Free Pattern Friday! Kero-chan & Suppi Plush

Hi everybody!
As some long-time fans may know, I have made some Cardcaptor Sakura patterns in the past 😀 And since the new series has been out I’ve gotten a lot of requests to make these little guys ❤ So I finally gave it a go! With this one pattern you can make either Kero-chan or Suppi! Ready to go on card capturing adventures.

They both have huge ears and cute little faces as well as puffy wings and floppy bodies that can sit up if you put beans in their bottom. Sewing the arms, wings, and tail gets a little crowded when doing the body, so I rated this one a 4/10 in difficulty. But there’s a tip in the instructions to help you through it ♥ The ears sewn partially into the head darts accounts for the rating too, but you could also just fold the ears instead.

You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. Both faces are small enough to sew entirely in a 4" x 4" hoop so no one is left out!

Free Pattern Friday! Moogle Plush

Hi everyone! Kupo!

After I made a Chocobo pattern back in June of last year, I had an overwhelming slew of requests to make a Moogle. How could I say no when Final Fantasy is pretty much my favorite video game franchise? This little guy has all the classic Moogle features, a big red pom pom, tiny wings, smiling eyes, and of course a big red nose. I also love that they have pudgy little bellies and fluffy neck ruffs too ♥

It has a lot of little pieces that are sewn on by hand, like the wings and arms. Luckily the neck ruff helps cover any mistakes with the neck if it gives you a tough time. But overall I gave it a 3/10 in difficulty.

You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. The face is small enough to sew entirely in a 4″ x 4″ hoop so no one is left out!
I hope all you Final Fantasy fans like it!

Free Pattern Friday! Hooded Cowl

Hi everybody!
With Halloween coming I couldn’t resist the urge to make something costume related, so while this isn’t a plush I hope you all might still enjoy it! It’s a cozy hooded cowl dressed up either like a dragon or a unicorn. Paired with a warm coat or a fuzzy sweater I think it would be the perfect thing to keep you cozy and cute while trick-or-treating.

It includes sizes from baby up to large adult so everyone in the family can have one! And if you’re not into the hooded cowl look, you can use the dragon or unicorn parts for a hoodie or scoodie or anything else with a hood! It’s hard not to love the look of those dragon spikes or the big blooming flowers around the unicorn horn.

The cowl on its own is pretty simple and would be great for someone new to sewing that hasn’t made a lot of clothes yet. It’s also a good way to practice sewing buttonholes. All of the dragon and unicorn details give it a little extra time and difficulty, so I rated it a 3/10.

I hope it might help some of you with your autumn sewing!

Free Pattern Friday! Catbus Plush

Hi everyone!
I’ve got another Ghibli pattern in tow! I can’t believe how many I’ve done so far ❤ But there was huge support for this one over the past year. It was even more fun to design and make than I anticipated 😀 The big bus body with loads of little legs are just so silly and awesome; I hope you all enjoy my take on it!
I’ve rated it a 4/10 since the head is sewn on a little differently and all the legs can be tricky. But besides that it’s a lot of basic geometry to handle the bus body, so it might feel more like a 3 for you depending on what you’re comfortable with.
You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included. The face needs at least a 5” x 7” hoop as well as the body sides. However, the back of the plush, which has the tiny bus sign, only needs a 4” x 4” hoop. For fun I did the embroidered version in Tim Burton’s Cheshire Cat colors ❤ complete with glow-in-the-dark eyes. I hope you all enjoy it!

Free Pattern Friday! Chocobo Plush

Hi everyone!
This pattern is another one that’s been highly requested over the past several months 😀 It was such a joy to make because Final Fantasy is probably my favorite game franchise and I’m really glad it’s still going strong with classic creatures like these silly birds ❤
I wanted to take the character in a slightly different direction than the officially licensed plushies and go with something more like art from the game. So these Chocobos have huge beaks that are almost toucan-like. And of course they have big spiky feathers on their heads, tails, and even little accent feathers.
I’ve rated it a 4/10 because the head has some y-seams that are a little tricky, the beak has some curved sewing, and the head is sewn on by hand. But the rest of the pieces are pretty straightforward.
You can sew the face with applique or use the embroidery files I’ve included. It’s small enough to fit in 4” x 4” hoops and still include a placement line to help you cut out the pattern. I hope you all enjoy it!

Free Pattern Friday! Pikachu Pouch

Hi everyone! Today’s freebie is sort of a mini project 😀 there’ll be a bigger one in two weeks ❤

I feel like this pattern is a bit of a tease because I’ve been asked to do a Pikachu plush but instead you guys get its backside, haha! I wanted to try something to dabble in the Corgi butt craze. I believe you can buy Pokemon butt themed keychains but this one is a full blown zipper pouch, complete with a vinyl pocket in the front for holding your ID card or train pass. The slot inside is large enough to hold some credit cards, cash, or coins. I’ve seen pouches of this style sold in Japan and I just had to give it a try.

The trickiest parts to sew is definitely the zipper, since it’s curved and sometimes it’s difficult to get the ends to look clean. However if you skipped the zipper it would still make a really cute plush. And the butt shape is pretty universal so it could work for lots of characters if you’re up for designing your own tails ❤
I hope you guys enjoy this weird experiment of mine! 😀

Free Pattern Friday! Eeveelution Blob Plush

Hi everybody!
I still hadn’t quite gotten over my Pokemon binge sewing from October so I had to delve into the Eeveelution pool just one more time with this new pattern 😀 It’s a simple blob-shaped style of plush, but I’ve dressed them up into all nine of the Eevee evolutions. Much like the previous eeveelution patterns I’ve done, these have a lot of little details to get through, but in the end they are so worth it!

All together they look like quite the set! They’re the perfect size for hanging around your desk and would make a great gift. But would look even better set up on a convention table. The base pattern itself would work well for lots of other animals, but because the eeveelutions have so many small details, I’ve set this one at 4/10 difficulty.
I hope you guys like it!
