New Shop Pattern! Woodland Witches Anthro Dolls

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

I’ve gotten a lot of requests for more dolls, so before I jump into humans I thought I’d try my own version of an Anthropomorphic doll 🙂 It’s similar to the standing animal plush I did previously, but these are little less chibi and have longer limbs and a more clearly defined neck. The shape of the head has a more classic animal shape than the big round heads that I usually do.
Their longer silhouette means they look very nice dressed up, so for this first batch I thought I’d go with a witchy theme! The pattern includes templates to make a hooded cape, witch’s hat, and a leaf backpack. It also has templates for little felt details like flowers, wings, and leaves.
With that said, you can use the clothes from this pattern for the standing animal as well! Though the hoodie from the standing animal pattern is for smaller arms, so that’s a bit of a tight fit.

The hardest part of the plush is definitely the arms, though unfortunately that’s what helps them hang down instead of stick outward. So if you didn’t have a lot of trouble with the arms on the standing plush pattern, then this one won’t be too bad for you. All in all, I get a lot of requests for more plushies that are almost completely machine-sewn, which made the arms difficult. But on the bright side it means it comes together a lot faster once you get the hang of it!

One thing that might help is this pattern has some accompanying embroidery files you can purchase! All 4 eye designs are available together in a pack. The design pack comes with a files suited specifically for the plush and also standalone files that you can use for other plushies should you choose. The ones meant for the plush can fit either on a 4×4 hoop (if you’re doing a fox style plush with a muzzle), or a 5×7 hoop (if you’re doing a full face like the cat).

To celebrate its launch, the pattern will be 30% off for the first weekend, and the embroidery files will be 50% off! I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!

New Shop Pattern! Plush Backpack

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

I’ve had a lot of requests for a plush backpack, so with con season coming in strong and back-to-school after that, I finally took my first crack at it! It was quite involved to make, but lots of fun, so I hope you all like what you see! The templates cover how to make a classic fox, cat, or rabbit. The ears and tails are really cute and detailed so you’re sure to make an interesting character no matter what animal you go with. The bodies are designed so they look like they’re clinging to your back and looking off to the side.

Like most plush backpacks, the storage size inside isn’t huge, but I optimized the shapes the best I could to get the most storage possible 😀 The plush comes in two sizes and each has a pocket that is held closed with a zipper on the belly. The small has a 5½” x 8½” pocket — enough to hold a phone and a few essentials (like keys and a wallet). It would work great as a purse or a child’s backpack. While the large has an 8” x 12” pocket – enough to hold a standard tablet! The large plush clocks in at about 23” long, so it’s quite the statement piece ❤ It would be great for a convention or making some very impressive commissions. You can see them in action on my Instagram here: Large size & small size.

It’s a slightly harder pattern, since it combines all the difficulties of making plush and a backpack, but the instructions are extra detailed and chock-full of information to help alleviate any issues 🙂 Just know that it will take longer because it is so large.

One thing that might help is this pattern has some accompanying embroidery files you can purchase! Both the paw and eye designs are available to buy. The design pack comes with a files suited specifically for the backpack and also standalone files that you can use for other plushies should you choose. The ones meant specifically for the backpack all fit within a 4″ x 4″ embroidery hoop too 😀

To celebrate the launch they will be on special for the next 3 days! The backpack pattern will be 30% off and the embroidery designs will be 50% off ❤ I hope you guys will take a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!
