I've recently found some co-workers who also enjoy art and drawing and crafting of various kinds. I organized a 3-way swap with two friends, and this sweet little guy is one of the results. My co-worker listed Cubone as one of his favorite Pokemon and said he preferred cutesy styles over realistic ones, and wouldn't you know it, I found the perfect pattern. This is from a free pattern I found on Ravelry, also available at this link: http://www.loopteeloops.ca/2017/02/tiny-cubone-crochet-pattern.html.







I used DMC embroidery floss for everything and a US size 2 hook (found at an antique shop several years ago), and since I couldn't find safety eyes this small in the time limit I had, I used appropriately sized/shaped buttons I already had. Cubone is about 1.75" tall. He took me about 4-5 hours total, because of the super tiny size (I always drop so many stitches when working with floss) and the fact that every single piece of shaping is worked individually and then assembled! Every his little stomach is a separate piece... Love the final result though, and my co-worker was reduced to cooing incoherently at his adorableness. Mission accomplished! Wink

Also, this is my first posted project on Craftster! Yay!

I've been playing a LOT of Pokmon lately, so I knew what this was, even from the tiny thumbnail image on the main page!  Great job overall, especially on the skull, and it's cool that you were able to organize a little swap at work (no shipping costs, yay!)

Oh my gosh, my eyes hurt just thinking about making something with embroidery thread! You did a perfect job, it's amazing.

Thank you, all!  Cheesy I love doing micro-crochet, although it can be difficult and tiring. The results are just so cute! The tiniest crochet project I've ever done was a pair of hoop earrings with doilies inside the hoops--I did those with two strands of sewing thread held together and a magnifying glass! That tires the fingers...
