Pattern Hack Pokemon

I wanted to make a Jigglypuff for a friend. Because everyone loves Jigglypuff!
I bought the Chubby Dragon plush pattern by Sew Desu Ne as a jumping off point. Their patterns are excellent! So many great tips for sewing with fleece and minky fabrics. I highly recommend their patterns. If you're saving your pennies, you can still get started because there are so many free patterns available. I used an online image to help me design the machine embroidery for the eyes. It isn't perfect, but there was a limit to how many times I was willing to do a stitch out for a design I would only use once. I did learn a thing or two about embroidery design along the way, though.
I got to this point and realized I had a stuffing shortage. I don't buy poly filler often, so it wasn't really a surprise that I had run out.
I made a trip to the nearest big-box craft store to pick up some essentials. I could have ordered on Amazon and waited for the products to arrive, but the trip to the store included lunch with my best and some walking around Annapolis, which is always fun. The weather was beautiful (in the 60s), but sometimes gusty.
In the end, I got Jiggly stuffed and stitched up. Jigglypuff is now in its new home and as happy as ever.
