Crochet Toy Tea Pot

I got inspired to add food and food related items to my toy donation and it sent me back into books, leaflets, and patterns I own to try to see what fun stuff I could add to my donation. This teapot comes from Amigurumi Two!: Crocheted Toys for Me and You and Baby Toowhich I was sad to find had gone out of print. I rather love her books and they are my favorite ami books on my shelf. I guess this means I will just have to take better care of them as it will be harder to replace them.

This was a great stash busting project as I finished off the last of a pink Caron Pounder that had been hanging on for some time. One challenge I have with making containers in crochet is I find without putting some kind of container or reinforcement inside it doesn't hold it shape unless it is stuffed. This pattern didn't call for either. I made the decision to stuff my tea pot and sew the cover on as I was concerned it would likely not stay on even if I crocheted a cover for the top of the pot to keep the stuffing inside.

I've started work on the sugar bowl and am thinking about experimenting with a plan that might allow me to stuff the container and still allow the cover to come on and off to allow maximum pretend play with the play spoons and the sugar bowl. I'll have to see what happens as I move forward.

What a cute teapot. That looks like a great book with lots of fun projects. I'll have to see if my library carries it.

Such a cute teapot/sugar bowl!!! I pinned it to my Crafts and Sewing board so I could find it again, and also for my readers. :) I love simple sewing/craft projects that are fun to use as gifts and for just decorating around the home.

Thank you for a fun post,
Barb :)

HI! i LOVE CROCHETING!!! I'm making what they're calling a Kaleidoscope Shawl right now (it's for my sister-in-law's birthday, and I'm also working on some mickey & minnie coasters for my daughter for her house-warming present she wanted and last, but not least I'm working on a bedapron for my soon to be niece for her wedding shower present that she wanted. So I'm quite busy, but I can say the coasters & shawl is almost done! Woo Hoo Don't you feel really good when you finish something? I know I do. It builds my self-worth too! Thank you for sharing. They are wonderful. Bet my granddaughter would love something like this when she gets a bit older... she's not quite one yet. ~hehehe~ Thanks for sharing!
