Adorable Fruits & Vegetables To Crochet Review

Adorable Fruits & Vegetables To Crochet Review

This is a well-made little book with wonderfully cute designs. There are numerous photos of the completed fruits and vegetables, but no step-by-step photos. Instead, the instructions offer traditional stitching guides, along with additional text descriptions of the...
