I finally got this post done! The 5 vegetables I crocheted for my daughter for part of her Christmas gift. The patterns I found were very straightforward and easy to follow and if you are new to crochet, and you have a bit of patience, you can easily create these sweet little veggies!
I love that my daughter is the perfect age to enjoy these sweet veggies in her play kitchen! She loves them and regularly coos at them and gives them hugs before enjoying them for a pretend supper.
VEGETABLE EYES – For all of my vegetables, I added little black beaded eyes to them. I bought a pack of crafting eyes off of Amazon. I love how easy they are to apply and that there are several sizes I can use. Click here to see what I purchased.
Now onto the veggies…here are where you can find all of these wonderful free patterns!
This was the first veggie I made and it made me so confident to create more! It didn’t turn out perfectly, but the nice thing about crochet is that you usually can’t tell if you make small mistakes and mine still turned out cute! One of Laurel’s favourite foods is avocado so this one was a real hit when she opened it up for Christmas.
This pattern is made my Repeat Crafter Me and can be found in the link below.
I think this one might be my favourite that I created! I love the leaves and I was happy to see how easy it was to switch colors in the middle of the radish. I added eyes to this one, even though the pattern does not include them. Just add them during the stuffing stage before you add all the stuffing!
This wonderful pattern was created by Knitted Story Bears and can be found in the link below.
The carrot was a quicker one to make because it is pretty tiny. It would be an easy one to make several of if you want to make a bunch of them.
The carrot pattern I followed is by Jen Hayes Creations and can be found in the link below.
This one took the longest to make. You have to create a green ball first and then 8 leaves that you then attach with your yarn needle after. It took me a couple days working on it every now and then to get it done. Maybe a total of 3 hours? With a toddler running around it was hard to find a large length of time to work on it. It turned out great though and I am glad I made it!
The cabbage pattern was also created by Jen Hayes Creations and can be found in the below link.
This was the quickest vegetable to crochet. I was able to complete it in around 20 min. I had already practiced making circles, so it was quite easy to make, especially because it is not very big.
The Tomato pattern was created by Jen Hayes Creations and you can find it in the link below.
I hope you enjoy creating some of these as much as I did! Happy crafting.
