    making a mouth

    Good Morning

    I need to make a mouth for my Larry The Cucumber amigurumi. The original designer suggests gluing on a felt mouth but I am giving this to my 14 month old granddaughter who will certainly bite it off.
    How would I crochet something that looks like a U shape, straight on top and rounded at the bottom. It would need to be single crochet.
    I have attached the designer's photo so you can see what it is to look like. I will embroider the teeth in white.
    Your thoughts?

    After crocheting the letter u you could attach it to Larry the cucumber and then stitch it w/thread and needle how you want it to look.

    thank you Jean Marie but this is more of a puppet style mouth that opens and closes. I need a U shape flat. I did figure it out and Larry is complete
    thank you for your help in searching .....

    Hi Teri! What a great gift that will be....love Veggie Tales. I didn't know there were crochet patterns for them. I would love to see a picture of your finished Larry. I bet he will be the star of the show.

    He's perfect! You did an awesome job figuring out his mouth. Thanks also for sharing your pattern source. I will have to take a look at that. Right now we are remodeling a house with a move at the end of this month, so time is at a premium.
