Ever since we watched The Last Jedi, our family has become obsessed with porg, the rotund birds who were apparently designed for cuteness, not aerodynamics. I have one (named Pascal) attached to my car window, and my son got one that came with a blanket. My son even created camouflage armor for his using duct tape:

Yes, we have Paratrooper Porg. He also has boots, which Alex created after this picture was taken.

As for me, thanks to this pattern created by The Geeky Hooker, I've started crocheting my own Porg Collective. See below for the picture. They're pretty easy to make (especially since they only require about half the rows of some of the other Star Wars characters I crochet); the hardest part is switching between three colors. The facial expressions could use some work too. I may wind up spending all my free time creating porg. Guess I'd better schedule some writing time in there too if I want to finish my next novel before Episode Nine premiers.

Soon you'll have enough to colonize a whole island. I bet you could even sell them. If you were willing to part with any that is.

Alex, I'm planning to sell the porg and possibly other Star Wars characters to other Midwest Garrison members at troops. No plans yet to set up an Etsy shop.

The mouths look almost like a mustache.

Porgs are so cute. I love that your son made one a paratrooper.

Crystal Collier said...

Hahaha! I love it. They're super cute. I haven't been particularly impressed with the new Star Wars releases, but I think porgs are cute, regardless.

Sandra Almazan said...

Pat, the mouths do look droopy, even on the prototype crocheted porg.

Thanks, Diane and Crystal!
