Free Pattern Bonus! Owl Bear Plush

So, after making the owl plush last week I was reminded of some of the requests I received for an Owl Bear. It’s sort of a classic monster created for the game Dungeons & Dragons, but versions of it exist in other fantasy games like World of Warcraft too (Wildkin/Moonkin). Seeing some of the official and fan-created art for this creature – some of which is really cute! – I couldn’t help but want to try and make a quick variation using the new owl pattern 😀

So this little bonus pattern of sorts has the same body shape as the original owl, but with new clawed and winged arms, feet, bear ears, tail, and detailed face. It’s just about the pudgiest bear cub you’ve ever laid eyes on, haha! I hope some of you nerdy D&D fans out there might give it a try!

Free Pattern Friday! Owl Plush

Hi all! It’s only September, but I’m already getting excited for Halloween. As most sewists know, you have to start early for every occasion. So for this year I thought I’d make an owl plush! While making a cute one was a ton of fun, I just had to get into the Halloween spirit and make a creepy one as well 😛
So this pattern has the templates for both! It gives you some decent options to switch things up and make different faces and characters. But I think what I love most about the plush is how chubby and round it turned out :3 You just can’t help squeezing it!
So happy Halloween season everyone! I hope you enjoy it!

P.S. Stay tuned next week! This pattern inspired me to make a fun variation that’ll be a bonus pattern next Friday!

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!

Free Pattern Friday! Kitty Wallet

Hi everyone!
While I was revamping my old Kitty Purse pattern I thought it might be fun to make a matching wallet to go with it! It’s got the same cute simple kitty ear silhouette with appliqued whiskers that made the original purse so popular.

The inside of the wallet has slots for bills/receipts, 6 credit card pockets, and a pouch built in that’s big enough to hold your phone. But my favorite part is the zipper pouch hidden beneath the ears. It’s perfect for holding coins but also big enough to hold pens and pencils if that’s more your thing.
It goes perfectly with the Kitty Purse, but of course you could add a strap and make it a clutch as well. If you’re revisiting my old Kitty Purse pattern, maybe you’ll give this pattern a look too 😀 I hope you all like it!

Throwback Thursday! Kitty Purse

Hey everyone!
I decided to take a walk down memory lane today and revisit an old pattern of mine 😀 I released my Kitty Purse pattern back in October of 2014. It really took off as a popular pattern and is still one of my most-downloaded tutorials to this day. Back then my patterns weren’t quite as detailed and comprehensive as they are now, so I thought it might be fun to remake it in some new fabric and give the pattern the update it deserves!

So now not only does the pattern have tons more photos and illustrations, but it has some highly requested features as well. The top of the purse now has a zipper closure, and the strap now uses a more traditional strap adjuster rather than a buckle. At the time I made the original I just used what I had, but this time I could use some proper supplies 🙂 I hope you all like the update!

New Shop Pattern! Chubby Dragon Plush


Hi everyone!
I’ve got a new pattern that I’ve recently added to my Etsy shop 😀
Shortly after designing a second dragon plush for the legendary creature collection in 2016, I had the strongest urge to design fat, chubby dragon. I guess because the ones before had a more elegant look to them so I wanted something silly and goofy to offset the pair. So I spent some time honing the design and this is what I came up with!
I’m particularly happy with all the tiny details, like the top stitching on the belly, the little wings and ears, and even the little angry eyebrows on the blue one, haha 🙂 It’s a slightly bigger, more huggable size than my usual patterns at 8” tall and 8” wide, but it still goes together about as quickly as the other legendary creature patterns, so I rated it a 4/10 in difficulty. Hopefully you all will have fun stitching it up as well!

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

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 ♥
