Hello everyone! June turned out to be a very busy month for me so I couldn’t create a new shop pattern. But I took a page from last month to create some updates and hacks to previous patterns! These are more well-needed additions that I wish I had time for when the patterns were first made, but couldn’t manage to see it through.
So this week will be update week! I have 4 free updates to share with you all, and I’ll be adding a new one each day to this post so they all have a chance to shine.
And finally the last update for this week is my favorite of the bunch! A pattern hack for Mothra! This of course is the awesome kaiju from the series of Godzilla movies. It was requested a bunch during the release of my Moth & Butterfly pattern and I was so sad that I didn’t have time to develop her along with all the other species.
So if you have a copy of my Moth & Butterfly pattern, you can make this awesome variation! She has a new face, antennae, back markings, and of course the epic wing markings. Just like in the original pattern the wings come in two sizes. This helps with either how much applique or sewing you want to do or if you have embroidery hoop limits. There are applique templates for the face, body, and wings as well as embroidery files down below.
If you don’t have a copy of the Moth & Butterfly pattern, you’ll find that it’s 30% off from now through July 6th as part of my 4th of July sale!
And that wraps up all the updates for this week! I hope you all enjoyed them and will get a lot of fun and use out of them. The sale will still run all through the weekend to Wednesday, so you have plenty of time to pick up anything you missed, whether it’s one of the featured patterns for 30% off or anything else for 20% off! Thank you everyone who stopped by!
Third on my list of updates is some new embroidery for the Sitting Wildcat pattern from back in 2020. The pattern covers lots of different wildcats like cheetahs, lions, tigers, and even a caracal. While the applique templates and embroidery included stripes and plain spots, I had a lot of requests for the two-tone “rosettes” you see on jaguars and leopards. So I created some new embroidery files that cover all the body pieces in these fun new body markings.
If you have a copy of my Sitting Kitten & Wildcat Plush pattern, then you’re all set! The download below has the new body embroidery files. If you don’t have a copy and would like to give the new spots a try, both the original pattern and the whole embroidery pack are 30% off from now through July 6th as part of a 4th of July sale! The original embroidery pack as been updated with the new jaguar rosettes and instructions.
Up next for the updates are some new zipper directions for the Reversible Dragon & Unicorn Patterns! It’s not surprising that a zipper would be a huge help for this project since it keeps everything tucked away nicely when the plush is flipped. However the downside is you need a reversible zipper since it has to work from both the dragon and egg sides. Back when I designed this pattern in 2019, reversible zippers weren’t as easy to find. But it has been on my mind for the last 3 years and I’ve found some more sources for them.
Here are some good options I found in the USA:
So with more options, I feel little more confident sharing everything I know about finding reversible zippers, sewing with them, or options build your own. This free update includes all of that information as well how to install it into the reversible plush too, of course ♥
If you have a copy of my Reversible Dragon or Reversible Unicorn plush pattern, then you’re all set! The download below gives you all the new information! If you don’t have a copy of either of these patterns, you’ll find that they’re 30% off from now through July 6th as part of a 4th of July sale! The patterns have the new zipper information integrated into the instructions so there’s no need to download the update if you don’t want to.
Up first is Twig from Hilda! This adorable guy is the deer fox companion from the popular Netflix cartoon. I’m absolutely in love with his simple and sweet design Many fans have noticed that his design lends itself well to some of my previous patterns. So I created this pattern hack so you can make your own Twig really easily!
If you have a copy of my Fawn & Unicorn plush pattern or the Farm Mammals plush pattern, you can make this version of Twig. You’ll use the new face, ear, antler, and tail pieces to swap out the original templates. There are applique templates for his new face and body markings as well as embroidery files you can download below.
If you don’t have a copy of either of these patterns, you’ll find that they’re 30% off from now through July 6th as part of a 4th of July sale! And also as part of the sale, everything else is 20% off
I hope you enjoy the new addition!

trop trop chouette,merci merci à toi

Just a question; In the discription of the Reversible Dragon/Unicorn it says that for the unicorn, you need to make the body and egg bigger.. But isn’t that the same one as for the dragon body? (same principle?) So do you need to make the body/egg longer for the dragon as well?
Yes, for the unicorn the opening on the body works a lot better for flipping if it’s a little longer, but the shape of the unicorn body made the opening gape strangely if it was too big. This wasn’t the case for the dragon because the dragon has a tail going down the center that allowed the belly opening to be longer without looking too odd. But since the zipper solves the problem with the gaping, you can make the unicorn opening longer without it looking strange.
I hope that makes sense!
