Remember Unhappy Lil’ Slug? He slimed up to me recently and pointed out a design contest going on at Amigurumi Patterns.net. You have to design an ami in a work outfit essentially.
“You’re too small,” I said, looking into his soulful eyes and feeling bad. “And unemployed.”
Which is when he introduced me to his big brother. Unhappy Big Slug.
Unhappy Big Slug is made out of Wendy Pampas Mega Chunky Yarn, to the exact same pattern as Unhappy Lil’ Slug. He’s huge. Giant.
And also unemployed currently. But he’s open to trying out some options.
The butler uniform didn’t fit…
He couldn’t open the door so concierge is out…
Oven gloves baffled him too much to take up baking…
And something just felt wrong about being a chef…
In desperation we took to Facebook. So far the suggestions include:
Yellow Line road marker
Nickelodian Slime Producer
Job in IT
Joke shop owner
Fast food worker
Custom carer at the German statutory pension insurance scheme
Lollypop Slug for school children crossing the road
Lots of things for him to try out in the weeks before the competition closes. Well, maybe not salt tester…
Any more suggestions gratefully received!
