New Crafting Challenge Pattern for June!

Hello everyone!

June is upon us! I can hardly believe it 😀 Prepping for Metrocon really made the time fly, but I’m super excited for when it arrives. Just so you all know, Metrocon is in Tampa, FL from June 11th-14th (Thursday-Sunday) this year. I’ll be in the Vendors’ Area, booth E11. It’s near the middle, but just a smidge back and to the left. There I’ll have loads of plushies, aviator caps, fleece hats, and hoodies, including some new designs I’ve been working on for the past few months. I hope if you’re in the area you’ll be able to stop by!

Anyhow, on to more pressing, plush-related business! For the month of June there’s a new punny food animal sewing pattern to earn:

A Beary Ice Cream Cone!

This of course is kind of a classic pun: beary = berry. I thought a cute little bear face on top of a waffle cone would be too cute to pass up so I combined the two. It’s that much more fun when you consider all the color combinations available – raspbeary, strawbeary, bluebeary, blackbeary, etc. 😀

Overall this one is pretty simple and relatively quick too. The troublesome parts are the ears and the scallop edging, which requires a bit of maneuvering in case you’re not used to it.

★ So how do you get this pattern? ★
If you’re NEW to this site, start off by signing up for email updates between now and June 30th (found in the submission box on the right sidebar above “My Books”). This will earn you the pattern for THIS MONTH ONLY.

If you have trouble signing up, you can check out more info at the main Monthly Crafting Challenge page, the FAQ, or by emailing me.

★ What if you’re NOT new to this site? ★
If you’re already signed up for email updates, that’s where the CHALLENGE comes in. You can also earn this pattern if you make one of the projects from this blog, my books, or my Etsy then email me or message the finished project to my Facebook.

★ Also, bonus! ★
For today only I’m offering both this pattern and the one from May when you sign up or send in project photos. After today though, the prize is just this guy 🙂 You’ll have to purchase the older pattern through my Etsy if you’re too late.
So don’t forget to check back next month for a new punny food animal plush pattern, and keep sending me photos of your amazing creations!

New Freebie Challenge for February!

Happy February everyone! I’ve had a busy January xD I was actually working on more books! And hopefully some that you’ll get to see very soon. Luckily things have slowed down a bit and I’m able to brainstorm for more stash-busting projects – maybe even get back into making some more hats or plushies! We’ll see how things pan out this month.

Either way, as a nice break from the craziness of the past month, there’s a new Monthly Crafting Challenge freebie on the horizon! As I mentioned last month, this month’s theme is punny food animals. January had an adorable Cinnabunny plush, and for February we have…

A Red Velvet Cupkit! (or, Red Vulpine Cupcake x3)

This one is a cross between a red velvet cupcake, and a red fox kit (kit being a baby fox of course ^-~). Being February with Valentine’s Day coming up, a lovely red cupcake just seemed fitting. It’s sized like a nice big over-sized cupcake, has scalloped frosting edging, perky little ears, and of course a sweet foxy face 😀 You could of course leave off the face and ears and have a darn good cupcake pattern of your own as well.

So how do you get this pattern?

If you haven’t already, start off by signing up for email updates (found in the submission box on the right sidebar above “My Books”). If you have trouble signing up, you can check out more info at the main Monthly Crafting Challenge page, the FAQ, or by emailing me.

So what if you’re already signed up for email alerts?

That’s where the challenge comes in. You can get this pattern if you make one of the projects from this blog, my books, or my Etsy then email me or message the finished project to my Facebook where I have a really awesome collection going of your creations! Keep sending me photos every month and you’ll get a new free pattern.

Also, bonus! for today only I’m offering both this pattern and the one from January when you sign up. After today though, the prize is just this guy 🙂 You’ll have to purchase the older pattern through my Etsy if you’re too late.
