Chespin Plushie by Milayou Chespin Plushie by Milayou
Okay, so before you accuse me of hopping on the gen 6 bandwagon, I'm not THAT excited about the announcement of the new gen of Pokemon. I just saw this guy, and liked his design, and for some reason felt inspired to make him. It was more like a "I bet I can make that" kind of thing, than an OMG new pokemon(!) thing.

I actually initially liked the fox thing better, but I thought this guy would be easier to make, and there's just something I find really charming about his design, although I couldn't tell you what. I might even end up picking him over the fox, even though foxes are like, my favorite animal ever. I just hope he doesn't evolve into something stupid.

Anyway, if you're wondering, I did write up the pattern for this guy, so here you go:

Chespin Plushie

AHMAHGAHD. Chespin is so adorable! :333
I have a huge issue with getting any type of pointy bit to stand up on its own. Any tips?

I can't think of any particular tips, but it seems that the smaller they are, the better they generally stand up on their own. And it just depends on the exact way you make it. For his points, rather than doing them in a round and smooshing it flat, I did it in two pieces and sewed them together. I think the seam from sewing it may give it a kind of thickness that helps it stand up better. But you might also try adding a light bit of stuffing for extra support.

 

I'm sure wire frame would work too, but I'm no good with them, and it would make it less cuddle-able, if you were concerned about that.

D'aw, thanks! There's just something i really liked about his design, and I felt compelled to make him, even though the fox was my favorite at first. I'm probably gonna end up picking Chespin though once the games come out.

Do you plan on making the rest?

I probably will eventually. I'm not entirely sure I can do the frog right, so if I do, he may end up looking kind of weird. I'll probably do the fox first though, since I like him more.
