New Product! Cut & Sew Bat Plush

15 Comments

Hey everyone!
Over the last few months I’ve really been getting into Spoonflower – the awesome service where you can get custom-printed fabric. I’ve been using them a lot for custom gifts for friends and family, and I thought I’d try them out to make a custom-printed version of my popular bat plush pattern. This way the fabric itself has a lot of fun details, and the faces are printed right on so it’s super fast to sew up! This is what resulted!

Their custom-printed minky produces really bright and crisp colors, even after washing 🙂 The classic darker colors like the gray and purple still have some white show up in the seams, but it tends to make the finished product look weathered in a cute kind of way. But if that’s not your thing, the lighter pastel ones don’t have that issue at all.

I created 12 different designs — you can check them out by clicking the corresponding thumbnails below. The bats need a fat quarter of minky or fleece to fit all the pieces, but that means if you buy a whole yard you get 4 bats! So you’ll find there are some combination options that let you buy a sampler of 4 bats at once.

The original instructions are changed just slightly to accommodate the fabric, and you can find them here: https://cholyknight.com/bat-plush/. I hope you guys like the options, and of course let me know if you’re interested in any other designs or prints! These were super fun to make and put together ♥

    what a very very great idea ! I’m in to order directly the zombie one and the stars one ! I love working with spoonflower and I love your pattern.

    By the way, I use this email to thank you for all the free patterns you offer, for the moment I only tried the batty one, but I need to make the ctulhuh as well !

    I have red a thousand time all the little lines on the pdf to be sure I could sell them, and, as asked, Your name and the link to your website was on the selling page of my website.

    And people adored the bats ! the two were sold very quickly ! ❤

    I add some pictures of them..

    Now I'm going to have some zombies one ! I can't wait the fabric !

    so, thank you again, I never let any comments on social media or after the newsletter but I really enjoy your work. and now, in a way, I can give money back for all the free patterns you send !

    Have a very nice day !

    Coffin Rock !

  3. Soooo CUTE, Choly! I love the prints. They truly bring a new look to your patterns. Keep up the great work – love your designs!

  4. I am probably completely missing it, but is there a link directly to the bat plushie on spoonflower?

  5. These are adorable! In the 80s, I used to be able to buy printed toys to sew; they weren’t expensive, but they weren’t difficult (most were egg shapes) & i miss that cutting & piecing ease.
    I’d love to see several of these for sale, including the Shiba Cube, the octopus, the donuts, & the Usagi Manju. Also, I’d also love to see your take on cars (I have one teenage granddaughter, & EIGHT grandsons) I bet they’d be super cute, & irresistible!

  6. Well now I know what to get my kiddos for Halloween. These are amazing!!!!

  7. I am ordering 2 sets I am so excited. Would love to see other prints.

  8. Wow, this is both supe cute and realy ingenious! I need these.

  9. You should do this with your werewolf, steam punk animals, kirin, love koi, and dragons! That would be awesome and I love this idea!
