Cupcake Designs by InspiredTokens

I've been very busy lately, working on a new 'baby' line for my Etsy shop and finally have gotten a few items up. I'm so excited to announce this new line which I'm calling 'Cupcake Designs'. Here are a few pictures of the new items. I do hope you enjoy seeing them ...and there will be more to come!


These are cotton flannel baby sets. Which I have pre-stitched using a technique called Hemstitching and then hand crochet a lavish cotton edging on the blanket and burp clothes. I have also designed little beanies to match each set.




I coordinate the beanie embellishment with the fabric used for the blanket set. Here I've done what I'm calling 'modern circles'.



A close up of the hand crocheted edging. Before I crochet the edging, I hemstitch the sets by machine. This is a special stitching which evenly spaces the holes for crocheting and at the same time reinforces the holes made. Thus giving the edging a more uniform and polished look.


Lastly ...the packaging. I'm packaging the items in a see through cupcake box complete with a handmade vintage tag. All ready for gift giving! The sets without the little beanies are wrapped with a lavish tulle bow ...again, ready for that special baby!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my newest 'Cupcake' design. Stay tuned ...there will be more in the days and weeks ahead.

Wow, these baby items are fabulous! I'm going to remember your beautiful creations the next time I need a baby gift (as I'm way past baby-making days myself).

I love that cupcake fabric. :)

I've been busy with some baby items myself. Not to sell, but for gifts.
Between friends and family, we have 4 babies due later this month!
