Crochet Cheese Burger Bean Bag / Foot Bag Pattern

Cheeseburger Foot Bag / Bean Bag
DSC09804 (1).JPG
Design by: Heather Wells


Note: You don’t have to find the exact colors I used for your cheeseburger.  There is a huge color selection of embroidery thread.  I am only providing the colors I used, in case you want the exact colors you see in my cheeseburgers.


Materials:
U.S. 1 / 2.35 mm crochet hook
Stuffing: Poly-Fil  poly -pellets for stuffing
DMC Embroidery Thread as Follows


Buns: 3 -842, and 1 ecru (optional- ecru is the lighter color at the edges)
Sesame seeds: 1 Blanc
Lettuce: 1 -3364
Tomato: 1 -321
Red Onion: 1 Blanc, 1 -209
Cheese: 1 -742
Meat: 1 -938, 1 -610 (optional- the second color is a lighter brown to give an almost grill like effect to the meat)


Helpful Hint.  you can put the toppings in any order you wish, leave toppings out etc.  Think of this project as three sections, the increase portion, the middle (11 rows), and the decrease portion.  


The increase section + 1 - 2 rnds is your top bun
8-9 rnds of toppings
1 row + decrease rnds bottom bun


You can add or take away a rnd in the middle without affecting the shape too much if you need to. Here is how much height the toppings take up


lettuce 1 rnd, tomato 2 rnds, red onion 1 rnd, cheese 1 rnd, meat 3 rnds


Add your topping rows together before making your burger if you wish to change the toppings, here are two examples
Cheeseburger Double Cheeseburger
Top Bun 1 rnd Top Bun 2 rnds
Lettuce 1 rnd Cheese 1 rnd
Tomato 2 rnds Meat 3 rnds
Red onion 1 rnd Cheese 1 rnd
Cheese 1 rnd Meat 3 rnds
Meat 3 rnds Bottom Bun 1 rnd  = 11 rnds
Lettuce 1 rnd
Bottom Bun 1 rnd= 11 rows

Round 2: Ch 1, 2sc in each sc around.  Join with a slip st to 1st sc. (12 sc)


Round 3:  Ch 1, *sc in next sc, 2sc in next sc. Repeat from * 5 times. Join with a slip st to 1st sc. (18 sc)

Body (Toppings and Meat)
If you want sesame seeds,  cut a long piece of blanc, and add some now.  I just scatter them, across the top of the bun randomly.  I weave them in with the crochet hook, but you may want to do it with a yarn needle.
  
Remember the top bun will have one or two more rows, the bottom bun will one row in this section
**If you are using ecru round 10 is in ecru, if not round 10 is still in color 842


Round  10: Ch 1, sc in each sc around. Join with a slip st to 1st sc. (54 sc)
