One of my lovely friends over on DeviantArt was kind enough to send me the Hunger Games series because she had an extra set. I figured that it was only fair that I make something for her in return. Instead, she asked that I make something for her son: a Pyramid Head. So I dug around in my stash and found colors as close to PH's as possible and this is what I got:




Little PH stands on his own but only if he's holding his Great Knife because of his head. There are pipe cleaners in his fingers so that he can hold his Great Knife. However, his fingers aren't quite long enough for a good grip so I'm going to go back and add a strap to the sword handle so that it won't slip from his grasp.
I made him from my own pattern and his hands were a struggle. My sister found a tutorial for crocheting fingers on amigurumitogo.com after I finished. Tongue

This little guy is LONG overdue so sometime soon he will be packed up and shipped off to his new home.

Hey, crafty sisters.

Two thoughts:

#1...sand stuffed in the base inside under the stuffy stuff {wrapped in plastic...like a zippy bag?}

#2...large metal washers in place of the sand to weight the bottoms.

You can also just stitch the washers on the outside bottom base. After the item is completed and stuffed. You can cover that with felt, if you don't like the look of it, or are worried about scratching the table surface it sits on.

Just ideas. I don't understand who Pyramid Head is, but he looks cute-ish. Very nice crochet.

I thought about putting sand but he's meant to be played with, too, and I wasn't sure how well that would hold up. My amis his size typically stand on their own without sand or such but his head makes him a bit awkward. I should have made his feet bigger.

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

Thats so awesome! I use beans to weight my plushies feet and tushies. They dont seem heavy...but compared to polyfil it always seems to be enough.

Gorgeous work!!

Beans are a great idea! I have used raw rice before, too. But with the itsy bitsy slobber puss kids, that does not work well. It won't hurt them...it just turns into concrete  Roll Eyes My dolls were fabric for this. Rice would sneak out of crochet, I am sure.

I don't know the story behind this crazy looking doll. But it is interesting all the same.

My friend had the same reaction when she saw the pics of him Grin

I don't know why I didn't think of that. Roll Eyes I used Morning Glory Premium Polyfil, which make projects a bit firmer. Usually when I use it, they have no problems free-standing. But I didn't take into account the fact that PH's head would likely make him topple since it's not really centered.

Ah but if you were to sew it into a small pouch and put the pouch in the feet you wouldn't have to worry  Wink And he's not at the "slobber puss"/"I must chew all the things" stage.

Pyramid Head is one of the monsters in the Silent Hill horror game series.
