I did follow loosely a pattern for this gift for my boyfriend’s brother, but I made the body a little shorter by skipping some rows. Can you believe Pokemon is still popular? Pikachu is so cute. The face was fun because I think I got it pretty accurate. For the mouth, I stitched every other for each curve, turned around and filled in the gaps. It worked really well. Maybe I’ll make a video of that if my description is confusing.
