Amigurumi cupcake container free crochet pattern. To make this little cutie, I used a margarine container and then glued the “cup liner” from the cupcake amigurumi to the bottom part, and then glued the frosting to the cap of the container.

*Disclosure

The result is a cute cupcake amigurumi container, that is also disguised but functional. You can store little things in it, and if you don’t tell anybody, you could even use it as a secret hiding place. Once is closed it doesn’t look as there’s anything inside but looks like a one piece cupcake amigurumi.

The idea to create this little cupcake amigurumi came to me because I wanted to save the margarine container. I want to save almost any box, Tupperware, or container that is reusable, it just seems a waste to throw some stuff away.

But I also didn’t want to be the gal that hoards everything. (Note I said everything, as I still hoard some things here and there, lol)

At first, I was just going to cover it with yarn or fabric. But then, when considering “HOW” to cover it with yarn, I got the idea of making a “cup” by working in the round.

It was all play with words from there, as the idea of a cup, make me think of cup-cake. By then my little creative mind started to play with ideas and I created this amigurumi cupcake 😀

I made a little change, as the cup liner is not worked in rounds after all, because by working in rows, I was able to create a texture that resembles the folds found in cupcake liners.

Putting the amigurumi cupcake container all together

  • Sew the fruit topper to the cupcake frosting
  • Glue the cup to the bottom part of the container, and let it dry. I used a hot glue gun, but fabric glue or all-purpose glue will also work just fine.
  • Fill the frosting with fiber-fill and glue it to the top of the container, also let it dry.
  • Ta-da! your own amigurumi cupcake should be done, yay!
