Holiday Sale! And New Squirrel Beanie Plush Pattern!

Hello everyone!
I heard from some that they missed my Thanksgiving sale, so I thought I’d run one more sale of the year for those last-minute holiday shoppers ♥

Everything is 10% off, and this time around all small, stocking stuffer kind of items are 20% off 😀 And that’s to celebrate my latest pattern that should be great for a quick gift!

These cute squirrels and sugar gliders! It’s a classic beanie-style plush with a body that’s filled with poly pellets. It makes it tons of fun for tossing around or just holding in your hand.
The twist I’ve given these is that the pieces are super-optimized! If you plan to make these to sell or give, they go really quickly because there’s almost no hand-sewing. It’s only the spot under the neck that needs to be sewn up to close these plushies.

And because they are so tiny, appliqueing the face is even more of a challenge than usual. Safety eyes would of course be a great alternative, but I thought it fair to include some embroidered eyes with the pattern at no extra cost. They fit 4″ x 4″ hoops so no one is left out!

This new pattern will be 30% off during the sale to celebrate the launch! I hope you’ll give it a look if you think it would make a nice gift for someone ♥ And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!
Happy holidays everyone!

New Shop Pattern! Floppy Dragon Plush

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

Over the past year, I had a lot of interest in a pattern for a floppy plush. I imagine that could mean different things for different people, such as something like a beanie baby. But I got it in my head to try something that’s posable. So I tried it out on a dragon first, to see if I could make one with weighted arms and legs so you could pose it in different ways. And I’m super excited with how it turned out!

The new pattern is for this small dragon plush that’s the perfect size for flopping around in your hands. It has extra poly pellets in its arms, legs, and body so it can sit up on its own or flop down on its belly. The limbs are posable and expressive, so it’s fun to see what kind of looks you can achieve. In some cases, I’ve even been able to get it on all fours ❤ Keep in mind of course that it poses best on a rough surface, such as a tablecloth, unfinished wood, etc.
And for an extra fun twist, the templates included are for elemental themed dragons – including earth, air, water, and fire. So you can mix them up for something unique, or go with a more classic dragon look.

The main downside of the pattern is that it’s trickier to sew :/ Definitely my hardest plush pattern so far at 7/10 in difficulty. All the extra bits, like the spikes, claws, and ears, are very detailed and tedious. On top of that, the head is sewn on by hand and takes some careful positioning. So this might be a little daunting for beginners, but I couldn’t help wanting to share it anyway.

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

Freebie Friday! The Floppy Disk Coasters

Prj035
Greetings from Tampa! :B In my 7 months of having this blog I’m finally doing my first automatic post. This weekend I’m in Tampa attending Metrocon, a huge anime convention that I’ve been frequenting for 10 years now! I’m selling all of my cutesy wares that have inhabited my Etsy store for some time. I’ll be back on Monday, so you might not see many comment or email responses from me until then. In addition, my store might change a bit depending on what I’ve sold at the convention. Anyway, onto the sewings!

I’m dating myself today! Are most of you out there old enough to remember floppy disks? :B I don’t know where I would be at this age if it weren’t for them. I remember in middle school my brother and I purchased about 3 dozen of these babies for just a few bucks from a store that was having a going out of business sale. Then we would take trips to the library and use the internet to fill up each disk with the tiniest of snippets of our favorite things XD .jpegs, .gifs, books (in .txt format of course), and .midis. We’d fill up all those disks during the hour that we had then bring them all home x3 It was kind of pathetic but it was all we had during those burgeoning internet years.

Anyhow, I was excited to use the floppy disk motif, but a square could be used so many ways x3 I could have made plushies or pouches I guess, but I thought coasters would be fun! And with all the cotton prints I’m trying to use up it gave me a chance to make the disks look like the brightly colored novelty disks my brother and I caught on sale sometimes. Though of course you all could go with the traditional black ^-^
