Free Pattern Friday! Kitty Bean Plush


Hi everyone! This week I’ve made up a pattern that was inspired by the adorable Tsum Tsum plushies you see from Disney. I love the simple, stackable shape of their bodies so I created something similar that I called a bean ❤ Though you could easily whip out plenty as loads of different animals, I stuck with a classic kitty since they are usually everyone’s favorite.

What make them different, and what I love, are the adorable little feet that are nestled underneath their faces. I hope you’ll give the pattern a try, and maybe do your own cute spin on it!

Pattern Hack! Night Fury Hoodie

Halloween is fast approaching! So I thought I might share this fast costume idea 😀 It’s an add-on of sorts to my cosplay hoodie pattern, but it works just as well with other hoodie patterns or even with a hoodie you might already own. It’s all the extras you need to make a Night Fury hoodie 🙂

The pattern comes with templates for head spikes, horns, back spikes, applique face templates, and wings as well as instructions for how to insert them into my hoodie pattern. It could even work for the shrug pattern from earlier this month! If you’ve got some sewing experience, it’s easy to see how these fit into an already purchased hoodie as well. Altogether you’ll have an awesome costume in no time!

Free Pattern Friday! Witch Kitty Plush


The Halloween craziness continues! While thinking of other spooky-themed projects I realized I hadn’t done anything witch-related. A perfect opportunity to dress up a sweet little black cat!

I had so much fun putting this project together, especially because it gives you an opportunity to use bright Halloween colors like purple, acid green, and pumpkin orange. Not to mention lots of fun Halloween cotton prints that are always such a blast to go through at the fabric store. Use up your stash dressing up the little witch hat or capelet!

The finished plush is an adorable handheld size making it perfect to hang around on your desk during the rest of the Halloween weeks. I hope you guys will put your own fun twists on this character!

Free Pattern Friday! Eevee Evolution Hooded Shrug

It’s less than a month now until Halloween! So if you haven’t started your costume ideas yet, now might be a good time to get cracking! And today I have a really simple pattern that makes a great fast costume for sewing newbies 😀 It’s a cute hooded shrug made up to look like, yes, all 9 current Eevee evolutions 🙂

Just like my previous zippered pouch pattern, I felt I couldn’t possibly introduce this pattern without creating all 9 versions, so no one’s favorite gets left out. The pattern is for a fun short jacket that pairs well with lots of casual outfits so it makes a quick and super cute costume. The sizes are for adults and range from XS up to 5XL.
You can usually pick your size based what size t-shirt you wear, but there’s a size chart in the pattern file as well. Since the jacket isn’t super fitted, there’s some leeway with what size you pick. So larger kids could likely get away with an XS.

If you haven’t made much clothes before, this pattern will be perfect for you! If you have knowledge of darts and hemming you’re in the clear. The only thing that might slow you down is all the little details that make the characters what they are. I hope you all like it!

New Shop Pattern! Cerberus Plush

Hi everybody!
I’ve got a new pattern that I’ve recently added to my Etsy shop 😀

Being deep into Halloween season, I thought it might be fun to introduce another scary creature pattern into the mix! This Cerberus was very highly requested while I was doing my legendary creatures collection in 2016, but it took more time to tackle than I was able to handle. So after more time to test and work with the pattern I was finally able to come up with something 🙂
It’s got the classic beanie-style body seen in a lot of my other patterns, and of course it has the infamous three dog heads. They’re shaped to be a little pit-bull like with tiny floppy ears, but of course much cuter! Needless to say I’m sure fans of Harry Potter will get a kick out of this adorable version of ‘Fluffy.’ I rated it a 4/10 since it’s not too terribly difficult, although getting all three heads together is certainly trickier than one.

As part of the launch special, this pattern will be 30% off this weekend! To those of you that snagged a copy, I hope you all enjoy it, and happy Halloween sewing!
