Pichu Keychain ^~^

More Pictures are available on Ravelry and Deviant Art
Sup humans,

Sorry I've been away for a while... We just had summer break and I went around Europe XD. However I couldn't bring any of my crochet stuff :(
Anyway I'm back now, school has started and I'm entering my final year of Middle School.
So I started this school year off by making a Pichu keychain. Its so cute XD
I was thinking it could also make a cool christmas decoration, it's the perfect size for baubles too. Now I'm imagining a whole christmas tree decorated in tiny Pichu heads...wow.
