Here's the crochet pattern I came up with for the Fry-Up handbag!

(note: the bacon on this bag is knitted - I don't have a photo of the crochet bacon, unfortunately)

CROCHET Bacon and Eggs
Adapted from the 1979 Jackie Magazine Fry-Up Knitted Handbag Pattern (thanks to the Cult45 Bookshop website; check out the Knitalong at Sheep in the City ).

Abbreviations:
sl = slip
ch = chain
sc = single crochet (American)
hdc = half double crochet (American)
dc = double crochet (American)
MC = main color
CC = contrast color

Gauge: 20sts/16rows = 4/10cm

Notes:
No yarn amounts given small enough so that I use scraps.
Eggs: Leave long tails with the MC and then stuff the tails into the back of the yolk to keep it supported.
Bacon: Size can be adjusted easily

EGGS
Large eggs (about diameter)
G/6 4.25mm hook
Worsted weight yarn, yellow[MC] and white[CC]
Chain 5, join to form loop
1) 2 hdc in ea st
2) 2 hdc every 2nd st
3) 2 hdc every 3rd st
4) 2 hdc every 4th st
5) work 1 round even
6) switch to CC.  2 hdc ea st.
7) 2 hdc every 2nd st
8. 2 hdc every 3rd st
9) 2 hdc every 4th st

Small eggs (about 3 diameter)
G/6 4.25mm hook
Worsted weight yarn, yellow (MC) and white (CC)
Ch 6, join
1) single crochet twice in each (12)
2) join with sl st, ch1.  hdc in first st, hdc twice in every 2nd st
3) join with sl st, ch1.  hdc in each st.
4) join with sl st, ch1.  *hdc in two sts, hdc twice in 3rd st*
5) join with sl st.  Using CC, ch 1.  2 hdc in ea st.
6) join with sl st, ch1. hdc in first st, hdc twice in every 2nd st
7) join with sl st, ch1, hdc twice in every 3rd st

BACON
G/6 4.25mm hook
Worsted weight yarn, dark red [MC] and cream [CC]

With MC, ch 52
1) dc in 3rd st fr hk.  dc all rem
2) change to CC, cut MC.  Ch1, single crochet all.
3) change to MC, cut CC, leaving a tail at least as long as the piece.  Ch1, sc all.
4) change to CC, cut MC.  Ch2, dc all.
5) change to MC, cut CC, leaving a tail at least as long as the piece.  Sl st all. 
Cut yarn and weave in MC ends.
Using a tapestry needle and the long tail of CC, do a running stitch through the CC rows: on the right side, the width of one stitch, on the wrong side, the width of 3 10 stitches (try to make it fairly random).  Repeat with the second tail.  Pull gently on the tail ends, gathering the bacon into ruffles.  Adjust to your preferred look and knot the tail ends.

That is so funny!  I love the first picture, too, with the knife and fork, like you're all ready to dig in to your "meal".  Yet another pattern I need to bookmark.
