Jirachi

Jirachi: Max!
Max: Huh?
Jirachi: I'm gonna miss you! We'll be best, best friends, forever and ever.


As many of you may know by now, I'm a big fan of Pokemon.  So it's no wonder that the new pattern here is another Pokemon, as well as my first Legendary!  I know there are already a couple Jirachi patterns out there, but I wanted to make my own.  Now let's get to it!

Jirachi the Wish Maker
Materials
-WW yarn in yellow, white, aqua(for shiny Jirachi, replace the aqua with red), and a little bit of black.  I used Red Heart Super Saver in Bright Yellow, White, Turqua(Cherry Red for shiny), and Black
-Felt in a dark blue, green-blue, black, and white(for shiny, use a pink in place of green-blue)
-Stuffing
-G hook
-Hot Glue Gun
Optional Matials!
-Felt in a medium blue(red felt for shiny) and pale yellow
-Fabric paint in dark blue, black, and green blue(pink if making a shiny Jirachi)

Fun Fact!  My Jirachi turned out to be just a tiny bit bigger than the "real" thing!  Thing is, though, I crochet rather tightly.  You could easily use a F hook for this pattern, if you're comfortable using one.

F/O with a tail just a bit longer than your hook.  Weave in your shorter tail, and use the long tail you started with to sew this piece to the back of Jirachi at Rnd 23 of Body, about 2 stitches apart.  (Quick note, the reason for decreasing like this is it helps keep Jirachi's "wing" looking smooth.)

Detail work:
Step 1)  First off, decide if you want your Jirachi's Eye of Truth to be open or shut.  If you want it shut, simply embroider one onto the belly with some black yarn.  If you want it open, cut out the base(a pointed oval, like an eye!) out of the pale yellow, and a circle of medium blue(red if shiny).  Glue the circle to the center of the oval, then glue that to the belly where you would have embroidered the closed eye.
Step 2)  Time for the face!  Once agian, decide if you wanna paint the eye details, or just do it all in felt.  If this is your first time making a plush, or you're not that sure of your painting skills, do this buy cutting all the pieces from felt, the black being your base.  This includes the under the eye triangle things.  If you want to challenge yourself, or you have made painting skills, bust out your paint and an eye base cut from white felt!
1)  Mark out where you want the light shine to be.  This part will remain un-painted.
2)  Paint all but the area of eye shine with the dark blue.  Give this time to dry(this can take a little as an hour, or as many as 3-5 hours, depending on your paint, and how thick you lay it on).
3) Once the dark blue is dry, paint on the puple area with black.  Once again, give this time to dry.  When it's dry, glue it to Jirachi's face.
4) Paint little upside-down triangles under Jirachi's eyes, using a green-blue if making a "standard" Jirachi, and use a pink paint if making a shiny.
Step 3)  Give Jirachi a smile, and your done!  Now go enjoy your little Wish Maker!

Sweet Bonus!  Sleeping Jirachi!
To make a sleeping Jirachi, make the Head, Head Dress, Wish Tags, and Face Danglys as before.  The body will be made as told below.
Sleeping Jirachi Body: with Bright Yellow
Rnd 1) 8 sc in magic ring (8)
Rnd 2) inc around (16)
Rnd 3) (sc, inc) repeat around (24)
Rnd 4) (sc 2, inc) repeat around (32)
Rnd 5) (sc 3, inc) repeat around (40)
Rnd 6) (sc 4, inc) repeat around (48)
Rnd 7-9) sc even (48)
Rnd 10) (sc 4, dec) repeat around (40)
Rnd 11-16) sc even (40)  Start stuffing body at this point, if you haven't already.  Stuff firmly and shape the body as you go. Continue to stuff firmly and shape as you go along
Rnd 17) (sc 3, dec) repeat around (32)
Rnd 18-19) sc even (32)
Rnd 20) (sc 2, dec) repeat around (24)
Rnd 21-22) sc even (24)
F/O with a long tail, finish stuffing.  Sew to head, matching up rnd 24 of head with rnd 24 of body.

