Eevee with modifications

Standard
Eevee  with modifications

I had a friend request some Pokémon for his wife. They are quite the Pokémon Go players. He wanted Eevee, Polliwag, Vulpix, Jigglypuff and Ponyta. We decided Ponyta might not translate to stuffed form. Not being one to recreate the wheel, I checked the internet for patterns for these Pokémon. If you haven’t gone to Wolf Dreamer’s site, I highly recommend it. There are some great patterns there. I used this Pattern as my starting point for Eevee. I don’t use a lot of felt (I never have it at home), so I added crocheted eyes. I changed the legs to a simpler version. I also didn’t line the ears with felt, leaving them simply crocheted. Finally, I made a small modification to the tail.

My colors:

I Love This Yarn in Toasted Almond, Ivory, Brown, Black and a tiny bit of White.

The only other supplies I used are polyfiberfill and a Size E crochet hook.

Using a Size E hook my finished Eevee was about 6 inches tall and 8-10 inches long. She is super cute which doesn’t really translate in the picture.

Modifications to the pattern.

Pikachu Hats for Cats – and sometimes dogs.

Pikachu Hats for Cats – and sometimes dogs.

Pokémon Go fever has taken over, at least in our house. I got an odd request over Facebook. “Can you make a Pikachu Hat for a cat for a gift?” Not one to back down from a challenge, I happily accepted.

It looks a little silly without a cat in it, but it ended up working really well.

Here is Lucky. IMG_1771

She’s exceedingly unimpressed with this. I’m lucky she didn’t bite me.

My Chihuahua wanted to join in on the fun.

Then he kept trying to shake it off. Silly Weeble.

Would you like to make a hat for your cat or possibly a small dog? You are in luck.

I typed up the pattern. Make a hat, put it on a cat and send me a pic. Here’s a link to the pattern: pickachu-hat
