A Pokeball

I finally made something new!

That recent stash busting post I did motivated me to start working on some of the things I have been meaning to make. One of the first things on my list was this:

Pokeball

A Pokeball!

I’ve been meaning to make a quick and easy plushie to add to my Etsy inventory and this is it. (I’ll be adding it shortly – just need to take a few pictures!)

Edit: Pokeball listing can be found here. Price has been recently reduced! Please check out my other PokΓ©mon plushies while you’re there.

It also makes the perfect add-on item to my Jigglypuff plushie! πŸ˜€

But, because I love you, I am also making this pattern available to you.

(Plus, there are a million different Pokeball patterns out there so why keep mine a secret?)

πŸ˜‰

Enjoy!

If you’re a Ravelry user and have finished a Pokeball, I’d love to feature your finished item! Project page can be found here.
