Hey hey, crochet fans. After completing Evelyn Pham’s adorable Bulbasaur Pokemon pattern I couldn’t wait to get stuck into another. Of all the options available I just couldn’t pass up on Eevee – it’s just so cute!!!
I didn’t have the right yarn to get started on the little fella and finding the right colour in cotton proved tricky – instead I ended up with a super soft Merino wool in a soft cookie dough colour. It was a dream to hook with and the finished toy is wonderfully cuddly. It works for Eevee but I wouldn’t be keen to use wool again for Pokemon amigurumi as it’s too stretchy and doesn’t keep the shaping as well.
After my experience with Bulbasaur I thought I’d be a bit more adventurous with needle-felting this time and used wool roving for Eevee’s tail, fluffy mane, inner ears and features. His eyes are maybe a little small but I couldn’t be happier with how they’ve come out – so cute! Creating anime eyes is so much easier and more effective with needle-felting, so definitely give it a go.
