BBQ Play Food Part 1: Chicken Leg

The day is finally here to share the first part of my BBQ playfood collection. These patterns have been my baby for the last couple of months and they have all come together and I could not be more excited to share them with you! The first pattern is a BBQ chicken leg. It is kind of nostalgic for me because it reminds me of my childhood when I would rush home to watch the Flintstones cartoon. It was one of my favorites and makes me think of Fred Flintstone eating a ridiculously big Chicken Leg… or was it dinosaur? I’m not sure, but back to the topic of crochet, I hope you enjoy my take of the BBQ Chicken Leg play food. If you simply love the collection and don’t want to wait to make it! The ad free PDF download is available in my Etsy Shop and on Ravelry for a small fee. Thank you in advance for your support!
