I made some crochet lime earrings a little while ago... and then I went nuts making tiny crochet fruit. I used embroidery floss and a size 1 crochet hook. Each pair took about an hour and a half.

I ended up with limes, lemons, cherries, and oranges



The oranges aren't quite orange enough.... but oh well. I also made some chilli peppers, but they look kinda... lumpy so I didn't take pictures.

I'm happy to share the crochet patterns with anyone who's interested.

those are really cool. & they came out beautifully. + you have a lot of patience to take an hour and a half each to do them!

They totally ROCK!  I bow to your genius, I am not worthy! 

Superb photos too btw.

Could I have the pattern/s please?  I know they will be in US terms, but I just have to make some of these somehow!

Those are really cute.  And since you don't think the oranges are orange enough, just call them grapefruits Smiley
