Sew Desu Ne?

The Monthly Crafting Challenge

Are you up for a year-long challenge? With the promise of free stuff? Then read on!

Starting off is easy! Just sign up for email updates and I’ll email you one free Japanese snack food plush pattern!
(You’ll be getting an email from shoriameshiko@gmail.com, so check your spam folder if necessary. Also keep in mind that if you follow me through WordPress your email won’t get sent to me. So you can email me to get the ball rolling if necessary.)

Already signed up? Well, here’s where the challenge comes in! I actually have twelve patterns waiting in the works. So each month, for the entire month, I’ll be giving out a different Japanese snack food plush pattern, and I challenge you to collect them all!

You can earn your next free plush pattern by making projects from my blog, or my books. Then email or message the pictures to my Facebook page (so I can respond back with the .pdf :D). It’s as simple as that! Make cute stuff, get free patterns!

You can keep this up every month for the rest of 2014 to collect the whole set of 12 patterns.
And if you want to catch up on previous months, you can find past Japanese food plush patterns for sale in my Etsy store. Not to mention the collection of 12 sushi plush patterns from 2013!

So there you have it! My challenge to you for the year of 2014, make something super cute every month and I’ll reward you handsomely :D

Still have more questions? Perhaps the FAQ can help you out!

Check out the prize for this month!

  1. Thank you x

  2. hello,
    I want to sing up, but I can’t seem to find any sing up form or something.
    maybe my english is just to bad and I don’t understand it good enough.
    sorry troubling you

  3. How do persribe? :D

    • There’s a little entry bar on the right side of the screen right below the Search bar that says “Follow Blog Via Email” (you can do a search for that phrase if it helps). Just pop your email into that and WordPress will send you a confirmation email for subscribing :D

  4. Hiiii I love your plushies! I’d love to send you a pic of something I’ve made from your book, but I don’t have a Facebook. Should I email it to you?
    Thnx, Amy

  5. Hi Choly, I just made some hats from your book. Can I get the free pattern of the month please?

  6. This might sound daft, or maybe I’m missing something. But is there a way to get these patterns without unsubscribing and resubscribing each month? I really enjoy them but I’m unsure how to continue as a loyal user without unsubscribing to your lovely blog :)

    • Not a problem! I’ll be happy to explain :D I will personally send you another pattern if you make one of the previous patterns (from other months or my books — things like that) and send me a photo of the finished project ^-^ You can either email the image to me or message it to me on Facebook. Then I’ll email the pattern for the current month right back to you ♥

  7. Err sorry to be a bother but it seems I have not been getting the patterns to my email D:”
    Daww missed out on mochis

    • I have that you signed up in November and I sent you that month’s pattern. Hopefully you received it!
      I don’t know if there was some confusion before, but to earn the pattern for other months I just ask that you send me a photo of a finished project :) So it’s kind of an ongoing challenge all year ^^;;

  8. Its so cute!
    I love it^^

  9. I’ve had subscribed but didn’t received the nikuman or the dango plush… (did I did anything wrong?) Can you help me?

    • I’m so sorry about that! I’ve sent an email your way to clear things up :D Hopefully you got it all right ♥

      • Sorry bout it, but didn’t received may and june ;-; dunno whats goin on… I will check my e-mail again later, but i didnt saw before…

      • Oh, I’m sorry! I didn’t receive any photo of a project you had finished. There might have been a miscommunication, but you receive a free pattern once you sign up, then you earn others by sending me photos of your creations. I hope that’s clearer!

  10. Thank you so much for giving these patterns away. I can’t wait to learn to sew (I can make straight lines! Kinda.) so I can make lots of awesome stuff!

    • Thank you so much for signing up! I’m so glad to be part of helping you get your feet wet in sewing ^-^ I hope we get to see some of your finished creations, and don’t hesitate to comment or email me if you run into any issues!

      • Definitely. I actually got your Sew Me Beginners book because I wanted to support you. (I saw all the free projects and I fell in love with trying at least some of them. And now I will probably drown in random doodads and bags.)

      • ^O^ thanks so much for your support! I’m glad you like the projects and I hope you have fun making them! I, too, know the feeling of drowning in random cute things XD My friends get so many weird handmade gifts.

  11. This is an excellent idea! I can’t wait to take on the challenge :)

  12. Hello. Sorry, I signed up to get the September pattern but never recieved it.

    • I’m so sorry! I have in my email that it went to the address listed here. I don’t know if you have another address but I’ve resent the patterns :) Maybe they’ll show up for you this time! Or maybe go to your spam folder XD;;
