Pokemon First Gen Starter Blanket

Yup, you read the title correctly. It’s finished at last!! (and listed on etsy)

Drum roll please……

Yup, behold the glory that is the Pokemon blanket. It’s pictured on a queen sized bed for size references.

And the beautiful back. Yup, fully reversible, which is why I crochet most of my blankets these days.

I have a few new projects in the works, hopefully I’ll have a bit more time in the upcoming weeks to post a bit more. I’m always looking for new ideas, so fill the comments section with suggestions!

Pokemon Blanket, Almost Finished!

Good news everyone!

Finals are over, which means two weeks of sleeping, crafting, and eating turkey.

“mmm turkey” she drools.

Oh where were we, oh yea, so in addition to having free time, I also have managed to almost complete my Pokemon blanket!

Now all I have to do is put the squares together. Yay!

And yes, it will be available on etsy in the coming weeks.

Charmander Coaster/Hotpad

 

 

 

School is keeping me super busy, but I’m trying to keep sane and find some time to do a few mini project here and there.

 

Here is my completed Charmander coaster/potholder. 20120917-143741.jpg

 

After sewing on all the pieces he looked like he was missing something, so I added some teeth at the last-minute.

I finished him off with a little tail on the back.

I have some sketches for a few other Pokemon, so they may be showing up here in the future.

Now back to the books!

Current Work in Progress

School may be taking a good chunk of my time, but I’m trying to find a little time to craft each week. I’m still working on my Pokemon blanket, but I was feeling inspired to design today, so I started working on a Charmander coaster/hot pad thing.

He still needs to be sewn together, and I want to add a tail to the back. But he’s looking super cute and I’m toying around with the thought of making a set of them to sell on etsy.

Pokemon Blanket Part 5

 

My latest block for the Pokemon blanket is possibly one of my favorites.

Bulbasaur has always been one of my favorite Pokemon, and I’m pretty happy with how his square turned out. The spots on the legs look a little too much like plus signs for me now that he’s finished, but other than that he turned out really well.

I’m going to create solid colored squares to fill in the rest of the blanket now so that the blanket isn’t too busy. Then all that’s left is to put the blocks together. Hooray!

Pokemon Blanket Part 4

I’ve been a crocheting machine! So here, for your viewing pleasure, is my latest creation for the Pokemon blanket. Squirtle!

Unlike my other patterns, I didn’t chibify (yes it’s a word now) the Pokemon myself. Instead, I drew inspiration from this little guy I found on Deviant art.

Isn’t he cute?! If you like chibi art as much as I do, be sure to check out MizziChibiArt!

So now, without further adieu, is my latest blanket square:

I think he turned out pretty cute. I left out some of the shell detail to try to keep him from being too cluttered, but now that I’m able to stand back and look at it, it probably could have been left in. Other than that, I’m super excited with the way he turned out.

Just one more Pokemon square to go!

Pokemon Blanket Part 3

 

As promised, I have been working hard on my Pokemon blanket and here for your viewing pleasure, is my latest square.

 

Here he is, chibi charmander.

Not too sure how I feel about this one to be honest. I wanted him to look cute, but my sister said he reminds here of a mushroom. I’m not sure if I see the mushroom, but I’m not happy with the tail. One of the instances of it looked better on paper than in practice. *shrug*
