New Shop Pattern! Fleece Fish Hat


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

I’ve had a lot of requests for the pattern I use to create my Magikarp hats. I try to save my fanart for my free patterns, so I thought this was a good opportunity to have fun and really expand the pattern into lots of different fish! The pattern gives you the instructions and templates to make a cute slouchy-style hat that’s very trendy lately, but the opening of the hat forms the mouth of a fish that’s glomming into your head ❤

With the pattern you can make a classic goldfish, shark (complete with sharp teeth!), betta fish, or koi fish (ideal for Magikarp). Though you can swap out the side, top, and tail fins to make lots of different combinations. The pattern is sized for heads between 13” and 25” around, so it runs the scope of sizes from babies to large adults.

To celebrate its launch, I’ll be offering it at 30% off (not including taxes and fees) for this weekend! I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!

Holiday Pattern Giveaway Winners!

Hi everyone!
I have the results for the Holiday Pattern Giveaway! There were over 1500 entries to the giveaway, so thank you to everyone that entered! Because the number was so huge, there might have been some issues getting the consolation prizes to everyone — so do let me know if there was an issue.
The prize emails were sent just a bit ago, so if you’re one of the winners here, be sure to check your spam folder 😀

Every winner received a free copy of my new standing plush pattern 🙂 While the top 5 got to choose some patterns from my collection!
The randomly chosen winners were:

In 1st place, who can choose 5 patterns, was Meriel Aho
In 2nd place, who can choose 4 patterns, was Naty S
In 3rd place, who can choose 3 patterns, was Christine N
In 4th place, who can choose 2 patterns, was Linda Echlin
In 5th place, who can choose 1 pattern, was Silvia
and lastly in 6th place, who got my free standing plush pattern, was Sego

Thank you to everyone who entered! I hope it’s a nice bright spot during your holiday season ♥
And if you didn’t win, be sure to check your email anyway because all the non-winning entries got a coupon for my new pattern!

It’s a set of 3 sweet animals in a really classic standing pose; a cat, rabbit, and panda. It’s a bit more complex to sew than it looks, much like my chibi patterns from before. This is because it’s almost entirely machine sewn. I gave it the same difficulty rating as the other, at 6/10 stars.
But since it does look rather simple, I thought I’d dress them up a bit in a cute matching hoodie! Between the two patterns, there’s loads of room for customization and creativity.

Black Friday Sale & New Chibi Dragon Plush Pattern!

Hi everybody! And Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends 😀

Starting today, I’m running a Thanksgiving/Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale all the way through to the 27th!

There are discounts on patterns as well as my ready-to-ship plushies & hats

And to kick it off, I’ve added a new steampunk critter pattern to the growing family!

An adorable chibi dragon ❤ Just like the other critters it has a cute big head and little body. But I’m a big fan of the side head spikes and the big accent horns. It also has all the other classic dragon features, like almond-shaped eyes, wings, claws, and a spiky dragon tail.

And of course no steampunk adventurer would be complete without accessories! It also comes with a separate .pdf showing how to make a matching scarf, top hat, goggles, eye patch, belt pouch, and even a removable vest with special hole for the wings to peek through.
Of course you can also use the pattern to make a classic dragon, and it still remains just as big and huggable.
I hope this sale will help you all with your holiday shopping and crafting!

New cut & sew fabrics! Dolphin, narwhal, & tiny dino

Hey everybody!
For those of you into Spoonflower, I thought I might share this newest update with you! Some of my other patterns have been given the cut & sew treatment like my bat plush from before.



In the new collection there’s my dolphin plush, narwhal plush, and tiny dino plush. Just like with the bat plush, all of the pieces you need are already printed on the Spoonflower fabric. So all you need to do is cut and sew – no extra fabric shopping or applique required!

Since these patterns weren’t quite as popular as the bat, I stuck with simple classic colors. You can buy them one fat quarter at a time, or buy a whole yard for all 4 of the colors in the collection. The instructions are just slightly different to accommodate the new fabric 🙂

I hope you guys enjoy them!

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!

New Shop Pattern! Goldfish Plush

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

After doing both an octopus & a jellyfish pattern, I felt the urge to add another creature to complete the sea-life theme. So I made this chubby little goldfish. I had gotten a few requests to do a goldfish before, and so this one has more of a kawaii feel than the Love Koi pair I did a while back.
And like with the octopus and jellyfish, of course I made animal variations! Mostly so I could make a catfish – yes, I went there 😛
As with the others, you have your choice of a cat, rabbit, panda, fox, or alpaca. And it has detailed side, dorsal, and tail fins that really make it look special. Unlike the octopus and jellyfish though, it needs a lot less hand-sewing so it comes together much more quickly.

To celebrate its launch, I’m offering the pattern for 50% off for the first week!
I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!

New Shop Pattern! Chubby Dragon Plush


Hi everyone!
I’ve got a new pattern that I’ve recently added to my Etsy shop 😀
Shortly after designing a second dragon plush for the legendary creature collection in 2016, I had the strongest urge to design fat, chubby dragon. I guess because the ones before had a more elegant look to them so I wanted something silly and goofy to offset the pair. So I spent some time honing the design and this is what I came up with!
I’m particularly happy with all the tiny details, like the top stitching on the belly, the little wings and ears, and even the little angry eyebrows on the blue one, haha 🙂 It’s a slightly bigger, more huggable size than my usual patterns at 8” tall and 8” wide, but it still goes together about as quickly as the other legendary creature patterns, so I rated it a 4/10 in difficulty. Hopefully you all will have fun stitching it up as well!

To celebrate its launch, I’m offering it at 50% off for the first week as part of the launch special. I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!
