Frowny Marshmallows





Introduction: Frowny Marshmallows

Did you ever stop to think about how those marshmallows feel when you're roasting them over a hot, open flame? Well, it turns out they are pretty darn upset about it! First they are ripped away from their friends (in the marshmallow bag), impaled with a stick, and waved over a fire. And sometimes they are accidentally (or purposefully!!!) set on fire, only to bubble and burn. If such a fate as that doesn't await them, they are quickly eaten OR placed between graham crackers with some chocolate, but alas, still eaten. Hence, frowny marshmallow on a stick and frowny s'more.

I designed the crochet patterns to make these: both the finished products and pattern can be found in my Etsy shop: I used all acrylic yarns, black embroidery thread, black bead eyes, and brown pipe cleaners.

*Note: no marshmallows were harmed in the making of these crochet projects.

    I think your frowny marshmallow could also be named "Sad S'mores". Very cute. Or, very sad. But, very calorie-free!

    hate to be contradictory, but these probably have 700+ calories, 1 calorie is the amount of energy it takes to raise 1 liter of water 1 degree. "Sad S'Mores" Good One!

    Cubic centimeter of water, not a liter. BIIIIIG difference.

    Well, these are crochet and not edible. I think you know what designpieces meant by calorie-free...let's not get nit-picky here. :)

    Negative calories to make one!!!!!

    Very creative! I wonder... would there be some way to make the marshmallow look golden around the edges?

    Ooooh yes, maybe using a toasty brown/white mottled yarn for the top? That would be cute!

    LOL! That's toooo cute!!

    Poor Marshmellow!
