Melvin the Misunderstood Monster (Free Pattern) by ex-astris1701 Melvin the Misunderstood Monster (Free Pattern) by ex-astris1701
Free Amigurumi Pattern - "Melvin the Misunderstood Monster"

The free pattern is available at ea1701.wordpress.com

He’s a nice guy. Nicer than nice. He bakes cupcakes for everyone he knows, helps little old ladies cross the street, always says ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ and is never one to make a fuss. He never says no to someone in need, and always has a smile and a cheerful thought from the bottom of his big ‘ol heart. Why, he’d even balance your checkbook if you asked! (He’s really quite good with numbers.)

But even given all this, everyone still calls Melvin a monster. And for the life of him, he can’t figure out why. He’s cute, he’s little, he’s sweet. So where do they get monster in that?

Perhaps Melvin will never know. But in the meantime he keeps his positive disposition, taking comfort in fresh coloring books, caramel apples and watching the Olympics.


Want to make your own misunderstood monster? The free pattern is available at right here my blog (ea1701.wordpress.com)

Poor Melvin is being followed by the reputation of Yami Marik :iconyamimarikplz: from Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged! But that's okay, because I'll love him no matter what!

When I was a kid I didn't have video games or electronics or lots of friends or anything so I would often play with my plushies by myself, making up entire worlds and stories for each one. I ended up bringing that same kind of thing into adulthood :D

I know exactly what you mean; only I did relatively
the same thing in role playing with my sister. :)
It's amazing what it does for the imagination in the future!
Very touching my friend^^
