Free (Crochet) Pattern Friday! Squid Amigurumi

I’m back with another crochet pattern! For you stitchers out there I made a 3rd little sea creature for our jellyfish and octopus friends 🙂 These squids have the classic pointed head with two little side fins (done with half-double and double crochet). Six little small tentacles and two large tentacles finish off the bottom. The pattern contains templates for stitching on angry or happy faces plus cute contrast spots, but you could use safety eyes as well.

And just like the other crochet patterns so far, you can make this with just about 100 yards of yarn. I used DK personally, but bulky yarn looks great too. It really is a catch-all kind of design because it looks good in just about any color. It’s a great use for leftovers — I used up a ton of mine this way ♥. The instructions contain both an illustrated chart and written instructions in case you prefer to follow one over the other.

I hope you all enjoy it!

Free (Crochet) Pattern Friday! Jellyfish Amigurumi

I’m back with another crochet pattern! For you stitchers out there I did a variation on the octopus pattern to give him a little friend 🙂 These jellyfishes have the octopus body with added frills and curly tentacles. As an extra accessory, you can make them bows or a fun little flower!
Just like the octopus, it can be made with about 100 yds. Of DK or light worsted yarn. Or you could size up to bulky yarn for a larger plush. And like the octopus, it has both charts and written instructions.
I hope you all enjoy it!

Free (Crochet) Pattern Friday! Octopus Amigurumi

A little something different today ❤

I don’t make a big show of it, but I also love to crochet 😀 I find it’s a great relaxing activity, especially one to do while watching shows and movies. I’ve been trying to work through my yarn stash (without a lot of luck, haha!) by doing some simple and classic animals that come together quickly. I don’t think they’re terribly complex so why not share them with all of you? ❤
This one is for a very basic octopus, with a big round head and 8 stubby tentacles. My boyfriend and I actually designed this together (he actually taught me to crochet <3) so he had the pattern on his Etsy store for a little while. But he’s since decided to shift to other projects so he said I could do whatever I wanted with it – isn’t he sweet?

The pattern goes over some basic crochet stitches in case you need a refresher, but my favorite part is that it has both a written instructions and an illustrated chart. I love the charts used in Japanese amigurumi patterns so I had to try out making one of my own. The pattern also has some cute accessories for your octopus, including a bowler hat and a bow 😀

I think anyone who’s maybe done 1 or 2 crochet projects before could easily tackle this little guy ❤ I found with DK or light worsted yarn it makes a perfect hand-held size and it only needs about 100 yds.
Being my first crochet pattern, I really hope you all enjoy it and find it easy to follow!

Black Friday Sale & New Chibi Dragon Plush Pattern!

Hi everybody! And Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends 😀

Starting today, I’m running a Thanksgiving/Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale all the way through to the 27th!

There are discounts on patterns as well as my ready-to-ship plushies & hats

And to kick it off, I’ve added a new steampunk critter pattern to the growing family!

An adorable chibi dragon ❤ Just like the other critters it has a cute big head and little body. But I’m a big fan of the side head spikes and the big accent horns. It also has all the other classic dragon features, like almond-shaped eyes, wings, claws, and a spiky dragon tail.

And of course no steampunk adventurer would be complete without accessories! It also comes with a separate .pdf showing how to make a matching scarf, top hat, goggles, eye patch, belt pouch, and even a removable vest with special hole for the wings to peek through.
Of course you can also use the pattern to make a classic dragon, and it still remains just as big and huggable.
I hope this sale will help you all with your holiday shopping and crafting!

New Shop Pattern! Cerberus Plush

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

Being deep into Halloween season, I thought it might be fun to introduce another scary creature pattern into the mix! This Cerberus was very highly requested while I was doing my legendary creatures collection in 2016, but it took more time to tackle than I was able to handle. So after more time to test and work with the pattern I was finally able to come up with something 🙂
It’s got the classic beanie-style body seen in a lot of my other patterns, and of course it has the infamous three dog heads. They’re shaped to be a little pit-bull like with tiny floppy ears, but of course much cuter! Needless to say I’m sure fans of Harry Potter will get a kick out of this adorable version of ‘Fluffy.’ I rated it a 4/10 since it’s not too terribly difficult, although getting all three heads together is certainly trickier than one.

As part of the launch special, this pattern will be 30% off this weekend! To those of you that snagged a copy, I hope you all enjoy it, and happy Halloween sewing!

New Shop Pattern! Goldfish Plush

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

After doing both an octopus & a jellyfish pattern, I felt the urge to add another creature to complete the sea-life theme. So I made this chubby little goldfish. I had gotten a few requests to do a goldfish before, and so this one has more of a kawaii feel than the Love Koi pair I did a while back.
And like with the octopus and jellyfish, of course I made animal variations! Mostly so I could make a catfish – yes, I went there 😛
As with the others, you have your choice of a cat, rabbit, panda, fox, or alpaca. And it has detailed side, dorsal, and tail fins that really make it look special. Unlike the octopus and jellyfish though, it needs a lot less hand-sewing so it comes together much more quickly.

To celebrate its launch, I’m offering the pattern for 50% off for the first week!
I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!

New Shop Pattern! Jellyfish Plush

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

A few months back I introduced an octopus pattern that came with extra parts for several animal variations, and since then I’ve had the nagging idea to do other sea creatures. The first to come to mind was a jellyfish. This one in particular is a slight diversion from the typical looking jellyfish, as it has big flowy ruffles and wide tentacles. It’s more inspired by Clara from the adorable anime Princess Jellyfish. So it is an atypical pattern in that sense, but it was kind of a guilty pleasure for me and I couldn’t help but want to bring it to life 🙂

It was free to the first 50 people to download ♥ So I hope you all enjoy your copies!
But for everyone else I’ll be offering it at 50% off for the first week as part of the launch special. I hope you’ll give it a look!
