Sandwiches

Normally I have everything ready for Tuesday’s blog post by Monday night. Everything is finished, the pictures are done… Not this time. I woke up this morning and I still had bacon ends to weave and crusts to sew on bread. So… This is a little later than I usually like to update, but here it is!

What do you do when you spill strawberry milkshake on your stuffing? Make a project that doesn’t need any stuffing! I started this before I got more stuffing, just in case I wasn’t able to get any. It’s quite a complex project. There’s a lot of different pieces, there’s some tricky sewing and some stripes… And don’t be like me and wait to sew all the ends in at the same time. I have blisters.

Materials:

  • I used worsted weight in maroon, cream, red, dark green, medium brown, light brown; and sport weight in yellow and medium green.
  • G-sized crochet hook. The pieces take shape pretty quickly so if you find it’s too big or small for your preference, go with a bigger or smaller hook.
  • Scissors to cut the yarn.
  • Hot glue gun and glue, optional.
  • Safety pin, optional.
  • A needle with an eye big enough for yarn.

Part of this is worked in continuous rounds. Use a stitch marker to keep your place and move it up as you complete rows. I use a safety pin and just put it through the last stitch of a round. Your lettuce and pickles will be bigger than mine- they were made in sport weight and I didn’t want to mess with scaling it up.

Assembly
The only thing that really needs to be assembled is the bread and it’s a little tricky. Line up 2 of the bread forms one on top of the other and glue or sew them together. It’s important that you DO NOT sew the edges together. You will be sewing the crust to the edges separately.

Starting with row one of the crust, sew the long side around the edge of one of the bread forms.

When you get to the end, you may need to take out or add some rows into the crust. To take some out, just undo the knot and pull out however many rows you need. To add some, join with sc and just add however many rows you need. I needed to take out 1-3 rows from all of my crusts except one, which I had to add a row to.

Sew crust ends together and sew the other side to the edge of the other bread form.
