I asked my husband and my son what they thought this bottle cozy looked like. My husband said "I -- don't -- know" -- my son said "umm -- a cupcake?". I'm not too sure myself. It's supposed to look like a cupcake. What do you think?

Cupcake with a handle! :o) Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
I can see the cupcake too. Maybe it is the colours? A very clever idea. I love it.ReplyDelete
Its cute! Maybe if the red cherry part was just made pink it would look more cupcake like? Not sure. Still think its fun!ReplyDelete
K @ Aurora Blythe - I think you may be right. If I make another, I'll leave the red off. :)
That's so cute! I love it. I was thinking it might just be the colour of the red. Maybe more of a darker cherry type red. (The dark red cherries). Well at anyrate, it's great!ReplyDelete
This is adorable!!! and it DOES clearly look like a cupcake!!!ReplyDelete
