Flareon + Pokeball by KittyCowLexa Flareon + Pokeball by KittyCowLexa
Okay...so I'm FINALLY getting around to submitting pictures of the Flareon and Pokeball my mom and I worked together to make for my brother for Christmas. :iconsweatdropplz: Late, late, late...

So, here it is! The Flareon plushie was made mostly by me, and the pokeball was made mostly by my mom.
We could not, for the life of us, find long, yellow fur for her head, collar, and tail. :faint: So my mom had the AWESOME idea of using an old, child-size santa hat that we had and dyeing the fur on it yellow using vinigar and yellow food coloring! :D It turned out REALLY well, I think! 8D The tips are more yellow than the rest, which is just how I wanted it to be! :la:
After my mom crocheted the two halves of the pokeball (which was pretty tricky, considering they had to be the exact same size!) I took over and added the lining, the zipper, and the velcro on the button. :nod:
It was a real team effort! :dance: And we're planning to make him more pokemon this year to fit in his pokeball, and probably in future years to come. Oh, but shh! It's a secret. :shh:



In this picture, you can see how well Flareon fits in the poke ball! :dance: All you have to do is fold her ears back and zip it up and she fits in there perfectly! :la: My brother is the one who discovered that you can fold her tail around her to make it look like she's sitting in a pet bed of sorts. :iconchuuplz:

Wow, this is AWESOME!!! :iconepiclaplz: That was a seriously awesome idea for starters! Secondly, both you and your mom did an amazing job with this! :clap: The Flareon is just ADORABLE! :iconiloveitplz: The giant pokeball is totally awesome too! I think any pokemon fan would just love one of those for storage or something like that, but having a plush pokemon to put inside of it makes it all the cooler! Once again, super fantastic job! I can imagine that your brother really loved this! :dummy:

Thank you so much! :iconlawooplz: lol! When my mom first had the idea, I was so dense that it took me forever before I could finally picture what she meant. :dummy: But when I DID, I was all over the idea! :eager:
Thank you! :la: She ended up with a lot more of a personality than I had imagined she would! :dance: And the pokeball turned out way better than I pictured it, too! :dummy:
Thank you again! :iconredbullglompplz:

This is adorable, Lexa! Great job to both of you! :clap:

Flareon looks so cute in that pokeball...awesome idea with the yellow parts of her fur, by the way! :dummy: Back in the day, I loved Flareon, Eevee and all the other evolutions...they're just too cute not to like!

Thankyousomuch!! :glomp:
Oh, I know! I was so thrilled when that ended up working so well! :iconlawooplz: Aww! Yeah, the Eevee evlolutions (or, eeveelutions :XD: heehee!) have always been some of my favorites, too! =3 I forgot that you used to like Pokemon when you were a kid! :la: (Seems to me like we've talked about it before, but I can't quite remember...) It used to be my absolute favorite thing when I was a kid, and I still like it a lot. :D I'm really excited about making him his next poke`plushie! :dance:
