We’ve got yet another Pokemon that has made its way to the top of my pattern poll. This time it’s Lapras! This gentle water and ice Pokemon looks a bit like a plesiosaur. It has kind of an elusive and mysterious air to it, so I can see how it became so popular! This particular version has a big chubby body, puffy flippers, curly ears, and a cute shell with lots of tiny spikes.
The main thing that makes this pattern difficult is all the hand sewing. Since Lapras has so many little pieces it takes quite a while. And of course there’s the big piece — the shell. You’ll want to take your time placing it so it doesn’t misalign (being so big). So just be sure to give yourself plenty of time for all the hand sewing so it doesn’t get frustrating. With all that in mind, I rated it a 5/10 in difficulty.
As always, the pattern comes with applique templates to make the face details. 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 here or with the buttons below. It includes the eyes as well as the body spots.
I hope you all like it, and thank you to everyone that voted for it! It’s been a very good year for Pokemon and I couldn’t be happier!

I’ve been sewing your patterns since I started about a month ago and I just put together Lapras over the past week. I’m so proud of it, and now I have friends wanting me to make them plushies. As a 29 y/o dude, making the pokemon plushies I couldn’t afford as a kid is so awesome. Thanks so much!
That’s fantastic! I’m so glad you enjoyed the pattern and are proud of the result!
