This awesome Pokemon has been on my poll list for this year, and I purposely put it off until October — a Bulbasaur! Making this little guy really took me back to a few years ago when I used to make Bulbasaur hoodies to order. Sadly I don’t anymore since my schedule is just chock full of pattern making, but it was a fantastic stroll down memory lane.
The body of this one has pretty simple shapes, and is actually constructed similarly to the cow, elephant, and giraffe from this year. So if you’re familiar with those you’ll have an easier time. You have your option to add a cute chubby bulb on top of the body, or a spooky pumpkin for Halloween! I’m so thrilled with the outcome and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the spoopiest of months.
With all that in mind, I rated it a 4/10. The inner legs and belly are tricky to sew, but if your take your time lining up the pieces you’ll be okay. Attaching all the major parts also requires a good bit of hand sewing, so give yourself time for that. As always, the pattern comes with applique templates to make the face and spots if you’re using a regular sewing machine or working by hand. There are also embroidery files available if you have an embroidery machine. They’re 4″ x 4″ hoop sized, you’ll just need to rotate the face to make it fit.
I really hope you all like this little Bulba 💚 He might be my favorite Pokemon and I would love to revisit this pattern for new objects to put on his back. Roses for Valentine’s Day, bao buns, cream puffs, cacti?! What would you put? Let me know in the comments 🤩
