Pokemon Amigurumi: Exeggcute

With Easter this weekend, I thought I’d stick to a theme! Today we have exeggcute, complete with a pattern to try out.

This pokemon literally consists of a main egg, four posse eggs, and a cracked posse egg; these shapes ended up being roughly the same size as a real medium or large sized egg. A lot of the features were stitched on, so hopefully it will be clear on how to make the details.

Attach felt eyes and stitch mouth on; eyes were roughly stitched into place, using the black thread.

Once the eyes were set in place, the edges of the eyes were stitched repeatedly by using overhand loops. Moving in a clockwise direction helped me keep the stitches neat and more evenly-spaced.

The mouth was roughly stitched on, using a few straight stitches to mark the area; the mouth was then defined using the overhand stitching method, around the straight stitches. The pupils were painted on using black fabric paint.

Attach felt eyes and mouths, and stitch on crack lines and closed mouths; the felt eyes and mouths were stitched using the overhand loop method, as well as the straight stitch and overhand loop method. The crack lines were made using strictly straight stitches.

Here’s a closeup of the faces, for reference:

Once all of the eggs are complete, attach all the posse and cracked eggs around the main egg; from the completion of the individual pieces, I kept the end bits of yarn long to attach them together.

Here’s the end result:
