Hi everyone! For this free pattern I was hoping it would be a bit of a two-for-one! I had requests for both a panda bear and a memory bear so I thought I’d combine them 🙂 If you’ve never heard of them before, memory bears are a kind of stuffed teddy bear made with scraps of a loved one’s clothing to serve as a memento. … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday! Panda Memory Bear 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. … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday! Ferret Plush
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all are excited for 2017! Which also means it’s the fourth anniversary of my blog 😀 It started back in 2013 and sometimes I can hardly believe I’ve kept it up for this long ❤ It felt like 2016 had a lot of ups and downs for most people, so I’m glad to have a fresh start. Though … Continue reading Happy New Year! And the Last MCC Pattern ♥
Happy December! We’re full into the holiday season now it looks like. I had a great Thanksgiving and did a lot of fantastic online shopping from fellow Etsy sellers & small businesses alike. I hope you all are having a great holiday season as well! I have a new pattern to add to your festivities ♥
As the year was drawing to a close, I got so many requests for a Jackalope 😀 I can’t blame you all for being nervous! I saved it until the end because it’s my personal favorite legendary creature! It is of course a combination of jackrabbit and antelope. So basically a rabbit with horns or antlers. They’re a popular kitschy touristy mascot of sorts to the American west and I think they’re adorable!
As for difficulty: This one has a lot of tiny pieces, particularly the narrow feet, that are sewn on by hand. So it’s best to position them carefully and check on them frequently as you sew. With all that in mind, I gave it a 4/10 stars in difficulty.
Hi everybody! Wow! I can’t believe it’s November already. I really missed October going by so soon, but I’m also excited about November and the promise of fall weather and some holiday shopping.

When I planned for the theme of this year’s challenge, I wasn’t quite sure I wanted to include many monsters. … Continue reading New MCC Challenge for October!
Hey everyone! Wow! It’s already September! The rest of the year is just flying by 😀 But it’s been a great one so far. I’ve had so much fun designing all of the legendary creatures for this year.

I have so much planned for that I … Continue reading New Crafting Challenge Pattern for September!
