If you've been browsing the Etsy Hookers' shops lately, you'll have noticed an interesting trend: crochet food.
Not in a million years would I have imagined how popular crocheted food would become. I wonder when this started. What genius looked at a ball of purple yarn and thought, "Grapes"? Whoever it was, they started something. You can find just about every kind of food: donuts, popcorn, bananas and the ever popular cupcakes. Mmmm...cupcakes.
Anyway,it's too bad my daughter has outgrown the play food stage. Child's Play Crochet's chocolate chip cookies look good enough to eat! Some members' food items look like pieces of art. Have a gander at Yarnyums Fruit Tart. Wowie! I can just see that under glass as a conversation piece. Some are fashionable, like MayRae Crochet n Knit's Berry Wristlet. So cute. Some are just plan funny, like Home Hooked's Frightened Fruit Kabob. There is something for every taste (hahaha!).
If you're in the mood to cook something up yourself, there are a few Etsy Hookers selling patterns for food, like this cute egg potholder from Red Berry Crochet.
Anybody else hungry?
