MY SPANISH ORANGE BLOSSOM CUPCAKE DOLL
Sometime last month, I was making some articles for a local donation, and just as I completed making all that, I saw this absolutely superb Cupcake doll .. but by then, it was a tad too late to make it. Now thanks to the Secret Santa being organised in one of my Facebook groups, I get the chance to make this doll! J
One of my friend's told me that the person I am making this gift for (as Secret Santa) loves cooking and crochet as well.. and she has made some exquisite crochet food 'toys' as well.. so I am hoping that this gift will have her smiling too.
Materials used : For this creation, I used Indian Oswal Cashmilon acrylic, with a 3 mm crochet hook ; embroidery needle ; safety eyes ; good glue.
Size : 7” tall ; 4” around the base
Instructions : (Using U.S terminology)
I chanced on this recipe for this exotic sounding Spanish Orange Blossom cupcake, and thought this was what my doll was gonna be .. an Orange Blossom Spanish cupcake doll .. doesn’t it just sound so oooooh… divine?
.. and here’s a recipe for this cupcake
But for my Spanish Blossom cupcake doll, I’ve been inspired by this free pattern at
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/magic-cupcake-doll and this was the inspirational photo that got me started on this creative journey
.. and how does this cupcake become a doll ?? Click on the video below
I have taken a series of photographs to entice you onto your creation..
so first you decide on colours and get your little girl made...
then you add on the face features.. If presenting to a child, ensure you are using safety eyes and glue them down well
finally put her cap (or sombrero) on and ta da! watch her spring to life!

and finally a view of the little doll just waiting to jump out .. like a "Jill-in-a-box" ?
While working on this doll, I also found this pattern for a Magical Cinderella.
Yes, once you find one of these topsy turvy little funniness, you are not going to be able to stop either! http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/magic-cinderella
Finally there are a set of topsy turvy dolls, which are stunningly fantastic, but these is not a free pattern. Buy it at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cupcake-topsy-turvy-doll
So go ahead, go crazy and create.
One little princess is going to be mighty pleased

I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'.
We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them.
We strongly believe in R-R-R and several of my projects will show this.
