I get most of my books from the library, and last week, I found Tasty Cute by Annie Obaachan.
Attracted by the cupcakes on the cover, I checked it out.
Inside, there are a number of projects like sushi or little candies. Aren’t they cute?
It’s common for people to make these as cat toys. (Fill them with catnip!) However, there are things that I don’t understand. Example:
I guess, you could just frame it? But framed pizza doesn’t seem too appealing… and crochet is about the texture, especially on something as 3D as this. I don’t really know why.
But again, at least you could frame it. The most bizarre project is the salad:
(I couldn’t find a scan online, so I took a picture with my laptop camera, which isn’t that good. Sorry for the low quality.)
You can’t frame that salad, because every leaf, tomato, onion, and egg is a separate piece. In the picture, all these pieces are placed into a wooded salad bowl and you can literally toss it.
I suppose these would all be quite useful for a child’s toy kitchen. This way they’d only put pieces of yarn into their mouths, instead of choke-hazard small plastic pieces.
Would you make a crocheted salad?
