Pass the Dip ~ Crochet Veggie Tray!



Hi everyone!

I am so excited to show your the yummy crocheted veggie tray with dip that I just finished!


They were so fun and easy to make!

My dear friend Lynne sent me this wonderful book Yummi' Gurumi , and I cannot wait to make everything inside of it!

As soon as it arrived, I pulled out my yarn stash of little leftovers and got started!

The projects are so creative, fun, fast and delicious to make.

I had so much fun making them that I even got a second book, Tasty Crochet, which has the pattern for the aspargus and a whole lot more.



Each book is packed with different patterns to create fiber filled fun!


Breakfast * Lunch * Dinner * Desserts


Archie cannot wait to try some!


Tee Hee!



It is the perfect way to use up the tiny balls of yarn I have left over from other projects.

I made wool mushrooms, cashmere celery, baby alpaca radish slices, bamboo olives and acrylic carrots! :)



Mushrooms



Broccoli & Cauliflower



Cauliflower, Broccoli & Asparagus


Peas in a pod & Dip



Radish slices, mushrooms, & olives



Ta Da!


I am going to make the little cakes next!


I cannot wait tot show you when they are done!



I displayed them in the dining room next to my crocheted fruit collection that I made last summer and under my wall hanging Emmitt & I finished in January!




Fun! Fun! Fun!


What fun things are you doing today?


Please leave us a note and let us know!


We cannot wait to hear all about it!

I just love all your crochet veggies and fruit Melissa, they just make me smile. I could eat that grapefruit for breakfast!
Does Archie ever make a bee-line for them? If something even vaguely resembles a soft toy, Bridget and Elliot are after it.
Can't wait to see your next project!
Hugs, Lynne xx

Love it!!! Will you be selling anything like this in your etsy shop?? I am a dietitian and would LOVE crocheted veggies to put in my office!

Mr. Pip said...

OMD, the little mushrooms are SO CUTE! I bet you could sell lots of these to little kids! They would make a great alternative to all the yucky plastic food in the toy stores.

Your pal, Pip
