Picnic Food Crochet Tutorial – Crochet Applique Tutorial


Hello everyone, thank you for joining me,
I’m Kerri. Today I’ll be showing you how to crochet the food and the basket to go
on the picnic table I made a couple of weeks ago. The size for the picnic table
with all the food on it made in 8 ply wool is 16 centimeters by 20 centimeters,
or 6.25 inches by 8 inches. The medium picnic table, this 1 here,
crocheted using 4 ply crochet cotton is 11.5 centimeters by 14.5
centimeters, or 4.5 inches by 5.75 inches. I do have the sizes of the
individual pieces, so I’ll put them in the description below and also on my
website with my pattern. I’ll be using 4 ply crochet cotton
today. I’ve got white, yellow, green and red. I’ve got scissors, a 1.5 millimeter
crochet hook. A darning needle to weave in the ends. Sewing thread and a needle
to stitch them together and the black thread is to embroider seeds on the
watermelon. Now I’m going to start with the watermelon. I’m going to start on
this center part with the red. I make a magic loop, so I make a circle like that,
put the yarn around the hook and bring the hook with the yarn through the
circle, and there’s my magic loop. And then I work 1 chain and 4 single
crochet into the circle. A single crochet is called a double crochet in the UK.
For a single crochet I put my hook into the circle through the front and
bring back a loop. Yarn around the hook and take the hook with the yarn at the
end through both loops. I need 3 more single crochet. And then I take hold of
the tail and ease the circle in. For row 2 I start with 1 chain and turn my work
and I work 2 single crochet into each stitch. For row 3 I start with 1 chain and turn my
work. I work 1 single crochet into the first stitch. 2 single crochet into the
following stitch and then 1 single crochet into the next stitch. And I’m
going to repeat that across the row. So 2 single crochet into the next stitch
and 1 single crochet into the following stitch and just repeat. 2
single crochet into the next stitch and 1 into the following stitch. And then
work 2 single crochet into the last stitch. And that’s the center part of the
watermelon done except for a neatening row just across the top there. So I’m
going to work a slip stitch into each stitch across the top. For a slip stitch
I put the hook into the stitch, bring through a loop and take it straight through
the loop on the hook. And I’ll work 1 slip stitch in each stitch across the
top. I’m not going to pull it too tight. I’ve got a slip stitch in each stitch, so
I fasten off. And that’s the center part of the
watermelon done. I’ll just weave in those ends so they
don’t get in the way. Now I’m going to start on this thin white line now. So I
join my white cotton in the first stitch and I’m going to work 1 slip
stitch in each stitch, just around the curve. For a slip stitch I put my hook
into the stitch, bring through a loop and take it straight through the loop on my hook. Slip stitch in the top of the last
stitch and fasten off. Now I’ll just weave in those ends to
make it easier to see while I’m crocheting the next row. Now I work the
green rind next, so I join it in the first stitch on the white and I’m going
to work a slip stitch into each stitch, but into the back loop only. So just into
that loop there. That will just make the white a very thin line of white show up.
So one slip stitch into each stitch around the curve. I apologize for my voice, I’m still
getting over the flu and at times I’m having trouble getting the words to come
out properly. Then just slip stitch into the top there and fasten off. And that’s the crocheting on the
watermelon done. Now I’ll start on a sauce bottle next. I’m going to use red, but
I’ll also make a yellow 1. So I start with 6 chain. For row 1 I miss the first chain and work
1 single crochet into each stitch to the end. A single crochet is called a
double crochet in the UK. For row 2 I work 1 chain and turn my work
and work 1 single crochet into each of the 5 stitches. Then I work 1 chain and I slip stitch in to
that first chain that I missed, just in there and then I work 1 chain and
fasten off. The chain is for the top of the bottle. And that’s the sauce bottle
finished. Now for the glass, I start at the bottom and I’m using my yellow I
work 3 chain. For row 1 I miss the first chain and work 1
single crochet into each of the remaining 2 chain. A single crochet is
a double crochet in the UK. For row 2 I start with 1 chain and turn my work. I
work 1 single crochet in the first stitch and 2 single crochet into the
last stitch. And for row 3 I start with 1 chain and turn my work and work
1 single crochet into each of the 3 stitches. And that’s the glass done except for a neatening row. For the neatening row, we work 1 slip stitch in each stitch down the
sides and along the bottom. Slip stitch into the top and fasten off. And that’s the bottom of the glass done.
