Crochet fun and whimsical food wearables with author and designer, Twinkie Chan
Author and crochet pattern designer Twinkie Chan describes herself as "that girl who makes food scarves." Her garments are based on food that is not only fun to eat, but also fun to wear, with larger-than-life vegetables, fruits and other crochet foods. If you have ever wondered how to crochet food, "Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies: 20 Yummy Treats to Wear" (Andrews McMeel Publishing) is filled with fun-loving wearable crochet food like a chocolate cupcake hat, a lemon coconut cake and tissue cozy and lots of crochet food scarves, including spaghetti and meatballs, a giant carrot and even a sushi scarf. Her PDF pattern for crochet popcorn would make a fabulous holiday garland that never goes bad.
If you'd rather not learn how to crochet food yourself, check out Twinkie Chan's Etsy shop where she sells fun accessories like cheeseburger mitts, a pepperoni pizza brooch and a sweet strawberry scarf (pictured above).
