I recently finished a couple of fun projects as gifts for some sweet girls. I made the cupcake for my niece for her 1st birthday and the doll for a good friend's daughter for her 4th birthday. Both turned out great!
I love the cupcake, even though the candle is a bit off in terms of scale. I used the cupcake pattern from "One Skein" and then I did the candle myself, using a bit of trial and error. The doll is from the Black Apple pattern. I knitted some leg warmers and made the skirt with stash fabric. My friend's daughter loves dancing and is taking dancing classes.
Happy Birthday Girls!
