Tea Time!


Miniature sized tea cup and chocolate biscuit with vanilla cream. On a handphone strap!

Made this for a friend as a belated birthday gift. I came up with the patterns on my own.. and I'm posting it here to share!

PAUSE AND READ THIS! : If anyone wants to repost/use the pattern, please do credit me(Shaunie Ng). Also, the patterns are for personal use only(eg. for yourself, family or gift for a friend). Please do not sell this pattern or items made from this pattern without my permission!

You will need:
- Yarn
- Felt
- size 3 crochet hook

Chocolate Biscuit + Vanilla Cream

The Chocolate Biscuit (make 2)
Row 1 : sc 6 in Magic Ring (6)
Row 2 : inc all the way around (12)
Slip stitch to finish off, leave a long tail and cut.


The Vanilla Cream
Row 1 : sc 5 in Magic Ring (5)
Row 2 : inc all the way around (10)
Slip stitch to finish off, cut, and weave in ends.

Arrange the layers so that the 'correct side' of the biscuit is on the outside. Using a crochet needle, pull the long tails from one of the brown biscuits, through the vanilla cream and all the way out to the other side. Do the same for the other piece of biscuit. Repeat for both biscuits in opposite directions until the 3 layers are secured in place.

Tea Cup

The Cup
Row 1 : sc 6 in Magic Ring (6)
Row 2 : inc all the way around (12)
Row 3~5 : sc in each stitch (12)
Slip stitch. Then ch 6.(This forms the handle)
Finish off and leave a long tail. Cut.

Using a crochet needle, pull the long tail from inside the cup. You can either weave in the ends, or tie a few dead knots with the long tail from the chain and the long tail left from the magic ring. Stuff everything inside the cup.

The Plate
Row 1 : sc 6 in Magic Ring (6) [leave a long tail]
Row 2 : inc all the way around (12)
Row 3 : inc all the way around (24)
Slip stitch to finish off. Cut and weave in ends(do not weave in the tail from the magic ring).

Using a crochet needle, pull the tail (from the magic ring) into the cup. Go a few rounds to secure the cup in place. Make a dead knot inside the cup. Stuff excess into the cup.

Cut a round piece of brown felt which is approximately 12mm in diameter. Squeeze some UHU glue into the cup, and press the felt in place.

Ta-da!

You can use different coloured yarn for variation. You can even make, say for example, strawberry cream biscuits with a cup of hot chocolate(just switch the brown felt to dark brown felt)! And then you can attach metal rings and what-nots. Make it into a keychain, handphone charm, or household items for your dolls, etc.

Have fun and happy crocheting!
