The Cupcakes Have Landed!

Finally, the long awaited arrival of the Sweet City Cupcake Hat! (Well, long awaited for me at least)

Sure, I'd seen other cupcake hats out there, but none had the look I wanted. I wanted frosting with a ruffled edge, a cherry that looked like a cherry, and it had to be totally safe for a baby to wear. Since I couldn't find the one I wanted, I decided to design it!


The Sweet City Cupcake is all I imagined. This could also be custom made with beads, buttons, or scraps of colorful yarn to make sprinkles.

Purchase the Hat: If you are interested in your own custom designed cupcake hat, send me an email:
This hat matches my "Frilly Jane" booties as well. I'm currently thinking about rattles to make this as a gift set. perhaps a large plump cherry?

Booties are bursting forth from the Sweet City Knits workspace.
Last week was all about the Paw Print

This week it's something sweeter....
Presenting, the Frilly Janes

Frilly Janes are a Mary Jane style bootie. The socks feature a faux anklet sock with ruffled edge tucked into a Mary Jane shoe. The shoes have a working cross strap that buttons around a cherry. These are made to be a complement to the Sweet City Cupcake Hat that I'm developing. These booties come in sizes Newborn through Toddler. Patterns for both the Cupcake Hat and the Frilly Jane booties will be available soon for sale in my Ravelry shop. If you would like to custom order a pair of booties in your own colors or size, send me a message.
