Crochet Vegetables

After I created my “Vegetables Song” I thought it would be a great idea to offer an educational kit to go with the song. I love crocheting and I’ve got an idea to create a series of handmade vegetables which I would gladly sell to teachers, mothers or anyone who loves crocheted toys.


I thought that creating tangible child-appealing toys accompanying my song videos, experience sharing and images I create for my articles here would be a unique and attention-grabbing feature of my blog. You can see pictures of my crochet vegetables below. They are available for purchase for only $150  for the entire set of 11 crochet toys that can be used both for education and decoration purposes.

All the vegetables are made of high quality hypoallergenic acrylic yarn and stuffed with polyester fiberfill, so it is easily washable by hand and even machine washable on the delicate program. They are safe for your children and pets because they have no small parts to choke with. I crocheted these toys using my original pattern. Please, pay attention that since these toys are hand-crafted items your vegetables may be a little different in measurements and color from those in the picture.

This set of crocheted vegetables includes all the veggies mentioned in my Garden song, and namely:

  • carrot
  • cabbage
  • tomato
  • potato
  • pumpkin
  • cucumber
  • eggplant
  • corn
  • onion
  • beet
  • pepper

    1. Hi Gia.
      I have the patterns sketched on a notebook. But I can turn them into a good-looking printable PDF file if you are willing to pay for this job. The price for 11 patters would be $30 or $3 per a single pattern. Please, let me know if you are interested. See the “Contact Me” link below the blog banner at the top to send me an email if you wish.
