Assembly


  • - Stitch on the cheeks on the side of the face
  • - Put the Cloak Hood at the back of the head and attach around to the head using the Aran yarn. Attach at the bottom of the head and the beside the eyes and at the top of the head, leave gaps around the cheeks.
  • - Attach the front flap so that the point is between Pikachu's eyes.
  • - Attach the ears towards the back to leave room for the details of Mimikyu's face.
  • - Attach the buttons just in front of the ears.
  • - Using the black yarn stitch a zig-zag for the mouth.
  • - Using the red yarn stitch a swirl for the cheeks at the sides of cloak hood.
  • - Attach body to the head
  • - Attach the Bottom Flaps pointing down along the colour change of the body.
  • - Attach the arms at the sides of the body, leave space from the head to the arm to attach the sleeves.
  • - Feed the arm through the sleeve and attach to the body.
  • - Attach the Mimikyu eyes at the front of the body.
  • - Add stitching details to the cloak to add extra details, I believe it makes it look more like a costume.
  • - Attach the feet to the bottom, pointing them forward and evenly spaced.
  • - Attach the tail at the back under the colour change. Stitch all around the brown of the tail.
