I am debating whether I should release him or not. I wrote to the pattern and everything. He’s just a complicated fellow, and has one major flaw…
…he takes a nose dive when he’s not held up.
I figured out an easy way to make him stand! Thank you to everyone who made suggestions, i decided to give him a “doorstop” of sorts.
Hes cute i like him!
The flaw? Eveyone has flaws Its okay maybe he has just a little bit more weight on the back, that may be the reason
maybe fill with some beans to stabilize some weight on his backside?
How cute, if you want to, go for it I believe there’s weighted polyfill that could also help or stuffing more at the bottom could help it to note if you make it a pattern
It definitely needs some weight in the back . It just wont be easy now that hes sewn together
Yeah, he needs the weight, just debating how to get it in there now that he’s sewn together.
Yeah I’ve been trying to think of something, like maybe a fishing weight, a little bean bag, etc. I jst realltly dont want to undo him, he was so hard to put together, took me the better part of two hours
You could always make him a gf lol and try on her then see. Dont stress yourself out trying to figure it out
DO IT!!! I would absolutely LOVE to test this for you if you did!
No worries I think he’s fine as he is! If you plan on making a pattern you can create another for the photos and this time stuff it differently if you want to help Flip right now I think you can try and make something like maybe a blanket but it’s a thin crochet rectangle with weighted stuffing to hold him down if that makes sense
if there was a open spot, where you want the additional weight? in the banana peel or the actual banana itself?
i would think you could re-sew the end of the banana that way, but i do understand that it takes time & messing up the project
I was think of hiding something on the back of the bottom peel behing his “foot”
I love him! Flaws and all!
You can make him a potted plant for him to eat. Just put it in front of him.
I’ve seen some people use these beads with flat bottoms to correct wobbly makes too.
I keep those square glass cubes on hand from the dollar store, they work great for weighting amigurumi down.
PLEASE make this pattern!!!
For my plants so they stand, I cut a piece of cardboard so it fits in the pot and I use poly pellets too! I reccomend polly pellets for smaller projects.
You might be able to fix the nose dive if you pull the underpeel forward a bit and bubble it under his belly like a doorstop?
Omg, i frickin love him, defo release him
Also, maybe a longer tail would stabilize him a bit? If not just fill the booty with beans
