Here’s a little story about Glowey Monster, a critter i made for “amigurumi monster design contest” by amigurumi patterns.
* * * * *
Glowey lives in a far far away place called Monster City, the city that full of bad monsters. All human are really scared and try not to have problems with them. But actually the problems always come from the monsters itself. They always make a trouble to human, come to Human City and make a messed. Human always being accused by the monsters for all the troubles. Poor human…
But there’s one monster that looks different than other monters. He doesn’t have a heart to hurt human’s feeling. He’d rather make them happy and please them. His name is Glowey Monster. He’s glowing when happy. But when he’s feeling sad, the glow is dissapeared.
Glowey loves his glow, because he can make human happy. But in the other way, all monsters are not happy at all with that glowy-thing. Usually in the middle of monster’s meeting, or while all monsters busy, Glowey always runs away to Human City. The more he often to show off his glowing body to human, the more he feels happier because human feel the same way too.
Until one day he’s never showed up again in Human City. All human are wondering about his absence, is something going wrong with him, is he ok, does he still love human, etc. The truth was one night at the border line, one of the monster secretly spied on Glowey while he headed to Human City. And that monster right away reported Glowey to Monster Chief and said that Glowey loves human. That against one of the Monster City’s laws.
When Glowey came back to Monster City, Police Monster already waited in the border line and caught him. He’s arrested until who knows when. Poor Glowey…

I know this is not a happy ending story. But in actual life, sometimes we’re not always get what we want, right? At that point we have to be patient and find another better clue.
I didn’t win the contest, but i was proud of my self beacuse i’ve got 365 votes from the audience! And i thank to my kids and my husband who gave all ideas about monster sketches to me (I asked them one by one to made some monster skteches and we selected them together).
Here is Glowey in lime green..
One of my friend ordered Glowey in shocking pink as a birthday present for her daughter. He’s really cute in shocking pink, isn’t he? 😀
And now i’m happily sharing the pattern on my Etsy store so you can make Glowey on your own in any colour you like.
