I was tired of my old sewing pincushion (you know... the ugly tomato pass down the line from the beginning of sewing).  So, I made myself a little cupcake ami, put some sprinkles on her and gave her life  Cheesy

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y87/iheartcapnhook/IMG_4068.jpg

For the pattern.... very simple!!!  This sounds right, but if you find an error, let me know so I can fix it.  I'm trying to stitch it in my head Smiley

Abbreviations:
inc = increase 2 sc in next 1 sc
dec = decrease stitch 2 sc together making 1 sc

Cake part:

R1 Ch 2, 6 sc in second chain from hook, join together at end of each round
R2- Ch 1, inc in each stitch (12 sts)
R3- Ch 1, *1 sc, inc* (18 sts)
R4- Ch 1, *2 sc, inc* (24 sts)
R5- Ch 1, *3 sc, inc* (30 sts)
R6- Through back loops only:
sc around (30 sts)
R7- resume regular stitches - sc around (30 sts)
R8- *4 sc, inc* (36 sts)
R9-13: Sc around (36 sts)
Bind off, leaving long tail for sewing to frosting

Frosting part:

R1 Ch 2, 6 sc in second chain from hook, join together at the end of each round
R2- Ch 1, inc in each stitch (12 sts)
R3- *1 sc, inc* (18 sts)
R4- *2 sc, inc* (24 sts)
R5- *3 sc, inc* (30 sts)
R6- *4 sc, inc* (36 sts)
R7-11: Sc around (36 sts)
R12: *4 dc in one st, 1 sc* around, join together, bind off, weave in loose end.
I used scrap yarn and just went and stitched jimmies on.  After the fact, I realized that the pins I'm going to put on it are all bright colours and probably won't look so hot with pastel frosting & jimmies Smiley  Oh well.  I used 9mm safety eyes.

Sew bottom to top making sure to only use the underside stitches so it doesn't show through the frosting.  When you are 2/3 through, stuff.  Finish sewing and you will have a new friend!

If you make one, post a picture!!!  I'd love to see variations!!!
