New Crafting Challenge pattern for November!

Hello all!
I hope everyone had an amazing Halloween yesterday! I spent a lot of it sewing in front of the TV, watching silly scary movies and eating mouthfuls of York Peppermint Patties 😀 It’s so nice to move into another month and get one step closer to winter – or the closest thing we have to winter down here in Florida. I wasn’t very active here on the blog during October because of all the Halloween orders I was filling. It was a ton of fun getting to make others’ costumes, but hopefully this month I can move into making some more personal projects!

To kick off November I have a new plush pattern you can earn!
A Chocolate Gato!

This pun is multilingual again ^-^ and I love it! It’s based of the Spanish word for cat: gato, and the French word for cake: gâteau – which sound very similar. So together it’s a petit little cake with an adorable kitty head popping out the top. Little icing roses in brown and red finish it off.
Sewing up the cake and the kitty head are pretty simple, but putting it all together takes a lot of hand sewing, so just be prepared for that ^-^ It might be a pain to position everything just right, so basting the pieces in place first before going back and doing the real seams can be a big help.

★ So how do you get this pattern? ★
If you’re NEW to this site, this pattern is my one time only FREE gift to you! Just sign up for email updates between now and November 30th (found in the submission box on the right sidebar above “My Books”). This will earn you the pattern ONE TIME for THIS MONTH ONLY.
Give it about 24 hours for your new pattern to arrive after signing up. But if it doesn’t, or you have other troubles, 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’ve 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 October 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!

    Would you mind sending me this awesome pattern? I can’t send a photo to you right now because my IPhoto is playing up! I will send you a pic of the previous months creation as soon as I possibly can (when I can fix photos!)

    I know I am late but it isn’t my fault that IPhotos played up! (now I probably can’t get the cute pattern 🙁
    But it is a very cute pattern, btw I showed my Platypumpkin creation to my family and they absolutely love it! They think it is soooooo cute and they all want one now! Thanks very much!

    1. I’m so glad you like the Platypumpkin!
      You can take your time with the new photos though 😀 The offer to earn the Chocolate Gato plush pattern is all the way through November, so you have plenty of time!

  3. Will you ever offer these again? I found you far too late, but I love this whole set and would love a chance to purchase it!

      1. Thank you! I’d seen the ones in the store but noticed this one was missing, thank you very much for the pattern. 🙂
