very cool idea and they look really amazing all together like that.

though, styrofoam takes forever to decompose and is harmful to wildlife, so maybe you don't want to mention that part...

Agreed, they are super super cute, but I would NOT mention the styrofoam thing. It's seriously so horrible. It should be banned. And if you used acrylic yarn or felt, same.

Environmentally friendly or no, this is super super awesome Cheesy

Wow, what beautiful work and not to mention, patience! I love the fact that this is eco friendly too. Be honest now, was there a moment you got bored at anytime making all these fruits?

this is all true, the styrofoam was never taken into consideration.. however.. i guess i just assumed i never needed the stuffings of the fruits and veggies to decompose because i plan on keeping them and giving them as gifts..i should have done paper mache', which would have dealt with recycling , and if using water and flour been eco- friendly.. theres holes in my project, i know,  but its unfortunatly ironic that they are in fact made from styrofoam and the project deals with friends of the earth

how depressing.

Hehehehe...
I've been meaning to make a crocheted fruit alphabet in a similar vein, featuring Alfred the Angry Agate Avocado and the like. But once again, someone beat me to it.
Not that I'm complaining...XD.

the stickers make the perfect touch - you almost want to pick through them like at the supermarket.
