Bind off leaving a tail to sew to the phone cover
Using the picture as a guide sew the ears into position just inside the back lip of the phone case
Note ensure you now have your cardboard in the cover to stretch it to the correct proportions and to prevent you from sewing through both sides. We will also be using glue in the next section so be sure to leave the cardboard in throughout!
Now for the tricky part - cutting, sticking and sewing the features!
Using the light brown felt cut out 2 long ovals with slightly pointed tips (using the picture to the left as a guide).
Glue the stripes into position on the back of the phone cover. Once the glue is dry sew into place with whip stitch and matching thread.
Cut two small circles from black felt for Pikachu's eyes. Using white embroidery thread sew his pupils as pictured.
Cut two small circles from red felt for Pikachu's cheeks.
Cut Pikachu's mouth and tongue from the dark red and pink felt using the picture as a guide.
Position the face features on the front of the phone cover, using the picture as a guide and leaving a gap for the nose. Glue into position. Once the glue is dry secure the features using the correct colour thread and whip stitch.
Finally embroider a small nose for Pikachu using black embroidery thread and the picture at the top of this post as a guide.
Et voilà you have finished your Pikachu phone cover! I really hope you have fun making it, and please be sure to share pictures with me here, on the Ravelry project page, or over on Instagram!
