Crochet Charizard <3 Birthsday present!

Phew this guy took some patience! Especially the wings (Using wire is a killer)! But - he got finished!

The eyes are made with felt, and turned out well I think!:)

Its a while since I made something from anothers pattern, so it was a challenge! I did some adjustments to my own tastes, but check out Mia’s gorgeous pattern for yourself: http://www.miahandcrafter.com/atelier/charizard-pattern/

Knitting Inspiration - Part 3 of “No, it’s not geeky at all to be so into these hooded things. Shut up capes are cool.”

Okay, fine, I and all the designers who come up with these things are huge nerds. Are you happy now? I admitted it. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to make a unikitty hood immediately.

I wanted to work on some more Pokemon, and I’ve seen some great Eeveelutions so I decided to try my hand at my own. My first Pokemon game was Pokemon Silver on the Game Boy colour, and I accidentally evolved my Eevee into an Espeon, unaware that she (I always end up with female Eevee’s) could even evolve without some kind of stone haha, but since Espeon was very pretty I didn’t mind.

You can pick up Espeon for yourself here. Alright, onward!

Made this wizard’s hat, based on Terry Pratchett’s book character, the wizard Rincewind. For those of you who don’t know Rincewind: the bad spelling of the word wizard is intentional! Rincewind can’t spell properly ;)

This is the pattern I used for the hat:

Then I just glued on the letters and stars in yellow felt.

I’m making Pokéballs again! Yay!

The downside to crocheting things of my own creation (no actual pattern) is that I easily forget the little parts that I had improved on and have to almost start from scratch!

It’s fun though, and I’m writing things down this time so I won’t forget. Also making small improvements. I think the button looks better now, and the ball is much tighter and holds form. I just need to go up a size and I think it’ll be even better! (You can’t see the size but it’s a bit too small)

What do you guys think? 😄
