Crochet food

I love food. I love crochet. So when I found the book Tasty Crochet  I was in crochet-food heaven. I had an idea to make some play-food for my niece's birthday at the end of January. Eggs were the first thing on the menu and were actually quite easy to make.  Look how perfect my sunny-side-up is?

While I was photographing the finished results it reminded of other food inspired creations. 

Western Spaghetti (the video below) and the oscar nominated Fresh Guacamole by Pes , my hero.
It makes me want to animate my crochet food. It's calling out to move on screen...

But for now it remains animated only by my niece, when we have the biggest slice of chocolate cake for breakfast in bed. Perfect.

Horsing around with ribbons

I made these wee horses for two teething boys on my last visit to Ireland at the weekend. I love using ribbon and for some reason babies become obsessed with it at this age.
The fabric came from an old "Dunnes stores' t-shirt so it was lovely and soft, perfect for small hands to get a hold on, the ribbon mane was sewed in twice for extra strength and I guess the tail was the most interesting thing about the whole horsey...mmm straight in the mouth!
