Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

UPDATE: Check out the new and improved Mr. Stay Puft here:

"I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never, ever possibly destroy us. Mr. Stay Puft."

OK, so he's not exactly like Mr. Stay Puft. True that I left off his legs, but he makes such a great desk buddy this way! He's only about six inches tall, but if I were to make him again I'd go much bigger. He needs to be the size of my baby bender to really get the right feel. Then he needs to storm through a lego city, you know, for old times sake.

So yes, his hat is a little too big and his head needs to be made separately to give that chiseled marshmallow chin, but overall for a small two day project he's not bad. (I ran out of yarn for the order I'm working on so I threw this guy together instead.)

In other news I finally have a new car! My other was totaled a few weeks back so I've been stuck relying on my husband to take me everywhere. Not that I mind being chauffeured around, but he complains when I want to go shopping for my craft supplies. After today I'll be fully stocked and ready to put some serious work into the orders I've received. I really think things are falling back into place.


  1. This is awesome! I think I may have to commission one from you to give to Alex closer to his birthday.

  2. Sara, OK! Thanks for all the positive feedback everyone!

  3. This is super awesome!! I was thinking of crocheting one of these myself and thought I was the only one who came up with the idea LOL... do you happen to have a pattern for this guy or did you make it up as you went along?

  4. You make me proud. Bill Bryan (AKA The Staypuft Marshmallow Man)

  5. To Bill Bryan:

    Thank you so much. I am honored that you even saw him!
