When I started blogging one of the first sights I came across was Cupcake D'lights (South Africa) by Zalita. She makes the most amazing models for cupcakes and cakes and ever since i've been wanting to be able to do that. I have bought and borrowed books so I could learn how to model and last week I finally made my first models, booties for a friend who is going to have her second baby very very soon.
Aren't they sooo cute! I made pink ones too but the photos didn't turn out well.
Story (not sure if it's funny or not): I had spent thursday evening making blue booties. I was really excited about them and didn't end up getting to bed until midnight. I slept in on Friday morning so my husband got our 1 year old up and then went to have a shower. After a while I got up and excitedly went to the table to admire my handywork only to discover that my spiderman of a son had climbed onto the table and eated all the booties! I'm so glad they were really easy to make so I was able to make more, otherwise I would have been very upset.
Rattles I made for her too.
