a piece of material
scrap yarn in 2 colors
an empty reynolds baking cups container
rnd 1: ch 4, sc in 4th ch from the hook, ch 1, (sc, ch 1) 7 more times join with sl st(8 sc, 8 ch 1)
rnd 2: ch 1, sc ch 1 in same st and in each sc and ch 1 space around, join with sl st to first sc (16 sc, 16 ch 1 spaces)
rnd 3 and 4: repeat round 2
rnd 5: ch 1, sc in same st, ch 1, (sc ch 1) in back loop only of every sc, join with a sl st. (16 sc, 16 ch 1 spaces)

row 1: dc in 3rd ch from the hook and each rem ch (50 dc)
row 2: ch 3, *sl st in next dc, ch 3, repeat from * fasten off
cut circle in fabric about 2 inches bigger then container top on each side, hot glue the material edge around the outter edge of the container top, pleating every half inch or so leaving about 1 inch unglued, stuff with stuffing until as firm as you would like it, continue gluing closed. glue the trim over the edge of the material hidding the edge.
glue the base over the bottom of the muffin container, i just put a line around the top of the base and stuck it on.
insert pins in the top and store thembels, tape measurer or what ever in the bottom
now this is to the best of my memory so if you try it and find any mistakes please let me know.
