Another post with more tips about how to write your own plush patterns. This time focusing on shape making! I'm working on a bunch of patterns simultaneously right now so I don't know when the next one will be up but hopefully soon! In the meantime, why not try your hand at making your own pattern? If people find these type of posts useful I might make it a more regular thing. If anyone has any suggestions for the next post on pattern making let me know too!

Image SourceHere's the pattern for Panpour I made by altering my Pansage pattern. Word of warning I did not make the finished plush, it would take too long and I want to get started on some other patterns. I wasn't planning on making Panpour but since someone asked I did the alterations since the pattern is basically the same as Pansage ^_^ I'll be doing Pansear sometime soon as well. When making this plush use the pictures of Panpour and the Pansage plush I made as reference. If you find any errors let me know! Enjoy!
It's finally done! (More pictures after the break) This pattern took a seriously long time to design but I think it turned out pretty well. It was certainly more complicated than Joltik >_< Pansage wasn't one of those Pokemon that I loved instantly when I played the game but after watching the Anime I fell in love with it's cuteness! And I just adore Cilan, his personality is so bright and energetic! XD Hope you all enjoy the pattern and as always let me know if you have any find any mistakes! Oh and I'm working on the alterations for the other monkeys, Panpour and Pansage since a few people have asked for those (Panpour is first since I was asked for that one first). They have different tails, head pieces, muzzle shapes, ear insets, and body markings so I have to work out all those different things! Wish me luck and if you have any problems with the pattern let me know! (And if you want to get started on Panpour or Pansear you can start making the legs, head, ears, and tail using this pattern. All those should be made in the main color of the pokemon, blue or red, except Panpour has yellow legs, refer to pictures before you start! The other pieces will have color changes so you'll have to wait till I figure out how to do them)

This post contains tips and patterns for making various eye shapes (basic round, oval, half-moon, cat's eye, embroidered) in crochet and I've included examples of each. I absolutely cannot cut up felt to save my life, whenever I try the pieces never end up the same size or look the way I want. So over the years I've come up with my own way to crochet them instead, I hope this will be helpful to those of you who struggle with felt as well.

I thought I would make a post with some tips on making your own Amigurumi/plush. I'm just starting out doing this myself so I know how hard and intimidating it can be to start. For me making my own pattern seemed kind of daunting if not impossible but I'm gaining more confidence as I go along, I'm sure you can do it too! Don't underestimate yourself! ^_^
If you're looking for Pokemon patterns here are some of the places I go to get them. I'll try to update this often and I know it's not a complete list, if you know of any I've missed I'd love to hear about them!

More pictures after the break!
This is the very first pattern I've ever written myself so if you find any mistakes or have any trouble let me know! I love pretty much every Pokemon and I've been able to find patterns for most of the one's I've wanted to make over the years. Joltik is too cute but I couldn't find a pattern for it so I thought I'd give it a shot myself. Enjoy!

Hi everyone, I'm creating this blog to share any crochet patterns I make. I've loved making all the patterns everyone else has created and I thought it would be nice to give back. They'll likely be all Pokemon patterns and I hope you'll like them. I've never made patterns before so let me know if you have any trouble! I'd love to make new friends and I'd love to trade in HeartGold, SoulSilver, Black, and White versions. I've been crocheting for the better part of 10 years and I've loved pokemon for even longer, so the two are a natural combination! Hope you enjoy the patterns and thank you for visiting!
