After completing my crochet fried eggs and sausages I have started on another food item to go with them – button mushrooms! Can’t have a fry up without some mushrooms with it, also mushrooms seem to sneak into most meals I make so thought they would be perfect for a child’s play food. Both the pattern and the mushrooms themselves were really easy to make and I had them all finished in an evening. Now to get cracking on the next food item! Think I might do some tomatoes!!
