Crochet Food Series: Crochet Fried Egg Pattern

IMG_4045

A friend of mine has two little ones who are needing some more play food for their play kitchen, so decided I would crochet some up for them as a gift for Easter to go with their chocolate eggs, they will last a lot longer than the chocolate which will be gone in minutes!

I wasn’t too sure what to make to start, so made a list of some foods to try and have started with what thought would be the easiest to make a pattern for – a egg for frying! Or a splattered cream egg since its Easter!

I cracked two of these up in no time and had them done in one evening, I am happy they have come out so well, and am glad I choose to put a stuffed dome on for the yolk at it makes them look even more realistic!

Not too sure what I will make next..I will keep you posted as soon as I have done something else!
