#107 Hitmonchan

Hi Guys!

Only 2 more to share after this one! It’s a real countdown.

So this week i have a Hitmonchan for you. It took me a while to find the right color for his purple ‘dress’. He’s not quite able to stand up on his own because i made his legs stand up in a strange angle. I again used the same technique to make hypno’s fingers to make hitmonchan’s head.

Let me know what you think about my color choises 😉

#125 Electrabuzz

Hi there!

I’m sorry for not posting a pokémon last week, but we had visitors over and after that I simply forgot.

This week I have a Electric pokémon for you! It’s been a while since I posted on of those, and now i come to think about it, there aren’t really many electric type pokémon in the first generation.

I made the big mistake of drawing on a nose directly on the fabric. the placement wasn’t right and I had a hard time removing it again. I hope it isn’t that visible anymore!

I’m still progressing slow but steady with creating new pokémon and my plan is to finish by this summer! Ambitious plans I would say 🙂

Stay tuned for next weeks pokémon!

#108 Lickitung

Hi there!

I hope you had a nice week! Let’s start this week with the first of my new ‘batch’ of pokémon. I divided the remaining pokémon in different batches so I don’t have all the difficult ones left in the end (i know myself).

At first I had no idea how to start with lickitung! I was a bit struggling with the open mouth, but in the end I think I did a good job. What do you think about him? IMG_1131

#084 Doduo

A very happy new year to all of you!

I hope you had a great start of the year, and i wish you all the happiness you would wish for in 2016.

One of my New years resolutions is to finish this project and finish crocheting all 151 first generation pokémon!

I’ll start the year of by posting this super cute and cuddly Doduo. He’s quit a bit larger then my usual pokémon because the yarn i found was just the perfect texture, but i had to use a hook size 7mm instead of the 4mm hooks i usually use.

Have you made any new years resolutions? Let me know what you think about doduo!

I’m so proud of my Seadra! I think she’s so cool and fierce!

#115 Kangaskhan

Hi there!

Are you looking forward to christmas? I know i do! Then i will finally have some more time to make some new pokémon. In the meantime i still have this kangaskhan for you! You can see she’s pretty fierce and will protect her little cub against everything that crosses her path.

IMG_9851

Do you know the pokémon theory about Kangaskhan and Cubone?

The idea is that originally the baby Kangaskhan was supposed to evolve into Cubone. Cubone’s pokedex entry states that it wears the skull of its deceased mother. The story goes that if a Kangaskhan mother dies, the baby will wear her skull and use her bones as its weapon, thus evolving into Cubone. The Cubone would then evolve into Marowak and (female) Marowak would evolve into Kangaskhan, continuing the cycle. There’s also the fact that both boomerangs (how Cubone and Marowak use their bone weapons) and kangaroos (what Kangaskhan is based on) both have an Australian theme. The theory goes on to state that the reason Kangaskhan became a completely unrelated pokemon in the end was because the creators thought the idea of having the baby wear its dead mother’s skull was too morbid for a kids game (even though Cubone’s pokedex entries still talk about that). So they had to rewrite the game code and delete the old code for Marowak evolving into Kangaskhan…but the code wasn’t fully deleted and instead became the glitch pokemon ‘M, which actually can evolve into Kangaskhan. (from http://animeyume.com/blog/2013/04/12/top-10-pokemon-conspiracy-theories/)

I have also started with the charity project i talked last time about. I’m selling crocheted bumblebees for a good cause called ‘Natuurpunt (the largest Belgian nature conservation organization). I’m only selling them to family and friends but i will post a free pattern to make this little cuties yourself next time!
