Piranha Plant

June 18, 2011

Summer!!!! On the calendar it says that summer starts on the 21st, but you can sure feel it now. And so, on this hot summer day, I stayed inside and decided to crochet something. But what? I looked outside and saw the nice potted plants that were outside, basking in the sun. And so I decided to make a plant. And what type of plant is better than the amazing……….Piranha Plant!!!!!

Please don’t sell the pattern or the product! Give it away as a gift if you like.

*To help the plant stay up right, add something heavy on the bottom and have the "something sturdy" that goes in the Stem to run through the Pipe, the Stem, and the Mouth*
