This was made at the request of my BF, a Pikmin/ general Nintendo fanboy.

I think it turned out pretty cute, I made the pattern by finding a picture of a Pikmin and zooming in on it, then carefully tracing around the image on the monitor.....it was a quick little crafty fix for my Good Friday/ Saturday boredom.....

It makes me giggle, I enjoy making it dance on my cat. Yup.

Here's the pattern I used....sorry for the crappy drawing!! But it should still work ok.  For the veins on the leaf I just used a split stitch, and you may need to make the antenna a little wider depending on the pipecleaner you put in it (if you want to). I cheated a lil and glued the eyes and inner ears on, just so they would look neater. If you use this pattern, please don't sell it, this is for happiness, not profit!! ENJOY!!!!!!

PS: Please post your pics Smiley

I don't even own the game, and now I want to make one of these li'l guys! *sigh* Gee, thanks a lot...after years and years of waiting, I finally just bought a PS2 and We Love Katamari, and now you've gone and made me wish I'd bought Pikmin instead! Would have been a lot cheaper, since I already have a GameCube...>.<

I want to pat this little guy on the head, except of course for his, er, antenna or whatever. I love the detail on the leaf. Smiley And the ears. Your stitching looks great in the picture - I'm totally jealous! And a million points to you for crafting something video gamey! Cheesy The more I look at this, the more I want one...

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

Thanks everybody for the kind words, Craftster is so encouraging!! Do you know how awesome it is to be able to post a pic of a video game character, and get "kudos" instead of "huh?" Cheesy  If anyone is interested I can post the pattern I made, and you can have your very own Pikmin to lurve and squeeze and hold forever and ever.....

Coming soon........BLUE!!
