…so of course I couldn’t resist making an amigurumi of one! It was a super easygoing project that didn’t require much thinking. Getting the cup part to be the right shape was a little tedious, but it turned out well. What I liked most about this was the straw. Boba straws are so fat, so it was possible to make a life-size straw (unlike the neck of the martini glass Brian Griffin holds)!
You can find the pattern for it at my etsy.
My sister is a major boba fanatic – much more so than I am. When I finished making it she was ecstatic! Yet, as it sat around for a few more days, staring at her every time she walked by, tricking her more than thrice that it was the real thing, and constantly reminding her of her boba craving…she went crazy!! Now she resorts to holding it like she would a real boba cup and slurp invisible boba out of the straw. Maybe she’s hinting that I go buy her the real thing…I guess she deserves one, especially because she helped me cut out the felt pieces and arrange them. Noo…guilt tripping myself! Ok, off to the boba store!!
