Crochet Pattern: Eggplant Play Food

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on September 15th, 2012 by Emilee Gettle – 2 Comments
Our produce is finally starting to slow down in our massive gardens. Looking back, one of our most prolific crops was eggplant! It is one of my husband’s favorite vegetables. It takes a bit of creativity to come up with new recipes to use up our bountiful harvest. Thankfully he never seems to tire of the cooking experiments!

If you choose to use wool yarn you could even felt the eggplant. Have fun!
