Mimikyu Plush ♥ 12 Days of DIY

DIY Mimikyu Plush
On the eleventh day of 12 Days Of DIY I crocheted for you, a Mimikyu plush! Yes! Another Pokemon Sun and Moon Pokemon! After I made Popplio I wanted to make my second favorite Pokemon from Sun and Moon, Mimikyu. Mimikyu is Pokemon that disguises itself under a Pikachu veil. The black parts on the body are Mimikyu's eye. You are able to see Mimikyu's black feet under the Pikachu cloth but I decided not to make that part. Some may say Mimikyu is creepy but I have sympathy towards it because it dresses up as Pikachu because it's lonely and wants to make friends.

Lay the two parts on top of each other and sew together. Attach the tail by sewing it to the body. Sew the first square to the tail to the body so that Mimikyu's tail sticks up slightly.

For the face I used a plastic bag, glue, yarn and thread. First, I drew out Mimikyu's eyes, cheeks and month on the plastic bag and then I placed the thread in the cheek and eye spaces. I did the same for the month but used black yarn because Mimikyu's mouth in thicker looking. Wait until the glue is completely dry then carefully peel off all the pieces. Glue the all the parts onto the face and you are done with Mimikyu's face!

Now it's sewing time! Sew the head to the body and your Mimikyu is ready to be loved!
