I’ve got a new pattern that I’ve recently added to my Etsy shop 😀
I’ve gotten a lot of requests for a dog or cat pattern that people can use to make into their pets ❤ While there are loads of ways to tackle this, I got it in my head to try a more teddy-bear style plush with both a large head and body. I figure this would be a lot more huggable and squeezable. I think other styles would be just as fun, so perhaps I’ll try for those later 🙂
For now, I made this set of sweet animals that comes with templates for 4 different kinds of ears, 5 different tails, and 3 different faces. With all of those combined, it’s a lot of fun getting to put together your favorite pet. And to top it off, you can make them a matching collar or bandanna! (I'm unnaturally excited about the bandanna for some reason, haha!) I thought with the arms outstretched it looked perfect for a Maneki Neko. The construction is quite similar to the chibi plushies I’ve done in the past, but since the neck is so much wider for this one, it’s much easier to sew it by machine. All in all, this pattern has very little hand-sewing so it comes together quickly if you’re a seasoned stitcher.
To celebrate its launch, I’ll be offering it at 30% off for the first weekend! (not including taxes and fees) I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!