Detail Work for Sleeping Jirachi
Step 1) Assemble the head the same as Awake Jirachi.  Wish Tags are in the next step.
Step 2) Sew the Wish tags to the Star Points so that they lay flat and stay put.
You want your sleeping Jirachi to look like this.
Step 3) Embroider on some little sleepy eyes with black yarn, and a little dot mouth.  With either felt or fabric paint, put the up-side-down triangles under Jirachi's eyes with the colour that matches up with the colour pallet you've decided on.

Now you have a Sleeping Jirachi!

Wilt Michaels of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends

Hi everyone!  I've got a new pattern for you all, and let me just say, it's kinda complicated in parts.  Any way, I'll just get get out of the way, and get on to the pattern.


Wilt Michaels
Materials
-WW yarn in red, white, blue, black, and cream(I used RedHeart Super Saver in Cherry Red, White, Blue, Black, and Aran)
-White and blue felt(or blue fabric paint), and a little bit of black felt
-Black fabric paint
-1 6mm saftey eye
-1 red pipe cleaner
-Small dowel cut to 4 inches long
-G hook
-Hot glue gun and glue sticks


Head:
Okay, before I go on to the pattern, let me just say that I'm sorry it's kinda, well, tricky.  Now, moving on!

Starting with "Head Spikes"

"Stitched" spikes: make 2 with red
Rnd 1) 6sc in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2) (inc, sc 2) repeat around (8)
Rnd 3) (inc, sc 3) repeat around (10)
Rnd 4) (inc, sc 4) repeat around (12)
Rnd 5) (inc, sc 5) repeat around (14)  Change to black
Rnd 6) (inc, sc 6) repeat around (16)  Change to red
Rnd 7) (inc, sc 7) repeat around (18)
Rnd 8) (inc, sc 8) repeat around (20)
Rnd 9) sc even (20)  F/O, leaving a long tail on one, and a tail just a wee bit longer than your hook on the other.

Non-Stitched Spikes: make 4 with red
Rnd 1-9: Repeat rnds 1-9 of the stitched spikes, leaving out the colour change.
F/O two of the spikes with a long tail, one with a tail just a wee bit longer than your hook, and DO NOT F/O you last Spike.

Head: Main Part!
Rnd 10) sc into the first 10 sc of that last spike.  Take the "stitched" spike that has the shorter tail and sc into the first 10 sc of it.  Now take the non-stitched spike that has the shorter tail and sc in all 20 sc.  Sc in the remaining sc of the other two spikes. (60)
Rnd 11) Sc even (60) Now, using the tails from your joined in spikes, sew the gaps in rnd 10 shut.  Go ahead and stuff the spikes if you want to do so now.
Rnd 12-15) Sc even (60)
Rnd 16) (dec, sc 8) repeat around (54)
Rnd 17-21) Sc even (54)
Rnd 22) (dec, sc 7) repeat around (48)
Rnd 23-32) Sc even (48)
Rnd 33) (inc, sc 7) repeat around (54)
Rnd 34-38) Sc even (54)
Rnd 39) (inc, sc 8) repeat around (60)
Rnd 40-45) Sc even (60)  F/O.  Stuff head modertly.  You want Wilt to have a 3D head, but don't stuff too much, as you want his head to be kinda-sorta flat.  Stuff the other spikes in the same way, then sew them to the head.  You want the "stitched" spike to be at the top of his head, then put the other two under that.  Go ahead and weave in the ends on that head!

Rnd 1) 6 sc in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2) inc around (12)

Rnd 9) dec around (6) Change to red, finish stuffing eye.
Rnd 10-20) sc even(6)
F/O with a long tail.  Insert your dowel rod into the eye stalk.  You'll see that your dowel is a about an inch longer than your eye stalk.  That's okay!  You want it to be, as what doesn't fit in the eye ball and eye stalk is to be inserted into the head.  Place the eye to the right side of the center-top of head.  Sew in place.

