New Shop Pattern! Jellyfish Plush

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

A few months back I introduced an octopus pattern that came with extra parts for several animal variations, and since then I’ve had the nagging idea to do other sea creatures. The first to come to mind was a jellyfish. This one in particular is a slight diversion from the typical looking jellyfish, as it has big flowy ruffles and wide tentacles. It’s more inspired by Clara from the adorable anime Princess Jellyfish. So it is an atypical pattern in that sense, but it was kind of a guilty pleasure for me and I couldn’t help but want to bring it to life 🙂

It was free to the first 50 people to download ♥ So I hope you all enjoy your copies!
But for everyone else I’ll be offering it at 50% off for the first week as part of the launch special. I hope you’ll give it a look!

Store Update! Aviator Hats Are Back!

Hello everyone!

After taking another short break for book writing, I’m happy to say that my Etsy store has another update!

The faux suede steampunk aviator caps are back in stock 😀 with a few new custom variations to choose from. These hats were a big hit last year when I debuted them during a giveaway, and I’ve been working hard to bring them back as soon as I could ^-^

Collection

Most of the original color choices are back, along with a few new colors including light gray and red. All of the original ear choices also apply, including cat, fox, and rabbit. But now there is also a deer ear option which comes with little plush antlers! You could also opt to have the antlers on a rabbit hat to make it a jackalope x3

Collection

Also in the update are some of my hoodie designs brought back as made-to-order options. While I am prepping for my attendance to Metrocon in June, it’s still a ways away so I thought I’d offer up these listings for purchase until I have to focus on Metrocon more ^-^ I’ll likely have these listings up for about a month or two until I have to focus on the convention entirely and then I’ll have to bring them down until everything blows over.

I hope you all enjoy the new creations! I’ll be here taking orders, prepping for the con, and designing some new free patterns for the blog in between ^-~ See you next time!

Black Friday Weekend Sale & Store Update!

I hope all of my American friends had a fantastic Thanksgiving!

I’m over here taking advantage of some Black Friday fabric deals online ^w^ and I thought I would pass the favor along to all of you as well! So this weekend I’m running a 15% off everything in the store sale 😀 no minimum purchase required! Just use store code BF2014 from now until November 30th

BF2014

And to help facilitate your holiday shopping, my store also got another little plush update! As mentioned last time, this week’s update is filled with a collection of red plushies, ranging from fuchsia to magenta to burgundy ^0^

Plush1127

First up, there are loads more punk bunnies in fuchsia, hot pink, and bright red. Each one has its own kind of ear detail – the red has tiger stripes while the other colors have different variations of plaid. So you can pick the plaid that you like the most 😀

After that are more ninja bunnies, but this time in fuchsia instead of violet. As before, she has a little shuriken in one hand and a blinged out katana on her back. There are also some new pink and fuchsia narwhals and octopi as always, as well as some new robots. But I’m most excited about the character in dark red: the steampunk circus bunny. She’s based off of a bunny hat design I had done previously with black and white stripe details and lace trim – and the whole thing is brought to life in plush form! I think her sweet little face really evokes the look of a poor little bunny that’s run off to join a very Jules Vernean circus.

As for what to look out for next, be prepared for some gray plushies ^-^ Most likely a lot more quirky designs from my big-headed sitting plush collection. I’ll see you all then!

Store Update – Purple & Yellow Plushies!

Hello again everyone!
My Etsy store got another update today ^-^ As promised, this time around is a group of purple and yellow plushies. There are a lot of rehashes of previous characters, but a few new creatures managed to sneak in too 😀

Plush1114

Like with other updates there are some narwhals and octopi in yellow and purple as well as another little robot in a butter yellow. There are also more punk bunnies in purple now with matching Union Jack details on their ears. A new character I’m happy to show off is a little violet-colored ninja bunny! Not only does she have a little shuriken in her hand, but a katana on her back as well – blinged out with beads, decoden style! I had made a group of girly ninjas like this in amigurumi form before, so I was so glad to get to create it in minky plush form as well 😀

And lastly is the batch of Puff Monsters ^-^ This will probably be the last batch of Puff Monsters you’ll see, so if one of them has caught your eye, be sure to snatch him/her up before they’re all gone! There’s an annoyed puff with his caffeine fix, a little witch puff complete with broom, and another dapper puff with a fluffy mustache. I think he might be my favorite so far – just love that little bowler hat x3 Just remember from here on out I’ll just be doing original designs. It was a ton of fun getting to collaborate with Bianca Roman-Stumpff ^0^ And I’ll see if making more in the future is in the cards based on how her fans react.

