Crochet Food Series: Crochet Tomato Pattern

I have now completed crochet play food eggs, sausages and mushrooms. Now I have added some tomatoes to the group! I have done them in two sizes a small and a large another ensigns bit of a mix in sizes as I didn’t want them all the same! I need to have a bit of a think of what to go for next, I have a few ideas in mind but can not quite decide which to go for, I have seen some patterns for some cool looking doughnuts  so might go for those, or I might try and do some biscuits – If I have time I might do both! I think there is going to be quite a lot of food by the time I have finished!!
