Hello,

Here is a crochet fruit cake, from Tomoko Fujita's "Knit Room".  It was supposed to be a tea cosy, but I added a base to make it a stuffie.  Because what is better than stuffed food?

I used seed beads to add details to the strawberries and the kiwi slices.  The strawberry slices have little bits of stuffing on them to give that white streak in the middle.

I would have entered it into the food challenge -- but the rules state that you need an original pattern.  So I'll post it here instead.

Hope you enjoy!

That turned out great!  Love the bead detail.  Almost good enough to eat.

The book is fantastic.  There are about ten patterns in it, but you could combine them to make new ones pretty easily.
