Free Pattern Friday! Pikachu Plush

Hi everyone!
Requests for a Pikachu plush have been on my list for a while now, and they really ramped up over the last year or two. He’s such an important character I wanted to make sure to nail it perfectly. So you could say the Hoodie Hack I released back in September was kind of a warm up. But the plush version is finally ready!

This one has a tiny chubby body with stubby legs. The feet and arms are sewn on by hand as well as the ears. It sits well on its own thanks to a flat bottom. Just like the hoodie hack, this one comes with bonus templates for a female version of the tail (with a heart shape at the end) and a shocked face from the meme, haha!

As always, the pattern comes with applique templates to make details — including both faces, the back stripes, and base of the tail. These will work if you’re sewing the details by regular machine or by hand. If you have an embroidery machine, those files are included as well. They fit 4″ x 4″ hoops if you place the fabric diagonally, and 5″ x 7″ hoops if the faces are upright.
This project has a lot of darts in the head as well as a weird curved dart in the body. Many of the smaller body parts are also sewn on by hand. So there’s a bit of a time sink there. There are also some crucial points to line up in the legs to get the right shape. So if you take your time with those parts and pin carefully before you sew you’ll get through better. With all of that in mind, I rated it a 4/10.

I hope it lives up to the character for you guys!