Eye Lid for Right eye: with red
Rnd 1-4) Repeat rnds 1-4 of Right eye.
F/O with a long tail, sew to back of eye.

Rnd 5) dec around (6) change to red, place saftey eye between rnds 2 and 3, stuff eye ball.
Rnd 6-25) sc even (6)
F/O with a long tail.  Fold your pipe cleaner in half, twist it together gently, and insert it in the same way as the dowel rod for the right eye.  Place this eye to the left side of the center top of head and sew in place.  Bend to look like Wilt's zig-zaggy eye.

Eyelid for Left eye: with red
Rnd 1-3) repeat rnds 1-3 of Left eye
F/O with long tail, sew to back of eye.

Putting the foot together!
Step 1) Using the first long tail from the bottom of the foot, sew one side of the shoe to the sole, going from row 1-30 of both, using double whipstitch(just double up your whipstitches).  Repeat on other side of foot with the other long tail, going from row 30-1, stuffing the shoe/foot as you go.
Step 2) Using the black tails from the tops of the shoes, sew the 3 black stitches on each side to the sides of rows 31-32.
Step 3) Still using those tails, sew the white part to the black part on each side.  Now weave in all those ends, stuff  the top of Wilt's high top, and move on to the next part!


Legs
Rnd 1) With white, join onto the top of the shoe at some point in the back with a single crochet.  Working evenly, sc 11 more times around the top of the shoe. (12)
Rnd 2-30) sc even, stuffing as you go (12) change to blue.
Rnd 31-32) sc even, stuffing as you go (12) F/O blue, change back to white.
Rnd 33-36) sc even, stuffing as you go (12) change to red.
Rnd 37-38) sc even, stuffing as you go (12) change back to white.
Rnd 39-40) sc even, stuffing as you go (12) F/O white, change back to red.
Rnd 41-100) sc even, stuffing as you go (12)
F/O with long tail.  Sew to bottom of body, with inside of leg at about rnd 2 of body.

Detail Work
Step 1) Using the pics as reference, add the stitch detail to Wilt's "stitched" head spikes, and his left arm over top of the rnd of black.
Step 2) Start heating up your hot glue gun, and cut out you felt peices!  You'll need a black oval for Wilt's Right eye, a white number 1, a slightly smaller blue number 1, a big white smile, and 4 small white ovals for Wilt's shoes.
Step 3) Glue the blue number 1 to the white number 1, then glue that to the front of Wilt's body.  Alterntly, you can just paint the smaller blue number 1 onto the white number 1, then glue that onto Wilt in the same way once it has dryed.
Step 4) Glue the black oval to Wilt's Right eye to give him a puple/iris(idk if it's one or the other).
Step 5) Glue on Wilts mouth, then paint the three "teeth lines" onto it with the black fabric paint once the glue has had time to cool and dry.
Step 6) With either stitching or black fabric paint, add in the shoe lace and toe details to the shoes, then glue the little white ovals to Wilt's high tops, using the pics as reference for placement.

And that's it!  Once all the paint has dryed, and all the glue has cooled, you'll have yourself your very own Wilt!


As a cool side note, you can made the version of Wilt seen in the flashbacks from "Good Wilt Hunting" by making 6 of the non-stitched head spikes, two of the Right Eye, two Wrist Bands, and making a second arm, as follows below:

Alternet Left Arm: with red
Thumb: with red
Rnd 1) 6sc in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2) inc around (12)
Rnd 3-4) sc even (12)  Stuff fingertip lightly
Rnd 5) dec around (6)
Rnd 6-14) sc even (6)  Stuff thumb lightly
F/O with a tail a little longer then your hook.  Set aside for now.

Fingers, make 3:
Rnd 1) 6sc in magic ring (6)
Rnd 2) inc around (12)
Rnd 3-4) sc even (12)  Stuff fingertip lightly
Rnd 5) dec around (6)
Rnd 6-16) sc even (6)  Stuff finger lightly
F/O the first two in the same way as the thumb, DO NOT F/O the last one.
