I am extremely attached to this little darling, and I'm very happy to say that he went to a wonderful new home! ♥
The fire starter from the Generation I Pokémon, jumbo version.
Made with cotton yarn, plastic buttons, acrylic paint, felt, thread and polyester stuffing.
Approximately 25" x 16" x 18" (63.5 x 41 x 46 cm).
This plushie is made entirely by hand by one person! The pattern was developed from scratch, and the plushie was made from basic materials from scratch as well. This is a unique toy that cannot be found elsewhere at this large of a scale and is NOT a product of mass production. Please keep this in mind when viewing!
I have been trying to figure out how to make legs like that for a while! I just can't figure it out! I'm usually pretty good at drafting my own patterns but that shape stumps me!!!! lol Either way, he looks awesome, and only one strand of yarn? I would have totally doubled up, I get impatient! xp I hope you do more jumbo Pokemon in the future!~
Thank you so much! I had a Jumbo Bulbasaur in the works that I never finished. My original plan was to do a regular and jumbo version of each of the starter Pokemon over the various generations. One day I'll actually finish that!
As for the stumps, it's actually made of two separate parts that I sewed together: the thigh portion and the feet. Both have roughly around the same shape, and I just manipulated it as I attached it to the body to get it to look just right. Maybe that will help a little!
