Eevee Plush

 

I finally decided to tackle Eevee.  The pictures I'm afraid don't do the doll justice at all.   She's really much cuter than the pictures show.  LOL 

Eevee can be a tough one mostly because she's all shades of brown.  The 'collar' is worked a little different,  but it's basic and simple, and allows you alot of room to 'arrange' it however you like.

If I have one great weakness, it's doing the faces.  I'm sure that all of you wonderful crafters will be able to give her a much better face,  I'm afraid that faces just aren't my strong suit.  LOL 

If you have any problems with the pattern,  please let me know, I'll fix it as soon as possible.  If you just get confused,  post your question and we'll get that fixed up too.  :)

Sew the foot to the small end of the upper leg at a slight angle (see the pictures for reference).   DOUBLE CHECK the leg against the body before sewing on the foot,  as there will be a right and left leg.  Make sure the foot will be facing the correct direction when leg is sewn to the body.  After the foot is securely sewn to the leg,  the upper leg can be stuffed moderately firmly.  The 'hip' is *very* lightly stuffed during the process of sewing the leg to the body (same as with the shoulder of the front legs)

F/O.  Sew the front panel to the center of the 'collar' as shown in the pictures.

FINAL ASSEMBLY:

Sew the collar (round 1) to the bottom center of the head.  Use the rounds of the head to help keep the collar centered and even.  Be sure that the 'front' panel is where you want the front of the head to be. 

Sew the head/collar to the body.  Head is sewn at a slight angle over the 'rounded' end,  with most of the head placed to the top of the body.  (see pictures to get a better idea).  Sew front legs to body with the 'shoulder' on the outside of the body.  Lightly stuff the shoulder as you sew around it to give it more shape.  

Sew the back legs to the body as shown,  again,  stuffing the hips very lightly as you sew around them to give them more shape.  Stuffing the hips and shoulders is optional,  if you prefer not to that's fine as well.

Sew tail to body as shown.  Sew ears to head as shown.

Nose is a few whipstitches at center of face.  Eyes are cut from scraps of felt.  Large ovals of brown,  smaller ovals of black and two very small circles of white.  Sew or glue to face as shown.

Mouth is embroidered as shown.

Oh wow you're amazing! So many dolls I see now are blobs said to be something or another. I was wondering if you would try making an Espeon? I cant find a pattern myself and am still learning.
I'm definately going to try a few of these patterns, they look like so much fun!

All of your Pokemon dolls are wonderful! Eevee is especially my fave & will be the first I do. I think the faces are great and really make them look true to the characters.

This is adorable. I'm going to make one for my best friend for Christmas. Thanks for posting this. And if it's not too much trouble, could you try a Charmander?

choy wan said...

how do u make miniature versions? my son loves all the pokemon characters. if i make them all at plushie size, his room has no space for them. also, his birthday is coming, he wants his friends to hv them as door gifts, it'll be more achievable if they are smaller. can u help? thks.

WolfDreamer said...

You can use a smaller size of yarn, (such as a sport yarn) and a smaller hook (perhaps a C or D hook) to make them smaller using these patterns.

You can also use crochet thread (size 10) and a #7 steel hook and make a true 'mini' of them. Cotton thread will give them all different 'texture' but the general results should be nearly the same.

Lisa said...

My friend asked me to crochet her something for christmas (she saw one of my mushrooms, great for beginning with btw), and she LOVES evee... maybe i should get started õ.õ this will be tricky.

I found a typo! On the feet, you give instructions for Rnd 3-6, and then Rnd 8. You skip rnd 7.

LuzZelenia said...

hi, I'm LuzZelenia and I was wondering if you could you please do a pattern for Entei? my sister just got married and I was finding a bunch of patterns online for things that they would need around the house that I could make and ship to them (hes in the army so they had to move away to base) and because most of the stuff I made are for my sister, I wanted to be sure to make a few things for my new brother in law too so i thought that I could crochet him a pokemon plushie because I know he loves pokemon but his favorite is Entei and you don't have that pattern yet. I would really really appreciate it. thank you for reading.

also, todays my birthday, I don't celebrate birthdays but if that helps then hey xD (not lying at all either...well technically tomorrows my birthday, but its 10 at night so its pretty close)

Anonymous said...

ok so i followed the directions right and everything was fine until i did the front panel for the collar. made sure i followed the directions right but it looks way to short, i'm wondering if you accidentally wrote the pattern shorter than it was supposed to be?

WolfDreamer said...

It's more likely the difference in your yarn choice and tension. One thing about crochet, is that the exact size will vary from person to person.... you need to add rows or rounds to some pieces if your tension and yarn choice results in them being too small - or shorten by rounds or rows if the piece ends up being too large.

It's nearly impossible for me to give exact corrections because I have no way of measuring the difference :D

So cute! This is my favorite so far. May I request a Glaceon?

Anonymous said...

This is sooooo cute!!! :) but I have a quick question! Could you possibly do Flareon?? I have a friend of mine who would absolutely love it forever!

Anonymous said...

This is adorable! x]
It'd be great if you can do a pattern for snivy and/or leafeon on here too. :]

Anonymous said...

Any chance you'd be selling this eevee? It's my best friends favorite Pokemon, and I think it'd be a great birthday present.

Thanks for put in here this cute figure, and also the materials but I figure out that make it should be really complicated, I want to make it for my daughter.

I was wondering if you could possibly come up with patterns for Latios or Raquaza? There are my Nephew's favorites. I can crochet anything but I can't make up patterns to save my life. Please HELP?

please email me at jessicaarntzen@yahoo.com.

Kitty Kitty said...
