A Few Things About Me

  1. Unfortunately, the wire that is holding him up is pretty thick. It pretty much fills the stem so sticking another one in there with it is going to be tough. A friend of mine has suggested trying floral wire, since it's thin but pretty strong. I'm going to get some this weekend and try to weave it into the back of the stem. It was actually supposed to be more Mario piranha plant inspired. But I've had more than a few people tell me it reminds them of Audrey. So I guess it's just your run-of-the-mill friendly neighborhood flesh-eating plant.
  2. Last night I finished putting together a Piranha Plant amigurumi ( Picture attached- sorry its sideways. Doing this on my phone). I used a bendable thick wire as support for it in the stem, thinking it would be neat if he were posable. This morning when I woke up, he was drooping with his head near the table. Turns out the wire isn't strong enough to support the poor guy's head for more than a few hours! It's super sewn in, attached to a foam ball in his head and a foam ball in the base. It would be nearly impossible to get it out and replace it without ruining the piece... Is there any way I could stiffen the yarn that makes up the stem to keep him standing? Glue? Some sort of magical crochet hardening concoction?
