Free Pattern Friday! Pikachu Hoodie Hack

Hi everyone!
It’s September now, so that means spooky season is coming up fast! As usual, I think it’s nice to start off with some costume ideas — so here’s another hoodie hack! ❤
I used to create Pokemon hoodies for sale pretty regularly, but pattern-making now takes up my whole schedule. I told myself if that happened I would start sharing my templates for the character hoodies. Who better to start with than everyone’s favorite: Pikachu?

The pattern has the templates for making the ears, tails, and back stripes to dress up a hooded garment. You could use it with my free Scoodie pattern, my free Hooded Shrug Pattern, the Hooded Cowl Pattern from last year, or my paid pattern for a Cosplay hoodie. You could also try it on a pre-purchased hoodie if you can find matching yellow fabric. The pieces can be added to either child or adult garments, though you might want to decrease the size about 25%-40% for a baby size.

For a little extra fun, I’ve also included a female version of the tail, which has sort of a heart shape at the end. And there’s also a surprised face you can use from the popular meme, haha! Both faces are available in both applique template and embroidery file versions. So if you adjust the front of the hood to be one long piece, you can embroider the face in the middle.
I hope you all like it and it might make some of your Halloween planning a little easier!

Free Pattern Friday! Gen 8 Pokemon Starter Hoodie Hacks

Hi everyone!

So it’s September and that means I’m kicking off my Halloween projects! I’ve got 2 months of lots of creepy patterns and costumes to look forward to, as well as a giveaway in October! I hope you’ll stay tuned for all I have planned ❤

The first project on my list is a new hoodie hack! I figure releasing it now will give time for everyone to sew it in time for Halloween if they like it. With the new Pokemon game coming out later this year, I thought it might be fun to do costumes for the new starters – Scorbunny, Grookey, and Sobble!

This pattern has the templates for making the ears, tails, and other features to dress up a hooded garment like these three Pokemon. You could use it with my free Scoodie pattern, my free Hooded Shrug pattern, the free Hooded Cowl Pattern from last year, or my paid pattern for a Cosplay Hoodie. You could also try it on a pre-purchased hoodie if you’re willing to do some hand-sewing 😀

The pieces can be added to either child or adult garments, though you might want to decrease the size about 25%-40% for a baby size. I hope you all like it and it might make some of your Halloween planning a little easier!

I fell in love with Sobble at first sight during the announcement, but I must admit wearing the Grookey hoodie was really cute and fun! I know Scorbunny was a runaway hit – who’s your favorite starter?

Pattern Hack! Make a Plush Pea Pod Family!

Tut004
I recently modified my Chick Pea plush pattern into this little snuggly family of peas to give to my friend 😀

You guys remember the Chick Peas plush pattern I featured in March, right? Of course you do!
201503

If you’ve purchased the pattern or earned yours during March, then you can use this hack to modify the plush into a zipped pouch! In the following tutorial, I’ll show you what new supplies to purchase and how you need to change the pattern you already have to make a pea pod family zip pouch instead of the snuggly chick peas.

The story behind this goes that a little bit back one of my very closest friends announced she was pregnant! She wanted to have a gender reveal party and announce the new arrival via plush! >w< So I was lucky enough to get the honor of making the family of peas in a zippered pea pod pouch for the reveal ^-^ In the end, the new arrival turned out to be a boy, so the middle pea was decorated with a little blue newsboy cap. Unfortunately I had to make it at the last moment so that’s not included in the tutorial here ^^; But this family of peas would be a lovely gift for a baby shower or perhaps a Mother or Father’s Day gift.
