New Shop Pattern! Plague Doctor Plush

Hi everyone!
I’ve got a new plush pattern I’ve added to my shop!

This creepy classic plague doctor is a plush I wanted to do since last year ❤ It looks like others had it in mind too, including an awesome Plague Birb from CreepyKawaii and this version from Squishable. The timing is certainly a little on-the-nose considering all the trouble we’re dealing with, but hopefully this cute version of a medieval doctor will put a fun spin on everyone’s Halloween.

Just like the classic doctor, this plush features a long bird-like face. It’s just like the mask that the medieval doctors used to stuff sweet smelling herbs and flowers in the hopes of avoiding illness by keeping bad smells away. It also has a double-breasted coat, capelet with a hood or collar, and a tall hat.

While designing these cuties, I had convinced myself that this doctor must be chubby for maximum silliness. So you’ll find included is a simple body that is round and tubby. But I also thought the doctor would look good as an expansion to my standard human doll pattern — so I included both! So if you have my Chibi Human or Merpeople pattern you’re all set, and if you don’t, you can make a chubby doctor instead! ❤ You’ll find the instructions for the mask and clothes are similar for both, it’s just the sizes that differ a little.

The patterns come with applique templates for some simple face options and for the coat buttons. Embroidery is also included for a few more detailed mask designs.

To celebrate the launch, the new pattern will be 30% off from now through Halloween on the 31st! Since some might be staying home for the holiday, I thought I’d stretch the sale through the end of the month in case it helps some keep busy. And for extra Halloween fun, all my spooky patterns will be also be 30% off, and the rest of the shop will be 20% off! I hope you’ll give the new doctor a look! And if you snagged a copy of the new pattern, I hope you enjoy it!

New Shop Pattern & Sale! Anthro Dragon Plush

Hi everyone!
I’ve got a new plush pattern I’ve added to my shop!

I’ve been getting requests lately for more anthropomorphic animals like the woodland animals I did a few years back. So while I hope to dig into making birds, unicorns, bats, and the like, I thought what better animal to start with than a dragon!

It’s a 2-legged standing doll version of one of my dragons, sized in proportion with my other human and animal dolls. So if you’re familiar with putting those together, this pattern will have a lot of similarities. As usual with my dragon patterns, you’ll find it has tons of wing, horn, and spike details you can mix and match for different looks. And of course, being dolls, they need some cute clothes! For this group I thought a pirate theme with a steampunk twist would be fun. So you’ll find instructions for a fun pirate coat, corset, tricorn hat, utility belt, goggles, and a staple skirt and pants.

If you’d like to dress the dragons in other doll clothes, upper body clothes fit the best (due to the tail causing wider hips). For example this cloak from the Fairy Expansion Pack ♥


Sadly due to the unique details like the horns, wings, and thick tail, they can’t wear all of the other doll clothes available. You’ll have the best luck with clothes that fit around the neck and shoulders, like the vests and cloaks from the Fairy Expansion Pack. That’s why this pattern includes some basic clothes so you can adapt them to suit your own designs ♥

As always, the sewing pattern contains applique templates to make the dragon faces by hand or regular sewing machine. You can also applique some of the details on the clothing, though the ones in the samples have machine embroidered details. If you wanted to try painting or hand-embroidering the details, I’ve included those templates so you have that option <3. If you do have an embroidery machine, you’ll find those files sold separately. Or you could also use the Floppy Dragon embroidery files since they have similar head shapes.

To celebrate the launch, the new pattern will be 30% off from now through next Wednesday, the 26th. Meanwhile the embroidery will be 50% off. All other dragon patterns will be 20% off, the rest of the shop will be 10% off. I hope you’ll give them a look! And if you snagged a copy of the new pattern, I hope you enjoy it!
