I’ve got a new pattern I’ve added to my shop!
Among the requests I get for new doll expansions, ones for medieval fairy tale type adventures come up a lot — like witches, knights, and princesses. Well, last September I covered the witches, so now knights are up on the list! With this new expansion pack you can make armor for all of the dolls in my collection so far — dragons, birds, unicorns, and woodland animals all get to join in! Which means these would be perfect if you’re creating plush versions of your D&D character (seriously, seeing people use my patterns to make their D&D characters is my favorite thing, EVER ♥).
Included is a basic piece of armor for every part of the body, including a breastplate, pauldrons, bracers, thigh guards, shin guards — the list goes on! There’s also a Wonder Woman inspired suit of armor with skirt, and different helmets for each kind of animal — to work around different head shapes and extras like horns and ears. And for underneath there’s a classic tunic and simple pair of pants.
While I bet armor would look pretty amazing in a tougher material, like EVA foam or Worbla, I wanted to keep this project in the fabric realm so it’s more accessible. So this collection is made from felt for that rigid leather look while still being easy to sew. A big thanks to The Felt Pod where I purchased this awesome metallic felt!
To keep things interesting, the armor has a lot of embroidered elements. There are 3 options for each piece of armor to be exact: plates & rivets, filigree, and scales. All the files are included with the pattern this time, so there’s no need to purchase separately. And if you don’t have an embroidery machine, you’ll find the plate designs are easy to recreate in applique.
To celebrate the launch, the new pattern will be 30% off from now through Wednesday, May 5th. Meanwhile all my other doll patterns will be 20% off, and the rest of the shop will be 10% off. I hope you’ll give them a look! And if you snagged a copy of the new pattern, I hope you enjoy it!
