Jumbo Charmander by SBuzzard Jumbo Charmander by SBuzzard
Status: $120 (Available on request).

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!

Regular version:

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! :meow: 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!

hmmm, I think I see what you mean. I'll have to continue finding a way to do it after my current project is finished xp

And I love Bulbasaur! He's my favorite Pokemon, you should totally finish him!~

I am so impressed by your giant amigurumi! And you use regular worsted weight yarn with only one strand! Wow, I would not have the patience to take on such an extended project. I am so impressed.

Are all of your Amigurumis double/triple (whatever the number may be) stranded? (like, do you use more than one strand of yarn per stitch? I'm not very good at explain, haha).

SBuzzard Featured By Owner May 18, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
I think I kind of understand what you're trying to say? Maybe, lol. :p Do you mean what kind of stitch I use? I do all of my amigurumi with a double crochet stitch, so I have two "strands" on my hook before pulling a loop through both (leaving one) and moving on to the next stitch.

Astrotonik Featured By Owner May 18, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh no, sorry.  Haha, I've heard how some people when crocheting larger projects, they pull yarn from two or more balls instead of the usual single ball to give the plushie structure. Is this why your stitches look so large? Outside of huge sizes/guage and whatnot.

:iconsbuzzard:
SBuzzard Featured By Owner May 18, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Huh, I've never heard of people doing that before, but it makes a lot of sense when I think about it. No, I actually do everything with just a single ball at a time, and I use a standard 5 mm hook so the gauge isn't too much larger than an average project. The stitches might look bigger on the Jumbo Charmander because I used a worsted yarn instead of the usual thinner yarn for my ponies.

I know, I really wish I had an alternative shipping method that was cheaper, but this was the cheapest I could find. :( It's mostly due to the box size and weight.

Oh my goodness! I LOVE this CUTE little Charmander! Omg if I had money....  I say naturally he'd be worth about $25-35 because of the size and the fact that he seems really well made- good quality. Alas I don't even have money ;A; but he's so cute! xD. If I had money I would definitely buy him though~
Reply
:iconsbuzzard:
SBuzzard Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you! :meow: But, um...that's how much the materials alone cost to make this, so saying this is only worth $25-35 is awfully cheap. It's not factoring in the large amount of time I put in to making this. If this was mass produced, that would be a "fair" price, but then you also have to remember the people making it are extremely underpaid. I usually underpay myself in the first place, so that's why my small ones are much more affordable, but with this one, I want to actually pay myself the amount I deserve for my labor. Plus there's always bills and rent to pay. :p

True true, it's not like you're a machine to mass produce little charmanders xD. We'll it all depends on how much you feel its worth. I'm not one to price things since I have no concept of pricing.

Dear lord Sarah. Ok, review time. As per usual, your whole weaving (crochet? I can't spell it) is done wonderfully, and to me looks MORE satisfying than a wholly material plush, as it gives a much livlier texture, and could maybe even feel like rough scales to some. I do like however that the underbelly is done in one single piece of smooth fabric, since it makes it feel less like something that's been built and more like something that just 'is'. The tail fire is delightfully cartoony, and because of this it stands out delightfully against the rest. I could easily see you doing larger fires on other Pokemon. As for overally shape, your method REALLY lends itself to charmander, as the guys nothing but round shapes. Nice to see your work again

Thanks again for the kind words. :meow: I've found that I enjoy making Pokemon plushies most because their original shapes and designs translate really well to plush. I'm planning out a Bulbasaur next.
