I made this stuffed Oddish* plushie for a friend awhile ago, but I never posted it here on Craftster.  So here it is!

*Oddish is a Pokemon, for those unfamiliar with himCheesy


I did a private swap with her; the Oddish was the "main" swap item, but I sent some other items to go with it.  Oddish is chillin' on one of those Ikea chairs.


And here's a picture of the Oddish plushie in comparison to a human.


I love plushies, but I like BIG ones - ones that you can wrap your arms around.  I also wanted to make Oddish life-size and based on pictures I googled, and I think I was close!

Oddish is made of fleece, flannel, polyfiberfill, and felt (for his facial features).  I didn't use a pattern, and everything was cut freehand.  I just cut out five panels and sewed them together wrong-side out, only to realize that four was more than enough...  After removing the extra panel, I flipped the ball-shape right-side out, positioned his features, and then handsewed them on.  Then I flipped it wrong-side out again.  I cut out circles using some kind of circular thing in my house and his feet.  The feet were stuffed and then sewn in between the bottom and body pieces. More fiberfill was added to make him firmer.

His leaves were sewn from flannel, loosely stuffed, and then topstitched down the middle.  I pinned the leaves to the inside of the body, added the top circular piece, and handstitched them in place, making sure to leave some room to flip the entire plushie, leaves and legs, inside out.  And then I crammed more fiberfill into him and sewed the opening shut.  (I probably should've added more fiberfill, but Oddish was pretty fluffy.  I guess that fiberfill settles. :p)

So there you have it!  A big cuddly Oddish. Cheesy

My friend was so happy and loved him, and well, Oddish couldn't have a better owner than her!

My son is in love, especially when he realised how big it was. Grin

It looks great, I love that you stuffed the leaves as well.

That's absolutely adorable!!
I love the old-school pokemon [aka, the first 99], and you've done a fantastic job at him!
That is definitely getting wisted! Tongue

I forgot to check back on this thread (work has been kicking my butt and making me senile at the same time), but I wanted to thank all of you for all of your sweet, encouraging comments. Cheesy

I'm thinking about making a gigantic mudkip one of these days, but that's a project that will require a bit more thought and planning...

Thanks again. <3
