These are the only brussel sprouts I would choose on Christmas Day! I am not the biggest fan of brussel sprouts, but even I have to admit that these sprouts with googly eyes make for cute christmas tree decorations. Each brussel sprout has been hand crocheted from 100% acrylic yarn in either dark green or light green, with a red and white twine hanging cord. The sprouts are stuffed with toy stuffing and have googly eyes affixed to the bauble with glue. The brussel sprouts themselves measure 5cmx5cmx3cm approx and the hanging twine is approximately 11cm (untied). Made buy the fellow sprout hater https://twitter.com/okthenwhatsnext on twitter.
