Repeat this whole process 5 times for a total of 5 leaves.

ASSEMBLING

Place the feet a little more to the front of the body than the bottom to make Oddish able to sit. Pin them in place and begin to sew them, stuffing lightly as you go.

All five leaves will go on top of the body, but strategically placed.

The first leaf will be centered at the front as shown in the picture (left), the following two will go right behind this one, but widely open. The last two will go behind all previous ones and should “peak” through the leaves on the front as shown in the picture (right).

DETAILING THE FACE

Cut two circles of red felt of about 1cm in diameter and sew them between rounds 10 and 11 of the body, 5 Sc apart using the red embroidery floss. I sewed them on with only two stitches each at the edge of each eye.

The white “twinkle” on the eyes is made with a very simple over and under motion using the white embroidery floss.

The very last step is to draw the mouth with black embroidery floss, for this you will draw a very long “v”. Start one row below the eyes, go down one row and two sc to the side for the first stitch, and two sc to the side and one row up to make the second sitch.

And you’re done! You now have this adorable Oddish for your Pokemon collection.
