that I am forever in awe of some of the super creative and wonderful ideas that I find on WordPress. Today, I am especially thankful for one that I found last night on “The Whole Knit & Caboodle” ( here’s the link to the post http://thewholeknitandcaboodle.com/2013/05/22/free-cupcake-pin-cushion-pattern/).

While the pattern was super easy to follow, I must admit that I was watching “Hell’s Kitchen” last night while making this and it’s possible that I miscounted rows ๐Ÿ™‚ Therefore, my cupcake seems to have turned out a little larger than it was supposed to, but I think that’s ok. Either way, it does the job and I absolutely love my new pin cushion. No more sticking pins in the ironing board cover or piling them on the desk while sewing ๐Ÿ™‚ No excuses!

A Pokemon Party

My son had his 8th birthday party over the weekend. He wanted a Pokemon/Soccer party, so I made the cupcakes (in soccer ball wrappers and decorated them as Poke-balls (at least that’s what I call them…what are those things called?!?)

The little drawstring bags were kind of aย last-minute decision and I quickly whipped up the Pokemon themed bags to put their party gifts (a pack of Pokemon cards) in.

I, for one, am all Pokied out, but I think the boys really loved the party so I guess it was worth it ๐Ÿ™‚
