Mini-Me Handcrafts - Google Android Statues

I was set a huge challenge a short time ago. Leanne had seen some of my handmade creations on madeit including my little cupcake pincushion. She emailed to ask if I could create a cupcake and a froyo similar to the Google Android statues.

 For those of you that don't know what I am talking about (and I didn't either until this challenge), Android is Google's mobile device software. Each new version is developed under a code name based on a dessert item - so far the updates are Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread and Honeycomb. There is a giant dessert statue for each of these outside Google Headquarters and these statues are what I was asked to recreate in crochet.

A challenge - yes! But then I made it even harder by attempting to recreate ALL of them. So I set to work, and here are the finished products: 
Android - Cupcake - Donut - Gingerbread

Eclair - Froyo - Honeycomb - The whole lot!

I hope you like these Leanne! Now I'm off to make some new creations - I've found a beautiful crochet doll I'd like to make!

  1. Blimey, Christine these are brilliant !! And you said you weren't creative. I wish I could crochet, I used to have some great crocheted trousers that I wore all the time, but of course I wore them out. It's a beautiful skill to have.
    Well done !!

  2. You are a clever cookie! They are very cute :)

  3. One more to do now :) Icecream sandwich!!

  4. It's a new challenge - thanks! ~ Christine xx
