Anyway, my Godson was SOOO excited by the gift. I can't tell you how heart warming it was to see him run around with his cousins and the party with that Cyndaquil always in tow. Heck, I'm pretty sure that if I got an awesome gift like that for Christmas I'd be toting it around with me, too! Even at 25.
His older brother thought it was so cool that he had gotten a pokemon toy that he asked me to make him one too. I was more than happy to oblige, so I pulled up the list from WolfDreamerOTH and let him pick which one he wanted. Of course he chose one of the harder ones, Lugia, which is pictured on the left. ;) It was another growing experience for me, though. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out and so was he!
Next time you need a toy gift and you want to make it yourself, I would suggest heading over to WolfDreamerOTH's blog for some patterns. You won't be disappointed.