As for what’s next, you can expect to see a collection in the red spectrum – everything from burgundy to fuchsia to hot pink. I’m actually moving in a week or so — not far, just a few towns north — so you might see my Etsy store go on a short vacation, but if all goes according to plan I shouldn’t be held up too badly. See you then!

Store Update – Blue Plushies!

Hello all and happy Halloween!

I’m back with yet another update 😀 As I mentioned, this time I worked on some blue plushies in a lot of the same designs as before but with a few new characters thrown in.

Plush1030

As before, we’ve got narwhals, an octopus, and the punk bunnies have made a triumphant return! I used up lots of scraps of blue plaid to make this batch, and for the shades of blue where I didn’t have matching plaid, I made ragged-edged Union Jack stripes going through their ears instead. As always, they have that renegade angry face with skull bunny tattoos on the backs of their ears x3

In the Puff Monster camp I’ve got 5 new creations this time, so I tried out some of Bianca Roman-Stumpff’s designs that I’ve been itching to implement. Namely, we’ve got a very angry puff, a dapper puff, a puff with cat-eye glasses named Tiger Lily (I’m sure you won’t have to wonder which one that one is), and a very special puff that has a jetpack! Check out the one with the purple eyes and backpack straps, you’ll see she has a rocket pack strapped on, complete with flames and ready for adventure x3

And lastly I have some newcomers! A squadron of robot plushies, complete with little audio receptors (ears) and radio wave receptors (antennae) :B Each one has little claw arms and some little motif on the front – either a star or a pixilated heart. Like the punk bunnies, they also have poly beads in their bottom to help them sit on their own. These were some of my favorites to make, so I hope you enjoy all the variations!

I’m back to work then! If nothing slows me down, the next update should be a collection of yellow and purple plushies ^0^ See you then!

Store Update – Olive & Orange Plushies!

Hi everyone!
I’m back with another store update and lots more plushies! As promised, this round I used up the last of my green fabrics — particularly olive green — with some orange and mango thrown in.

Here’s the new gang!
Plush1017

In the olive camp we have some more Cthulhu plushies as well as one of my more popular characters, the Zombunny :B The huggable plush version has poor bitten ears and skull bunny markings while the pillow version has stitches all over. Both have that deadpan glare that always makes me laugh.

Next up are the orange versions of the narwhal and octopus plushies from last update as well as a new little fox character. Not doing a fox when I had orange fabric just seems like a waste x3 The other color I had was more of a yellow-orange, kind of mango color, so that got slipped in as well as this “golden” fox variation.
Lastly is a new group of Puff Monsters a la Bianca Roman-Stumpff. The last batch went over well with her fans, so I made more to see what they think!

Hoodies1017
Another group of items I have up are these one-of-a-kind bunny hoodies. A while back I accidentally ordered the wrong kind of fleece online and got sweatshirt fleece instead. Instead of returning it, I thought I would use it to experiment with some new hoodie ideas. My extra-long bunny ear hoodies have proven to be popular in the past, so I took that plan and ran with it, making each hoodie a very particular style. The white gives off a bit of a mod/Lolita vibe, brown is more steampunk, black is a full-on biker jacket, and the red is more of a sleek moto jacket. Unfortunately because these were experiments I was only able to make them in one size – kind of a small/medium. But I had so much fun getting to try out new styles!

I hope you all like this week’s update! If all goes according to plan, the next update should be blue plushies! So stay tuned for lots of aqua, turquoise, and teal next time 😀
