Go big or go home… It’s Snorlax

Hey hey crochet lovers. This latest update has been a long time coming but I’m super proud to bring you the one, the only… Snorlax. It took me a full month to crochet Snorlax from start to finish, and that was with a few stops in between to finish some smaller pieces.

Testing out the first addition to the Cuddle Collection

For this latest critter, I stepped things up considerably from my usual palm-sized Pokemon. I like to think of Snorlax as part of the Cuddle Collection, and his special move – hug – is certainly effective.

Let’s have a big hand for Aipom

Hey hey crochet lovers. It was only when I started crocheting Pokemon that I realised how many are purple. I’m too pernickity to use the same purple on them all, so I clearly need a rainbow of purple shades to hook them all.

This rich bright purple seemed a perfect match for Aipom – the cheeky second generation ape Pokemon – who is most notable for the giant opposable hand on his tail. This makes for a super cute toy but certainly doesn’t help him stand up unaided, even with wire in his tail.

Aipom was a great excuse for some cheeky needle-felting