I’ll just weave in the ends and we’ll do the top bit. Now for the top of the glass
we join our white in the first stitch along the top and work 1 chain and we
work 1 single crochet into each stitch along the top and fasten off. And that’s the glass.
I’ve just got to crochet a straw now. For the straw, using my white I just crochet 10 chain and fasten off. Now for the small basket, I’m using my
white. I start with 10 chain. For row 1 I miss the first chain and work 1
single crochet into each stitch to the end. For row 2 I start with 1 chain and turn my
work and work 1 single crochet into the first stitch and I’m going to work a
double crochet into the bottom of the next stitch. So the bottom of the next
stitch is that chain, just at the bottom there. A double crochet is called a
treble in the UK. For a double crochet I put the yarn around the hook. Hook in
to the bottom of the stitch and bring through a loop. Yarn around the hook, hook and
yarn through 2 loops. Yarn around the hook and take it through the next 2
loops. Then I work a single crochet into the next stitch and then a double
crochet into the bottom of the following stitch, just down there in the bottom of
the chain. And then we repeat that across the row. A
single crochet into the next stitch and a double crochet into the bottom of the
following stitch. I’m working a single crochet into the
next stitch and a double crochet into the bottom of the following stitch. And I work a single crochet into the top
of the last stitch. For row 3 I start with 1 chain and turn my work. I
work 1 double crochet into the bottom of the first stitch and then a single
crochet into the top of the next stitch and I repeat that across. 1 double
crochet into the bottom of the next stitch, so just down in there at the
bottom and a single crochet into the next stitch and I’m repeating that all
the way across. A double crochet into the bottom of the next stitch and a single
crochet into the following stitch. And then I work a double crochet into
the bottom of the last stitch. For row 4 I start with 1 chain and turn. I
work a single crochet into the first stitch and then I work a double crochet
into the bottom of the next stitch. And a single crochet into the next stitch and
a double crochet into the bottom of the following stitch, and I repeat that
across. A single crochet into the next stitch and a double crochet into the
bottom of the following stitch. And I end with a single crochet in the
last stitch, and that’s the basket done. We’re going to do a neatening row around
the side and the bottom. So we start with 1 chain and work a single crochet into
each stitch down the first side. Into the corner stitch work 1 single crochet, 1 chain and 1 single crochet. Then we
work 1 single crochet into each stitch along the bottom to the corner stitch. Into the corner stitch work 1 single
crochet, 1 chain and 1 single crochet. And then work 1 single crochet into
each stitch up the side. Now for along the top I start with 2
chain and I’m going to work 1 half double crochet into each stitch along
the top. A half double crochet is called a half treble in the UK. For a half
double crochet put the yarn around the hook. Hook into the first stitch and
bring up a loop. Yarn around the hook and take the hook with the yarn at the end
through all the loops. And repeat that in each stitch across. So I’ll just finish this row and I’ll
meet you at the end. Now I’m at the end of the row I turn my work and slip
stitch into the first and second stitches and then I work 16 chain
for the handle. And then I slip stitch into the second
last stitch at the end of the basket, so just in there and then I turn my work
and I’m going to work 1 single crochet into each of my chain. Then I slip stitch into the same stitch
on the basket and fasten off. And that’s the basket done. Now I’ll just
work another sauce bottle in a different color and another glass and
weave in my ends and I’ll be back to put it together. Now there’s my pieces. I’ve
got the basket, 2 glasses, 2 straws, the watermelon and 2 sauce bottles. The
first things I’ll do is embroider seeds on the watermelon and attach the straws
in behind the glasses and I’ll just bend the straw over at the top a bit. And I’ll
also attach the sauce bottles to the basket, just at the bottom there like
that. And there’s the finished food and basket
to go on the picnic table. I haven’t stitched them on yet, but will
before I attach them to the teddy bears picnic blanket. If you’ve liked my video
