Going back some thirty years, I used to do loads of crochet, before life got in the way and other things took up my time. One thing that I remember making were some bonbon dishes - I made loads of them for Christmas one year, filling them with chocolates.
They were made more or less like a doily, but with fewer increases on each row so that they didn't lie flat, then soaked in sugar starch and put over a bowl to dry into shape.
There is a produce / craft fair coming up soon in our village and I like the idea of making something retro like that to enter, but unfortunately I got rid of all my craft patterns some 10 years ago (something which I bitterly regret now, as I had a great collection of knitting, crochet and sewing patterns that would be so useful to me now) when DH decided that we should move abroad to live (a short-lived experiment, as I hated it). I've tried Googling such things but with no success.
I don't suppose any Gransnetters have any such patterns that they could share, do they? There is a produce / craft fair coming up soon in our village and I like the idea of making something retro like that to enter
