Pink grapefruit!

Yet another citrus fruit, and my favorite, pink grapefruit! I did not magnetize these because I ran out of magnets, but obviously just sew some in if you want magnetic grapefruit.

  1. Hi! I don't know if you still read this, but I want to thank you for all the patterns for vegetables and fruits. I had a job for a friend who wanted crochet veggies, so I searched around, and you definitely had the best versions...realistic, but so easy! You rock!!! I hope you are still at it.
