Doll Pattern Sale! and New Witch Doll Expansion Pack ♥

Hi everyone!
I’ve got a new plush clothing pattern I’ve added to my shop!

With Halloween creeping up on us, I just couldn’t help myself and I did an expansion pack filled with cute witchy clothes! Despite doing other witchy projects in the past, I just didn’t get my fill — I kept coming up with more ideas as the months went by, haha!
In this pack you’ll find a few new face and hair templates, but the real star is a set of elegant dresses that would work nicely whether your doll is a good witch or a bad witch 😉 They have big flowy skirts, tiny ruffles, and intricate collars and other details. And of course there are classic witch hats too, as well as a few variations on the crown and brim shape to keep things interesting.

The new hair designs work best with my humanoid patterns, like the Chibi Human, Merpeople, or Centaur. But the clothes will fit any of my standing doll patterns, like the Anthro Doll, new Anthro Dragon, or even the free Bat & Cat Girl from last year! It comes with lots of tips for how to adapt the dresses to fit wings and tails.
The expansion pack comes with applique templates for the new hair designs as well as how to applique witchy boots onto several shapes of legs. These applique templates are perfect if you sew by hand or a regular sewing machine. If you have an embroidery machine, there are embroidery files available sold separately.

To celebrate the launch, the new pattern will be 30% off from now through next Wednesday, the 23rd. Meanwhile the embroidery will be 50% off. All other doll patterns will be 20% off, the rest of the shop will be 10% off. I hope you’ll give them a look! And if you snagged a copy of the new pattern, I hope you enjoy it!

Freebie Friday! The Gothic Lolita Purse

Even though I’ve already done a Gothic Lolita inspired bag earlier, I’ve got to say there are dozens more Lolita styles I’d like to try before saying I’ve touched on them all >w< so here’s another one! Rather than a large satchel like the previous project, this one is more of a dainty-style purse with almost a tube-like shape. And of course it has some nice lace detail and a Lolita style painted motifs.
The fabric is the absolute last from a skirt I made way back at the beginning of college XD So once again I’ve finally used up fabric that I had been carrying around for years; I couldn’t be happier :B!

Freebie Friday: The Gothic Lolita Satchel

I remember the first time I saw a Gothic Lolita Bible. Up until then I was not interested in goth at all. Marilyn Manson was definitely not my thing and I thought all the black and chains and fishnets were kind of boring really – uninspired. But when I cracked open that Gothic Lolita Bible I saw what goth should and could be. Gothic with a capital G if you will :3 This was Victorian-inspired, elaborate, detailed clothing and costumes. It was breathtaking really, and I had a brief stint where I made a lot of Lolita-style costumes that I still love.

The red I used here was a leftover from a costume I made last Halloween, and I had a lot of different ideas in how to use it. It was when I saw all these bits of hardware and lace that needed a home that I tried to find what they could go with, and this red was the best and only answer. The strap was the last bit of a leather trim I purchased many years back for another costume, and it was the perfect length for a handle, so that felt like kismet. The lace was a leftover of some Lolita-style bunny hats I made a collection of a little while back. I still have so much of that lace left XD So expect to see more later! And lastly the buckles were leftover from some other bags I had made. I really like the look of them so I was itching to find a way to use them up.

I think the look all came together quite nicely! And it reminds me of a lot of the bags you’d find in the Gothic Lolita Bible so I feel like I’ve succeeded!
