Free Pattern Friday! Shark Plush

Hi everyone!
A bit of a simpler pattern today, which should be nice for beginners! It’s a highly-requested partner to the dolphin and narwhal plush I made previously 😀 A cute baby shark!
It has just a few pattern pieces like the ones before it and comes together quickly. I rated it a 2/10 — the most difficult part is probably the belly, since it comes to a point in the back of the tail like a gusset. But it’s not terribly hard to do. So if you’re a beginner this would be a good way to get acquainted with gussets. If you’ve never sewn anything curved before this might feel more like a 3/10.
The applique templates include a classic round eye, a big toothy grin, and silly anime-style eyes so you can make a tsundere shark just like the internet meme :3 Each version has embroidery files included as well – with the teeth done in applique. All fit on 4” x 4” hoops so no one is left out!

Would you like to see how I designed this pattern? You can support me on Patreon for as little as $1 and get behind-the-scenes details!

Spring sale!

Hey everyone!
I just wanted to pop in and mention I’m having a Spring sale! I’ve had some requests to run one, so I figure people have been working on their Easter gifts or just picking up more sewing with the change in season ❤ Everything in my store is 15% off and all of my newest items are 25% off! That includes everything that’s a year old or younger 🙂 It also includes the Dragon Backpack Plush from last week, so you have a second chance to grab it at a discount!

I hope this might help some of your sewing prep!

Free Pattern Friday! Kero-chan & Suppi Plush

Hi everybody!
As some long-time fans may know, I have made some Cardcaptor Sakura patterns in the past 😀 And since the new series has been out I’ve gotten a lot of requests to make these little guys ❤ So I finally gave it a go! With this one pattern you can make either Kero-chan or Suppi! Ready to go on card capturing adventures.

They both have huge ears and cute little faces as well as puffy wings and floppy bodies that can sit up if you put beans in their bottom. Sewing the arms, wings, and tail gets a little crowded when doing the body, so I rated this one a 4/10 in difficulty. But there’s a tip in the instructions to help you through it ♥ The ears sewn partially into the head darts accounts for the rating too, but you could also just fold the ears instead.

You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. Both faces are small enough to sew entirely in a 4" x 4" hoop so no one is left out!

Free Pattern Friday! Moogle Plush

Hi everyone! Kupo!

After I made a Chocobo pattern back in June of last year, I had an overwhelming slew of requests to make a Moogle. How could I say no when Final Fantasy is pretty much my favorite video game franchise? This little guy has all the classic Moogle features, a big red pom pom, tiny wings, smiling eyes, and of course a big red nose. I also love that they have pudgy little bellies and fluffy neck ruffs too ♥

It has a lot of little pieces that are sewn on by hand, like the wings and arms. Luckily the neck ruff helps cover any mistakes with the neck if it gives you a tough time. But overall I gave it a 3/10 in difficulty.

You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. The face is small enough to sew entirely in a 4″ x 4″ hoop so no one is left out!
I hope all you Final Fantasy fans like it!

Embroidery catch-up and a sale!

Hi everyone!
Those of you with embroidery machines will hopefully be pleased with today’s news ♥ It’s sort of my New Year’s resolution this year to get caught up on embroidery files for my Etsy patterns. Since we’re more than a month into 2019 it seems like a good time to touch base and show how that’s been going!



My Floppy Dragon, Celestial Fox & Hare, and Chubby Dragon patterns all have new embroidery files!
Like with previous embroidery packs, these listings contain all the files you need to replace the applique in the pattern as well as a set of different sizes in case you want to use the eyes and motifs for a different project. This way you don’t absolutely need the pattern to use the embroidery and vice-versa.
From today until Wednesday, February 13th, the new embroidery files will be 50% off! And their partner patterns will be 30% off 😀
I hope this makes everyone’s sewing a little easier!

Meanwhile I’ve got to get back to embroidering ;P I’ve got a bunch more to catch up on!

Free Pattern Friday! Penguin Plush

Hey everyone!

I technically already created a penguin plush back in March of 2015 when I did Gunter from Adventure Time. But I was still getting requests for a penguin, haha! 😀 So I figured I should tackle a more classic penguin look, possibly with a different pose? Which is where my friend had the idea to make it look like it’s sliding on its belly! The idea seemed too cute to pass up ❤

The pattern itself doesn’t have a lot of pieces, so the penguins come together rather quickly 😀 The most difficult part is sewing the bottom, as there are some curves involved. But if you take it slow it’s not quite so bad. Altogether I’d call it a 3/10 in difficulty.

You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. The version of the face which includes applique for the top point needs a 5” x 7” hoop. But I’ve also included an amended 4” x 4” version without the applique and blush marks which still gets the job done 😀 I hope you all like it!

2018 Year in Review!

Hi everyone!
I hope you’re all have a great season as this year comes to a close ❤ We’re coming up on the blog being 5 years old now! I can’t believe how much it’s grown over this time, and I can’t wait to see how it progresses.
In the meantime, I thought I would make a top ten list of the most popular posts from this year as a fun look back. And maybe if you’re new to the site or missed a post you’ll see something you didn’t know about!

The sloth plush made it to #1! I love this little guy — it has so much character in such a simple body ♥

My favorite part of the year was definitely finally introducing embroidery designs into my free patterns! Although it’s a lot of work, it was very satisfying to get to see the designs come together in thread. It’s my 2019 resolution to get completely caught up with the most popular past designs!
I was surprised that the octopus amigurumi made it to the list ❤ I know there are a lot of other great amigurumi pattern-makers out there, so I can’t really compete. But I find illustrating the charts to be challenging and fun. And I will be the first to admit I have a yarn-buying problem, so finding uses for it is always good 😀
I was also surprised that the Hooded Cowl made it onto the list 🙂 I always enjoy taking a break from plush-making for some cute accessories. I have some ideas for more Halloween-themed wearables next year, hopefully they’ll get just as much love!
Thank you for all the amazing suggestions for patterns over the year! I’ve heard a lot of really great ones, like a shark, T-rex, seal, alpaca, etc. I’m always open to hear suggestions though, so don’t be afraid to mention something in the comments. Thank you all so much for being fans of my blog and my work! I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for all of you! I hope you enjoy what’s to come in 2019!
