|Makeup inspired by Pikachu for Pikachu cosplay|
|I made this blanket for my glory box, but also as a test to see if I'd want to make more like it, Pokemon inspired or just as a request.|
I enjoyed the process of making this. I used only a few patterns to make this and made up the rest as I went a long.
BLANKET: 72cm (28") wide.
The blanket itself was a pattern, and I added a border to it. Pikachu's stripes were taken from a leaf pattern and revised to be longer and rounder. The tail however was completely my own pattern of four separate pieces that got wider as the tail progressed, all sewn together. I used yellow and brown wool.
BEANIE: 40cm (16") circumference.
For the beanie I used a standard beanie pattern, and added on ear flaps and a brown border to line it. The tassels are loose lengths of wool plaited together and can be tied together to hold the beanie on. The eyes were a small circle pattern with white wool sewn on the make his pupil. The same circle pattern was then used to make his red cheeks but in a smaller circle. Pikachu's nose and mouth were sewn on using black wool and a wool needle. The ears were the worst part to make as I wasn't sure how to make a cone shape in crochet so I sorta made it up myself using a cylinder shape that got smaller as it progressed. The ears are longer than I intended but can be revised. I used yellow, brown, black, red and white wool.
All in all for approximately four days work (I took a few breaks to look at patterns and other people's similar works) total I am very happy with the result, even if a few parts do need revision in my opinion.
