Crochet Food Series: Crochet Strawberry Pattern (3 different Sizes)

No play food set can be complete without some yummy strawberries! I chose to make three different sizes and they came together in no time at all. I know these will be a big hit as they are one of the recipients favourite fruits.    

I have a few more ideas of some play food items to make, but I don’t think I will get them all made – there are just so many!
