Have You Crocheted Food?

By Emilee Gettle – 12 Comments
As a child I fondly remember one afternoon my mom out of desperation tried to convince me that I needed a nap. She told me it would be worth it and there would be a surprise when I woke up. After fighting the idea, I finally gave in. A couple hours later when I rubbed my sleepy eyes I saw a slice of pizza, an Oreo cookie and hamburger and bun, complete with a pickle waiting for me. She had crocheted everything. It was my most memorable nap. When I woke up I thought the shut-eye was well worth it!

Have you ever crocheted play food just for the fun of it?

    So far I have only crocheted cupcakes for my 1 yr. old granddaughter’s BD party. I have since bought two books with food patterns in them, and hopefully by the time she is 2 or 3 I will have a nice selection of play food items for her. 🙂 There are also some nice free food patterns on the Internet.

    Yes, I admit I got the crochet food bug! My Grand Daughter loves to “cook” on her play stove so I had to make her some food! So far she has, a slice of pizza, oreo and sugar cookies, bacon, eggs, toast with butter, and a kid size birthday cake! I also make her a crocheted tea set for
    tea parties – who know what the next project will be. She loves them and I love seeing her eyes
    light up when I come up with a new food!

    I have crocheted desserts as Christmas decor and stocking stuffers. I would like to crochet more – I can always say they are for my toddler but really I just think it’s cute!

    I have crocheted miniature vegetables, pepperoni pizza, pretzels, Oreo cookie, ice cream sandwich, individual party cakes, regular size cakes, slices of pie, sandwiches, triple-decker ice cream cone, single soft-serve ice cream cone, eggs, pumpkins, valentine box of chocolates (including the chocolates in individual wrappers), cupcakes, and a milkshake with a striped straw.

    I’ve only made an ice cream cone for my (then) 19 yr old son and a cupcake for my (then) 15 y/o daughter. The cupcake was cool…..brown for the cake and pink boucle for the icing.

    I have made several Birthday cupcakes, miniture Birthday cakes and one “real size” Birthday Cake for my friend’s 40th Birthday. It makes a cute Birthday Gift that will last for years and totally calorie free!

    Fortune cookies from Lion Brand’s website, peanuts & salad from “Tasty Crochet” and the Tic-Tac-Toast game from “Crochet Your Cares Away” – a giant piece of bread with four pieces of bacon for the # and ten fried eggs for the playing pieces!
    Oh, and a slice of cake currently in progress.

    Last year for Christmas I crocheted a cornucopia for my kids with crocheted: apple, mini pumpkin, eggplant, carrot, celery, grapes, squash, and a banana. They love them! I crocheted them with organic cotton yarn and stuffed them with bamboo fiber fill. We are not big fans of plastic (aka acrylic and polyester).

    Oh! There was also an ear of corn with a husk that peels down half-way! How could I forget that?
