Most of us have a hobby. Some play musical instruments, some computer games or take up painting, drawing. Some instead spend their free time crocheting. It's a relaxing hobby and you might even get a scarf or blanket out of it! However, teacher and artist Normalynn Ablao took crocheting to another level and showed what you can really do with it.

Normalynn creates amazing-looking food out of thread. Her creations are so delicious-looking they often leave you hungry. But taking a bite would probably be a bad idea. The artist even turns her crochet cakes into purses and all kinds of other useful things. Normalynn sells the patterns she uses on her Etsy page, so if you want to make something similar, check it out.

On her website, Normalynn writes: "Crochet Cake Sachets was born in 2006 and is channeled to solely benefit charities. Its original website of 9 years was www.normalynn.info and served as a great tool for this personal project in helping promote crafters and crocheters to benefit non-profit organizations. The new goal now is to have my site web-based and at no cost to continue providing free patterns!"

"I am a non-profit intermediary helping to raise funds for non-profit organizations. The reward is fourfold: crocheting is therapeutic; contributing to charity provides the support it needs; helping to improve the welfare of the environment, people and animals are self-fulfilling; and all makes me happier each time. Every cake is 100% cotton, handmade, and crocheted by me. It's also my way of being able to enjoy sweets while skirting the calories, though I instantly succumb to chocolate-dipped organic strawberries. I hope you enjoy the guilt-free cakes as much as I enjoyed making them!"

Normalynn tells us what the main goal of her crochet is: "My main purpose through my crochet work is to share joy, even if my art attracts someone who can’t crochet, but simply makes them wonder and smile. I’m excited to offer patterns to help an individual who can crochet joyfully participate in this process."

Here's how the artist got into crocheting: "While walking through a department store, I was mesmerized when saw a woman’s top with a flower made of yarn stitched to it. I wanted to purchase the garment in a heartbeat, but it was beyond my budget. Instead, I went to our local yarn store and described what I saw and the staff member informed me that the flower was made from crochet. I learned to crochet that same day! That was 20 years ago and I have designed my own flower since along with a smorgasbord of fiber food. I created my Pasta Party pieces in 2013. It is one of my most popular patterns. I will crochet these pieces until the demand stops."

"The most challenging aspect when creating these art pieces is time. My mind operates exponentially quicker than my hands. And often while I am crocheting a piece, my mind is already visualizing the 3D configuration of the next piece. Having my notebook and pen within arm’s reach is needed for me to quickly write down the evolving pattern."

"Crochet continues to amaze me. I treat the crochet hook like a pen, and when working with yarn, it’s as if I’m writing in cursive, which reflects beauty and grace. With my profound appreciation for edible art, I am grateful for my ability to create fiber food for all of us to enjoy its transient nature over and over again," shared Normalynn when asked what inspires her to keep moving forward. "Follow your heart and everything falls into place! Be you and live your true essence."

So creative! I wish I was good at crocheting. I've been making my brother a green scarf since 2007.

Shrimps and tortellinis?

Normalynn tells us more about herself and her life: "I’ve been an educator for 16 years with the last three years as a preschool teacher. I am currently a stay-at-home mom homeschooling my preschool daughter. I have traveled around the world and have a keen interest in unified physics, biomimicry, natural healthcare, and education. I’d be ecstatic to someday converge my love for crochet with a science-oriented interest of mine to help humanity in another particular way."
