Cupcakes Anyone?

One of my favorite things to knit is baby hats. They are cute, soft, warm & so quick to make that it's almost instant gratification. And who doesn't love to see little cherub cheeks peeking out of them?! So I do make many baby hats for gifts and for customers. I love all of them but I have to say nothing tickles me so very much as these darling cupcake hats do! I mean really.... such sweet little confections. And they are so adorable with precious baby faces peering out from underneath.  I load them up with as many crystal and glass sprinkles as I can without making the whole thing too sickeningly sweet. I love the way they sparkle in the light. Each hat has between 85 ~ 100 beads depending on the size of the hat. I actually enjoy sewing each bead on. It's fun to see where the cupcake will take me from start to finish. These hats are a real creative outlet for me. They're like knitting and baking rolled into one without the kitchen cleanup {or the calories}! Also there's a wee bit of crochet thrown in with the tiny ruffled piping going around the frosting edge.

*And ~ yes ~ I realize the picture is sideways ~ Dang it anyway! I snapped just this one picture and they are off to the boutique now so I went ahead & posted it in hopes you all might just hold your head sideways for a  moment or so. Sorry!

Happy Monday!
