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!

Throwback Thursday! Free Past Embroidery Files ♥

Hey everybody!
I have one last holiday gift to share with you and it’s more embroidery files! I went back and revisited some more free patterns from the past that you all need embroidery files for! You can find the links at the bottom as well as on the original pattern pages ♥


The new additions are:
• The Dolphin plush and Narwhal plush! Even though the eyes are super simple, they’re also small which would explain why I had a lot of requests for an embroidery file. They both fit 4″ x 4″ hoops.
• The Tiny Dino plush! Both the happy smiling face and the cute :3 face are included. Sadly I couldn’t make these fit 4″ x 4″ hoops, but 5″ x 7″ hoops will work fine ♥
• The Kitty Bean plush! This one has 3 different faces 😀 A classic cute face, a sweet face with lashed eyes, and a happy little ‘squee!’ face with scrunched up eyes. The full face fits 5″ x 7″ hoops, but they also include a version without whiskers that fits 4″ x 4″ hoops.
• And finally the Owl plush! This one has the original 3 faces — the heart face, and angular scary face, and the feathered face used in the Owl Bear plush. They all fit 5″ x 7″ hoops too. I tinkered with it so much to try and make a 4″ x 4″ version, but sadly everything was too big. So I tried just making a smaller mini owl instead! So if you have a 4″ x 4″ hoop, you can make these tiny palm-sized owls. The embroidery files include a new shrunk down version of the pattern that you can use with the original instructions 😀 So if you’re into sewing super tiny pieces you might like this project!

Here are the embroidery files for all of the projects mentioned! Each includes instructions to help you through all the stitching 😀 I hope they help your sewing!

Free Pattern Friday! Fox Plush

Hello everybody!

It’s crazy to think that after all these years I still haven’t done a fox plush! It’s such a classic animal, but I suppose I wanted to be sure I was giving you all something I hadn’t seen before and is also relatively easy ❤ After a good bit of testing and trials I landed on this design of a tiny little hand-held fox with a big wrapping tail!

The pattern itself doesn’t have a lot of pieces, so the foxes come together rather quickly 😀 To get the curve of the tail, it has some double-ended darts, which is likely the most difficult part. Sewing it won’t look pretty until the tail is finally done 😛 But despite all that I’d still call it a 3/10.

You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. In it are the files for the face, which uses applique for the muzzle. There’s also the ears, which has cute little applique fluffs. To make things easier the ears are sewn in-the-hoop – so they’re ready to attach to your head once they come out of the machine! Both files are sized to fit 4” x 4” embroidery hoops too! I hope you all enjoy!


I made some cut & sew versions for Spoonflower too! So you can skip all the applique and embroidery because all the faces and pattern notes are printed right on the fabric ♥ There’s a classic orange and gray fox as well as a fun icy arctic blue and galaxy fox 😀

Free Pattern Friday! Otter Plush

Hey everybody!
I’m fulfilling another highly requested animal today with this sweet huggable otter 😀 I found this one to be tricky to design, since I knew I wanted it lying on its back so it could hold a shell for all to see. But its tail often got in the way of that pose. It took a lot of attempts but I think I like the result!

They don’t have a lot of pieces, so they come together rather quickly. The head and shell are sewn on by hand, so that’s a little tricky, but altogether I’d call it a solid 3/10 in difficulty.
You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. The files only need a 4” x 4” hoop! Included is the face as well as the little shell, which has cute little accent lines and is sewn in-the-hoop style to save some time ❤

Free Pattern Friday! Rat Plush

Hi everyone!

Between the people who own cute rats as pets and those noticing that the year after next is the Chinese Year of the Rat, I was getting a lot of suggestions for a rat plush! I thought it might be fun to share it during October so I could do both a sweet version and a scary version like the Owl plush from last year.

So these sweet little rat babies have both a cute face to choose from and a creepy face – complete with bitten ear and eye scar! I’m sure one of them is bound to get you excited to sew ❤

They don’t have a lot of pieces, so they come together rather quickly. The neck is a little tricky so I’ve rated it a 3/10, but it might feel more like a 2 to some.

You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. Both faces only need a 4” x 4” hoop, so no one is left out! ❤ I hope you all like it!

And if you’d like to buy the fabric already pre-printed and ready to sew, 4 different designs are available on my Spoonflower page! No embroidery or applique (or even fabric hunting for that matter) needed <3. The group is modeled after Halloween candy! So there’s candy corn, caramel apple, pumpkin, and chocolate (with bat sprinkles ♥)!

Free Pattern Friday! Ferret Plush

Hi everyone!
I had a lot of requests for a ferret for the last year or so, so I’m really glad I could finally take a crack at it 😀 It was a lot of fun coming up with a design that showcased the elongated body while still keeping some chibi features. I especially love the tiny feet on the ends of the stumpy legs.

It doesn’t have a lot of pieces, so it comes together quickly. All in all I’ve rated it a 3/10. The only part where I had trouble was cutting the wrong side of the feet to turn them right side out. If you actually pay attention (like I didn’t, haha!) you should have no trouble 😀

You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. The face needs at least a 5” x 7” hoop and has a cute applique face mask. Both feet actually fit into a 4” x 4” hoop because they’re so tiny. And since they’re so tiny I also set up the file to sew them in the hoop as well. ❤ I hope you all like it!

And if you’d like to buy the fabric already pre-printed and ready to sew, 4 different designs are available on my Spoonflower page! No embroidery or applique (or even fabric hunting for that matter) needed <3. I did a galaxy and a red panda version that were just too much fun!

Free Pattern Friday! Red Panda Plush

Hi everyone!
I hope you enjoy this new free pattern I whipped up! I had a few requests for a red panda, and what pushed me over the edge was Sanrio’s new Netflix show, Aggretsuko ❤ About a sweet 20-something office lady red panda who vents her frustrations by singing death metal karaoke. I absolutely adored it and had to make a red panda.
As a change of pace, I thought I’d try to make this pattern a little easier, so it has a simpler body that I’d rate a 2/10. I did want to sink my teeth into some part of it, so I had a lot of fun making a big colorful striped tail. That part has a lot of curved sewing, but I think it’s pretty straightforward. So it might be good practice for someone that hasn’t done much curved sewing yet.

You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. The face needs at least a 5” x 7” hoop. All of the white face markings are done in applique to keep them nice and fuzzy ❤ I hope you all like it!
