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!

Magikarp Hat Giveaway!

Magikarp Giveaway

Hi everyone! About a week back you all got me to over 2,000 subscribers! So exciting! I can’t thank you all enough for being such wonderful fans of this site 😀 To celebrate, I’m holding a little giveaway for this fun Magikarp hat!

UP FOR GRABS:
For this giveaway, you have a chance to win this slouchy Magikarp hat — a pokemon from the awesome video games and cartoon. It’s sized to fit unisex adults, and measures 23″ around — though it stretches to fit as much as 26″. It measures 19″ long from brim to tail tip, so it’s big and slouchy for a fun casual look. It’s made from polar fleece so it’s completely machine washable, though it’ll stay looking brand new much longer if you wash it on the gentle cycle and let it air dry (fleece air dries super fast). It includes all the little details too — like side fins, top and bottom fins, whiskers, tail fin, and big doofy eyes.

Fill out the form at the bottom of this post and submit! 😀

Huge Holiday Etsy Store Update!

As promised, my Etsy store has gone through a huge update in time for the holidays today! I finally used up the last of the fleece yardage that I purchased a while ago, and I’ve stocked up with some new designs as well as revamped some older ones.

Those that entered my Bat Hat Giveaway will be getting coupons to my store soon so they can run hog wild. But if you didn’t enter I still have something for you!
To everyone else, I offer you this!
Sale
From now until December 18th, you can get 10% off everything you buy in the store 😀 The 18th deadline is about when you can still expect Christmas delivery if you are in the United States, so hopefully with this coupon some of your Christmas shopping will be taken care of! If you’re not sure how to use coupon codes on Etsy, they have a handy and simple how-to here.

First up I’ve redone all of my fruit kitty designs >w< I admit they're a little silly, but I just think they're so colorful and pretty.

PastelPandaPurple2PastelPandaPink2PastelPandaMagenta2PastelPandaLime2PastelPandaLavender2PastelPandaBlue2PenguinVioletPenguinPurplePenguinPinkPenguinNavyPenguinLightPinkPenguinGreenPenguinGrayPenguinBluePenguinAquaPenguin Light Blue
Next up I used up a bunch of my scraps of different fleece to whip up these little panda and penguin hats 😀 I just love designs that use multiple colors like this, so I used up every scrap I had to make a plethora of pandas and penguins in a whole rainbow!

PunkBunnyPink4PunkBunnyPink6PunkBunnyPink9PunkBunnyPurple8PunkBunnyTeal7PunkBunnyGray3PunkKitty2Cyberbun2BatPurple3BatBlack3
After that I have my group of punk animal hats >w< These are the ones that I just love to decorate with loads of hardware and plaid. They include some punk bunnies both in extra-long ear version and a medium-length ear, a punk kitty (complete with piercings), and a few odd-man-out hats, like the bat hats in both black and purple, and a new cyberpunk bunny design x3

I’ve also restocked some steampunk-themed hats, including small earflap hats, extra-long bunny ear hats, and a new steampunk circus bunny hat!

Zombiekitty8Zombunny16Zombunny11InsanityKitty2
There are also new zombie animal hats! Including an earflap kitty hat, zombunny hats in medium and extra-long ear length, and a new concoction, the insanity kitty hat XD Which came about from some scraps of fleece I had that looked incredibly schizophrenic. I thought adding a creepy face like the one seen on my reversible backpack I posted earlier would bring it all together. And it looks downright chilling to me! >w<

PenguinPinkPenguinGrayPenguinBluePenguinAquaPenguinTurquoise
And lastly there are some new hoodies in stock! With the last scraps of colorful fleece I had I was able to whip up some penguins 😀 So there aren’t many sizes available, but I think you’ll really like how they turned out!

I hope you all enjoy the new items and maybe take advantage of the coupon! It might be some time before I have another update, but I definitely have things cooking in the background :B I think you’ll really be blown away by some of the items I’ll be finishing next year!

Etsy Store Update!

At the moment I’m preparing to attend an anime convention called Metrocon in July, for the next few weeks I’ll be working on making some products to sell there. Up until then I’ll have those new products on my Etsy store in case anyone in the net-o-sphere is interested :3



PunkBunnyTeal
First is a teal version of my Punk Bunny Hat, which got everyone’s attention on DeviantArt last year by being a daily Deviation XD of course everyone wanted one and I was in barely any position to make them as I was working on books at the time. I finally got around to making some more, albeit in a different color scheme, that way I could use up some scrap plaid fabric I had 😀



Zombunny9
Next is just a little Zombie Bunny (Zombunny) hat that I made with some extra olive green fleece I had :B It’s a very simple design without all the blood and guts of other zombies, but it’s one of my favorites nonetheless >w<



Fox2
Next is a very cute Fox Hoodie that I whipped up from scraps of orange and white fleece. Unfortunately I didn’t have much fabric so I could only make the one. It features black hand mitts, an adorable fox face, and attached ears.



Backpack9Backpack8Backpack5
And up last is a bag that’s based off of one of the projects from Sewing Stylish Handbags. It’s arguably one of the most unusual projects from the book xB But in the book you can find a pattern for a reversible creature bag just like this. I modified the pattern to make one side of the bag into a Zombie Kitty and the reverse side into a Killer Rabbit (a la Monty Python and the Holy Grail). The bright red eyes and drooling mouths are particularly weird and creepy, so I suggest this bag is definitely not for the faint of heart or those with grown-up tastes XD The middle reversible zipper is both the opening for the bag and the mouth of your creature, and the straps clip on with hook rings so you can remove the them when you turn the bag right side out to reveal your new character.



That’s all I have to show off now! I’ll be getting back to work and hopefully have another update for you soon! 😀
