A while back, I purchased some beautiful pink Bernat Satin yarn. Three Full skeins for 6$ at the Sal Thrift Shop. For a long time I was unsure of what to do with this beautiful yarn. Then I found this pattern by Wolfdreamer and decided plushies are definitely the route to go. They need to be soft to snuggle, so why not use my satin yarn? I am addicted to this yarn now. It doesn’t agitate my eczema and it is so soft. This pink yarn was the perfect colour for Mew. My creation, as usual, turned out a little different than intended but I am happy with it.
I used a 4.5 mm hook, even though the yarn calls for 5-5.5 mm. I wanted a nice, tight stitch. I had issues sewing him together, but in the end I decided on this style instead of the original pattern. It matches my Flareon and it’s super cute. I used felt for the eyes, blue on white. Then sewed them on with regular thread.
I am addicted to making these plushies and soon I will get the hang of stitching them together. I can’t wait to make more and share them with you.
I hope this post inspired you to make some of your own items. If I inspire even one of you, I feel like I’ve done my work.
