Pikachu crochet coffee cup cosy

Hello! Happy Australia Day! I hope you all had a super day today - I really did! Australia Day is Philip's (Pip's boyfriend) birthday and they very kindly invited me to join a lovely lunch and then I spent the rest of the day listening intently to the Triple J Hottest 100 (I was very pleased with the outcome!). Anyways, Philip is a fan of Pokemon so for his present I made a Pikachu cuff to go around his new travel coffee cup.

Awww, isn't it cute? ^_^

This was really easy to make! I just crocheted a basic cuff and four circles for the eyes and blushing cheeks and used hot glue to attach them together. I used felt for the white parts of the eyes and nose and embroidered the mouth. I also added black felt behind the eyes so the little hole in the middle was less visible (you can hardly make it out now).

Anyway, I hope you like it! 

Happy Birthday Philip!

Happy Australia Day everyone!
