I couldn’t resist the urge to make this Charmander match the previous Vulpix and Pikachu that I’ve done so they’re a great matching set. This version is a little taller in both the body and head to fit his proportions. It also has a small rounded snout, clawed feet, and a curved tail with the classic flame at the end. Perhaps in the future I can work on a Squirtle so we have the classic starters!
This project has a lot of weird darts in the face in order to attain that particular shape. So you might find that part challenging. Also a lot of the smaller body parts are sewn on by hand. There are also crucial points to line up in the legs to get the seam right. 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 5/10.
As always, the pattern comes with applique templates to make details — including the face, foot pads, and tail flame. These will work if you’re sewing the details by regular machine or by hand. If you have an embroidery machine, you’ll find the embroidery files available for download with the buttons below. Charmander’s wide smile sadly isn’t 4×4 hoop friendly, so I had to split it into 3 parts. You’ll find the alternative templates and sewing instructions included with the main pattern 😊
I hope you all like it!
