The Buko is Not Quite a Buko

So my first ever conceived softie is a buko.  Or a young/tender green coconut you cut open, stick a straw through the hole and drink.  So far I have my paper mock up, pattern pieces and fabric that looks way too light for buko.  I’m contemplating looking for a darker green or just going with the lighter one. Bleh.
Now the question is, if I get new fabric should it be solid or a patterned green?  And I still haven’t figured out how to do the straw.


  1. need more greeness!!! xD

  2. But patterned or solid Dx or bad tasting leeched of color buko?

  3. Hm... might go for very light, vertical lines on darker green?

    ...why are you making a plushie Buko anyway? Can I have one? >:

  4. Because I got the idea in my head and it doesn't want to get out :< I'll make you one :D I just need to test the pattern and see if it actually looks like a buko lol.

    Hmm, I do want to embroider some lines if it doesn't look too weird, or brown streaks they sometimes have. Also the lines/fibers on the white part when you cut the top open.
