Crocheted Baby Groot Video Tutorial & Giveaway!

g1Groot news! I just uploaded a new video tutorial to YouTube to accompany my free crocheted baby Groot pattern! (I apologize in advance for the slightly weird photos in this post. They are video screengrabs shot in Photobooth… only the finest quality for you, only the finest.)

Also since so many people have been asking if I will sell a finished Groot to them (I have no plans to sell finished Groots), I decided to have a giveaway here on the blog. You have a week to enter via the Rafflecopter widget below (ends next Friday, October 10th at midnight), and I will draw 5 winners, open internationally!

g2I am running low on the discontinued yarn I used for my original Groot, but I promise to use an equally nubbly and tweedy yarn, which just may end up being a sliiiightly different hue/texture. I will be giving away the baby Groot only and NOT the terracotta pot or any pebbles or moss. You’ll just be getting a little naked baby tree. You have to supply a pot yourself, since I don’t want to ship pots and risk breakage or pay extra shipping for a heavy package. But terracotta pots are easy to find and are cheap, so I think you guys can handle it! I do not recommend giving my baby Groots to small children because of small parts and potential wiring. 


g4You will be able to decide on some customizations for your baby Groot, like the length (long or short, or as I labeled in the photos, “Big Baby” and “Little Baby”) and whether you want the body, arms, or both to be wired. My favorite version for snuggles is no wiring at all, but for posing, my favorite is a wire in the body and pipe cleaners in the arms, but you can tell me what you prefer. Please allow me 3-4 weeks to finish custom-making your new babies before shipping them.

Good luck!

    How many Groots does it take to change a lightbulb? I do not know. How many?

  • Oh he is soooo adorable. I loved this movie and I know I hope they decide to make an actual Groot toy that dances (Do you remember those dancing flowers in the pot from the 80’s? – one like that but as a groot would be perfect!)

    Awesome giveaway – hopefully I’ll get to meet you at the Renegrade Craft fair this year if I can convince one of my friends to drive up to the city with me. =)

      Those dancing flowers have been like $400 on ebay because people are buying them to make Groots! 😛
