New Product! Cut & Sew Bat Plush

Hey everyone!
Over the last few months I’ve really been getting into Spoonflower – the awesome service where you can get custom-printed fabric. I’ve been using them a lot for custom gifts for friends and family, and I thought I’d try them out to make a custom-printed version of my popular bat plush pattern. This way the fabric itself has a lot of fun details, and the faces are printed right on so it’s super fast to sew up! This is what resulted!

Their custom-printed minky produces really bright and crisp colors, even after washing 🙂 The classic darker colors like the gray and purple still have some white show up in the seams, but it tends to make the finished product look weathered in a cute kind of way. But if that’s not your thing, the lighter pastel ones don’t have that issue at all.

I created 12 different designs — you can check them out by clicking the corresponding thumbnails below. The bats need a fat quarter of minky or fleece to fit all the pieces, but that means if you buy a whole yard you get 4 bats! So you’ll find there are some combination options that let you buy a sampler of 4 bats at once.

The original instructions are changed just slightly to accommodate the fabric, and you can find them here: https://cholyknight.com/bat-plush/. I hope you guys like the options, and of course let me know if you’re interested in any other designs or prints! These were super fun to make and put together ♥

Sew Baby! My Latest Book is Released!

Hello everyone! I’m so excited! My latest book, Sew Baby came out this weekend! It’s one of the books I worked so ardently on last year, and I’m super proud to finally have it out in stores for you all to buy!

If you are familiar with my work, you know that I love making cute and adorable accessories so working on a book for babies was a natural progression. However, I still put in lots of blood, sweat, and tears into this book, so I hope you all enjoy what you see! I worked on creating loads of home décor projects, accessories, toys, and practicalities, all while imbuing my style of simple kawaii cuteness into them.

I found that as I worked on these projects, I had a goal where I wanted to highlight every loveable and gentle creature I could imagine, from kitty cats to red pandas, elephants to monkeys, and puppies to dragons. I think kind and gentle animals not only reflect the sweetness of babies, but the characters make these projects perfect for unisex gifts. A boy looks just as adorable in a panda hat as a girl, so you literally have a whole menagerie of projects to choose from 😀

Beyond that, seeing sweet little baby faces with baby animals would warm anyone’s heart. It makes me think of babies and kitties playing together, or of that quintessential boy and his dog vibe. Together, I see that animal as both a lifelong friend and a protector, and I think that image is what my muse was as I created for this book. I hope it inspires you as much as I was inspired, and you take a look if you have a special baby in your life that needs a perfect gift or would you would just like to surround with smiling faces! ^-^
