Pokemon Amigurumi: Tiny Umbreon

This week, I managed to complete my amigurumi Umbreon! This guy is one of the tiniest plush that I have completed so far.

It all started with my cousin prompting a request to make some eeveelutions that could fit on his desk. I remembered there was a time where I tried making things out of crochet thread, but I never really sustained enough interest to finish a nice-looking tiny plush; this prompt inspired me to pick up tiny crocheting again.

I went and bought some new crochet hooks, ranging from sizes 6.5mm to 0.9mm. I ended up using the 1.9mm size hook with super-fine/size 1 yarn to make the umbreon.

Compared to the past couple projects, this one had fewer technical details to figure out; I only needed to crochet the head, ears, tail, and legs. With small parts made from rounds that were no bigger than 18 scs, all the parts could fit onto my hand.

Next I stitched on the eyes and yellow markings; I felt like the yellow markings needed to be stitched for a plush this size. The eyes were made with tiny pieces of red felt, stitched into place and painted with black fabric paint.

The result: tiny amigurumi umbreon, almost as small as the official pokemon figurines! I was on a streak, and I made the entire plush in 5 hours or so!
