New Crafting Challenge Pattern for August!

Hi everyone!

Well, July is finally over and in that time I reached another milestone! I made it to 150,000 pageviews on my deviantArt and I’m holding a plush giveaway to celebrate 😀 Stop on over to the dA page to check it out if you haven’t already 😀 My store also got a small update with just a few plushies last month. I’m hoping this month will allow me to introduce even more!

But anyway, down to plushie business! We have a new pattern that you can earn for the month of August and it’s:
A Neapolitanuki!

I think this guy might actually be my favorite out of the bunch! I mean look at him ^0^ he’s so fat and huggable! This pun is a mix of Neapolitan (the ice cream flavor that’s a collection of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla), and Tanuki, the Japanese raccoon-dog that shows up in lots of fun folklore. So combined we have a deliciously striped little raccoon! I like to think of his magic leaf as a mint leaf to finish off the dessert :3
Assembling this guy is not too bad ^-^ If you’ve made plushies before the body is nothing surprising. The tail might be a little tricky, what with all those curvy stripes. I made sure to put lots of markings on the pattern so you can match up your pieces easily.

★ So how do you get this pattern? ★
If you’re NEW to this site, start off by signing up for email updates between now and August 31st (found in the submission box on the right sidebar above “My Books”). This will earn you the pattern for THIS MONTH ONLY.

If you have trouble signing up, you can check out more info at the main Monthly Crafting Challenge page, the FAQ, or by emailing me.

★ What if you’re not new to this site? ★
If you’re already signed up for email updates, that’s where the CHALLENGE comes in. You can also earn this pattern if you make one of the projects from this blog, my books, or my Etsy then email me or message the finished project to my Facebook.

★ Also, bonus! ★
For today only I’m offering both this pattern and the one from July when you sign up or send in project photos. After today though, the prize is just this guy 🙂 You’ll have to purchase the older pattern through my Etsy if you’re too late.
So don’t forget to check back next month for a new punny food animal plush pattern, and keep sending me photos of your amazing creations!

  1. Hey Choly, lovely new pattern, looks great to cuddle with

    However I didn’t get last months pattern when I subscribed i thought i get it at the end but I never did.

    1. Oh no! I’m sorry about that :/ Sometimes when people sign up through WordPress alone I don’t get their email, but now that I have yours I sent the pattern your way 🙂 I hope you got it okay!

      1. Thank you so much, that does sound like a pain, thanks for the quick reply this plushie looks like it will be super fun to do 😀

  2. Hi, i signed up for the patterns, i got one pattern but it’s been two months and i did not get any other patterns.

    Anyway, i really love al the the things you make , your’ really good at this! continue this awesome work!

    greetz, your biggest fan 😜

    1. Hello! Thanks for all the kind words about my work!
      I’m so sorry about the confusion :/ But actually it’s only the first pattern that you get for free. You can earn subsequent patterns by messaging me photos of finished projects from my patterns 🙂
      Again, very sorry, but I hope that’s clearer!

  3. Hi there!  I signed up to follow your site last month and am obviously getting the updates (yay) but never received the free pattern?  I figured there was a glitch somewhere but just wanted to inquire.  I’d be totally fine with the plush from this month instead if that’s easier and if the offer for a pattern still stands — no matter either way.  Thanks!

    1. Oh no! I’m sorry! This one looks like another case of WordPress failing to give me your email when you signed up x_x I’ve sent the patterns your way now, though! Hopefully you got them okay 😀

  4. Hello, I’m sorry to bother you and I’m sure everyone asks this, but how exactly do I send you a picture of what I’ve made? I have made the Gunter plush, which is really cute thank you for creating the pattern. And I would like to get this one, because again it’s very cute :3 Thanks in advance!

    1. Sure thing! If you have a Facebook account, what’s easiest for me is if you pop over to my Facebook page and click on the “Message” button on the lower right beneath my logo (under where it says “craft blog”). From there you can message me your photo.
      Next best is just to email me and attach the picture there 🙂 Either way I’ll respond shortly with your pattern!

      1. Okay, thank you! I shall send an email shortly! ( As I don’t have a facebook account XD )

  5. I just dug through your blog and looked at all your pattern posts. So cute! I’m looking forward to more! I’d love to try these!
