Cup of coffee anyone? This one was a bit of a challenge for me, and my coffee is sitting up a bit too high in the cup, but I'm glad I'm venturing into toys for kids. This would even make a nice pin cushion for someone who sews and loves coffee. Heck, it could be hot chocolate. I could crochet mini marshmallows on top. I mean it's a play toy, so we can play all sorts of make believe.
I purchased a crochet book filled with toy food for kids. However, her instructions are not that great. She leaves out some instructions and details, so if you are a newbie, you'd be saying "huh?" a lot.
How about a do-nut served on a plate? Plate is from my pattern book, but do-nut is free on the internet.
You say you want chocolate frosting? No problem.
You want sprinkles too? No problem.
You want that do-nut for a tree ornament? No problem. Red Heart yarn has the pattern for free online.
I finally got around to making my first, ever, chicken pot holder. I used a free tutorial on Youtube, but I think I would make some changes - ditch the hook in the center, make a wing (or not), and maybe make a second one and stitch together for double thickness. What would you do different? This could also be used as a dishcloth as is, and the hook would make it nice to hang and dry it. There pattern is one I like better, but it's sold on Etsy as a finished product, not the pattern.
