This was a gift for my friend who is visiting from Pennsylvania. We met at a Nine Inch Nails show earlier tonight, and I was frantically working on this up to a half hour before I left for the concert. It is a Piranha Plant from the Mario series of Nintendo games.

Bought the pattern on Etsy and edited it a little mostly because the pattern wanted me to do way too much math. I flattened the pipe a little on the bottom and made a flat pipe rim instead of a tubular one. I also crocheted the spots instead of using felt. It is weighted down with rocks and glass beads leftover from my wedding. The neck has pipe cleaners in it. I also had to add a piece of wire hanger after sewing on the lips to keep it upright. The whole project was done with a 4.5mm hook and Vanna's Choice yarn.

Completed project:

Let me know what you think!

I must have one.

I must also resist the urge to throw a fireball at it and then go down the pipe to collect coins...
