Giant Squirtle Pattern

 

An update has finally come! I went through my pattern and remade it - I changed a couple things, but most work was just clarifying and correcting some errors. 







These patterns take time to design and write out. If you enjoyed using my pattern, please consider supporting me by paying what you can for the pattern by using the "buy me a coffee" button to the right.

Round 8: Sc 8, Dec 4 (12)

Round 9-close: Dec to close, FO

Stuff legs


Putting it Together: 

  1. Sew on the shell. Use the markers on the face to make sure it's perfectly at the back. Leave about 4cm at the bottom unsewn - the tail will be sewn about 1cm under the shell. 
  2. Sew on the tail - I like to put the shell over it a bit, which is why we've left that space. 
  3. Sew on the arms and legs















Making the eyes: 

I'm hoping to make a tutorial post about this sometime soon - maybe a video too. 

  1.  Cut the felt to shape. The main part of Squirtle's eyes is all black.
  2.  Cut out the long white highlight, the round white highlight, and the brown lower highlight. 
    1. I like to start a bit larger for all of these and slowly trim them down to size. 
  3. Attach them using fabric glue/a hot glue gun OR you can hand stitch them all together one layer at a time. 
  4. Attach the eyes to the face using glue or hand stitch them on. I like to pin them on first with sewing pins to get the perfect placement. 




Have fun making him!  If you have issues, feel free to ask in the comments and I'll get back to you asap (I'm trying to check in on them more often)

Giant Bulbasaur Crochet Pattern

 Well hello there.  I know I promised scheduled patterns when I published my Charmander pattern.... but it turns out I have once again underestimated my ability for procrastination.  

On the bright side I've cast on two blankets, a sweater, and started designing yet another knit top.  

On the not so bright side, I'm behind on publishing my Kanto set.  So it's time to get on that.  

Here's Bulbasaur.  Hopefully Squirtle isn't too long off (I know better than to make promises now.)


Enjoy making it!  If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments!

Now, stuff the body, and sew the head onto it.  I find it useful to use sewing pins to confirm the placement.  


Sew the ears onto the head, sew the pod and legs onto the body.  


Lastly, add your felt details!  I've provided some pictures below for felt placement as well as limb placement when sewing stuff on. To attach the felt you can either use fabric/hot glue, or you can hand sew the eyes and markings on using thread.
