New Shop Pattern! Chibi Human Doll Plush

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

As promised, I finally have a human doll pattern! It was probably my most requested pattern to add to my collection, so I hope you all enjoy how it turned out ❤ It took a lot of trial and error, but I’m really happy with the result.
It has some similarities in the body to the Anthro doll from last month, and that’s so the two can share clothes! This pattern comes with a casual clothes collection, featuring a cuffed sweater, dress, underwear, socks, shoes, and shorts. But they can also wear the cape and backpack from the Anthro Doll pattern.
It comes with loads of different hair styles too, including several styles for flat hair as well as a Mohawk and hair you can sew in locks. With these locks you can braid the hair into many really intricate looks. And to top it off there are 3 different ear styles, including a classic human ear, elf ears, and cat ears so you can make kitty people!

Like the anthro dolls, the hardest part of the plush is definitely the arms, though unfortunately that’s what helps them hang down instead of outward. But if you were able to tackle them with the anthro dolls then these won’t be much different.
One thing that might help is this pattern has some accompanying embroidery files you can purchase! The two styles of eyes are available together in one pack. The lashed eyes are a bit wider and can only fit 5” x 7” hoops, but the non-lashed eyes are just narrow enough to fit in 4” x 4” hoops. But the design pack also includes standalone eyes and faces in case you want to put them on a different plush.

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!

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! Tiny Dino Plush

prj091
I knew I had wanted to do a dinosaur plush for months now, and I’ve been obsessed with designing things with simple shapes. So those two together brings us this tubby little dino plush! It’s got a round, stubby little body with four tiny legs and lots of spikes going down the back.

If you’re not used to working with really tiny pieces it might be tricky, but it’s also good practice. Other than that it’s just got some darts and curved sewing, so I gave it 2/10 stars in difficulty. If tiny pieces are really difficult for you it might be closer to a 3/10. All in all a decent plush to make if you’re ready to move away from pillow-style soft toys.

I can see using this same pattern for a dragon or other similar animals 😀 Just add some wings on the back and you’re pretty much good to go!

Freebie Friday! The Tiny Totoro Tote

Prj023
It’s Miyazaki again! I’m sorry, I couldn’t help myself >w< I started out with this fun dotted print and thought it would look adorable with some white contrast bits. I was particularly excited about the idea of corner patch pockets on the tote, and while I was doing white contrasts, the idea to incorporate the chibi Totoro came to mind. While I love big Totoro like crazy, the Susuwatari and chibi Totoro are my favorite characters from My Neighbor Totoro I think x3 I actually have a plush of a chibi Totoro myself that I keep on my desk. So I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to put them on something. I think the finished tote is just the perfect size for a trip to the library or to the yarn store ^-^
