New Shop Pattern! Dragon Backpack Plush

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

Last year I did plush backpack of a cute rabbit, fox, and cat. And you guys gave it such a welcome response – thank you so much! But the most common question was whether there would be a dragon version ❤ I’d be crazy not to make one! So here’s what I came up with!
It’s got the same major features as the original plush backpack, but with a cute dragon body instead. It comes with lots of different wings, horns, and spikes that you can change up depending on the look you want. I felt inspired to do a weather theme. So there’s a snow, rain, wind, and lightning dragon — but they really work together in whatever combination you like ♥

As before, it comes in two sizes. The small is a more typical size that fits a few essentials like your phone, wallet, and keys. While the large is an epic statement piece that can fit a whole tablet!
It is a slightly harder pattern since it combines both plush-making and bag-making. Even more so because for this dragon version I included how to make a secret (optional) hidden tail pocket! If you’re familiar with using invisible zippers you can tackle this addition 🙂 It’s sure to blow people’s minds when they see it! But know that it’s a tricky technique so be sure that you’re confident if you try it. If you skip it the plush comes together just the same.

If you feel intimidated by the whole thing, it might help to know I’m working on a simpler plush backpack without all the extra details for the future ♥ So stay tuned for that if you’d prefer a more basic version 😀


One thing that might help make the project easier is the accompanying embroidery files that are available for purchase as well 😀 It has two different eye styles, available for both the small and large backpack. In addition there’s a set of other sizes for use with different projects should you want to. All the included files fit within a 4” x 4” embroidery hoop so all sizes are covered.

To celebrate its launch, the pattern will be at 30% off for the first weekend — from now until April 1st (no fools here ♥)! And the embroidery will be 50% off! I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy 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!

New Shop Pattern! Stacking Dragon Plush ♥

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

After releasing the loaf-style Lion, Tiger, & Bear stacking plushies last year in April, I had a bunch of requests to do a dragon version, so here it is! I had the toughest time deciding which face I liked, and I ended up making a kitty dragon version because in the sketches it was just too cute!
Just like the last one, it has an interesting shape in that the arms and legs are splayed out in front instead of to the side. A lot of y-seams are involved in making it, but once you get the hang of the steps it actually goes rather fast.

One thing that might help is the accompanying embroidery files that are available for purchase as well 😀 It has two different faces, one for the more angular classic dragon eyes, and one for the snarky side eyes. The listing comes with the separate eyes and faces at tons of different sizes so you can use them for this plush or a different project entirely.

To celebrate its launch, the pattern will be at 30% off for the first weekend! And the embroidery will be 50% off! I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!

Free Pattern Friday! Hooded Cowl

Hi everybody!
With Halloween coming I couldn’t resist the urge to make something costume related, so while this isn’t a plush I hope you all might still enjoy it! It’s a cozy hooded cowl dressed up either like a dragon or a unicorn. Paired with a warm coat or a fuzzy sweater I think it would be the perfect thing to keep you cozy and cute while trick-or-treating.

It includes sizes from baby up to large adult so everyone in the family can have one! And if you’re not into the hooded cowl look, you can use the dragon or unicorn parts for a hoodie or scoodie or anything else with a hood! It’s hard not to love the look of those dragon spikes or the big blooming flowers around the unicorn horn.

The cowl on its own is pretty simple and would be great for someone new to sewing that hasn’t made a lot of clothes yet. It’s also a good way to practice sewing buttonholes. All of the dragon and unicorn details give it a little extra time and difficulty, so I rated it a 3/10.

I hope it might help some of you with your autumn sewing!

New Shop Item & Sale! Fairy Tale Collection Embroidery!

Hey everyone!
For those of you with embroidery machines, I’m slowly but surely adding more files for my paid patterns for sale 😀 For this next update I thought I should tackle my most popular patterns – the ones in my Fairy Tale Collection. That includes the Laying Dragon, Sitting Dragon, Peryton, Unicorn/Pegasus, Phoenix, and Griffin.

Just like with my other files so far, these bundles include the embroidery to use specifically with the partner pattern along with instructions. And they include standalone eye files in 7 sizes that you can use them with other projects. They’re also useful if you only have a 4” x 4” embroidery hoop and want to embroider the eyes separately. The main point is you don’t have to buy the pattern to use the embroidery and vice versa ❤

The files are bundled together at a discount just like the sewing patterns 😀 And all the files are 50% off for this weekend, so you have your pick! In addition, the partner patterns are 30% off so you can buy them together if this is your first time seeing them. I hope these new files help with your plush-making!

Etsy Birthday Sale! Plus new dragon eye embroidery!

Hi everyone!
I just wanted to put in a quick word to mention Etsy’s birthday sale this week! It runs from the 18th to the 22nd, and Etsy sellers can choose to participate or not. So you might want to check any favorite sellers of yours to see if they’re also having a sale!


As for me, my whole shop is 10% off! And all of my dragon items are 20% off! That’s to celebrate my first embroidery design for sale ❤


I wanted to keep things super simple when starting to sell embroidery, so the first file I have available is for my Chibi Dragon pattern. But the bonus is you can use it for any other project you want! When you purchase the design, it comes with files both meant to work specifically with the Chibi Dragon (with pattern guidelines and instructions), but also a set of 6 sizes that are just the eyes and nostril slits. With 6 sizes to choose from you can use them for any other dragon projects (or monsters, or whatever have you!). And they’re all under 99mm so they’re sure to fit 4″ x 4″ embroidery hoops.
So in the end, you don’t need the Chibi Dragon pattern to use the embroidery and vice versa 🙂 For this sale week the new embroidery will be 50% off! And more embroidery files are definitely coming in the future ♥ I just wanted to start small for the first one.
I hope you all enjoy! And thank you ♥

Update! More embroidery files!

Hey everybody!
I’ve gone back and revisited my most popular older patterns to create new embroidery files for them 🙂 I realize they’ve been in demand for quite some time, so I hope you’ll forgive me for taking so long!
I went with my most popular free patterns based on comments and number of downloads, and the pages are now updated to include the file pack.

The new additions are:
• The bat plush of course! Which now includes both a round-eyed face with nose and the lashed-eye face with mouth and fangs. Both faces need at least 5×7 hoops.
• The Totoro plush, which includes both the face and the belly markings — both of which need 5×7 hoops.
• The Haku dragon scarf, which also needs a 5×7 hoop.
• And the Night Fury plush, which includes both the face and the tail design. The face also needs a 5×7 hoop, but the tail design can fit on a 4×4 🙂

I’m slowly but surely working backwards to try and offer embroidery files for what’s in most demand ❤ I’ve had a lot of suggestions for the Owl Plush, Kitty Bean, and Witch Kitty, but please do let me know what you’d like to see in the comments!
