Free Pattern Friday! Kitty Pumpkin Hat

Hi everyone!
I’ve got the last project for the Halloween season! And because of that, it’s super simple and would make a great last-minute costume ❤
It’s this cute kitty pumpkin hat! At first I had designed just a plain pumpkin hat, but you know me, I’ve got to add kitty ears onto everything ^_^

Included are sizes from babies up to large adults – 13”-25” heads. It works best with fleece or another fluffy stretchy fabric so it stretches around your head and keeps you warm for the upcoming chill!
It comes together really quickly and doesn’t have a lot of complicated parts, so I rated it a 2/10 in difficulty.

And that does it for the Halloween season! I hope you all enjoyed the projects I had to share ❤ It’s hard to believe that the end of the year is just around the corner.
Happy Halloween everyone!

From now through the 23rd everything is 10% off, while Halloween patterns (like everything spooky, wearable, or costumed) is 20% off. But the special feature is the Monster Doll Expansion Pack and an embroidery update for the Cryptid plush bundle! The expansion pack and all the doll patterns that it fits are 30% off, as well as the old Cryptid plush patterns ♥ Plus all the new embroidery is 50% off!


The pack includes clothes and hair to make classic monsters like a Vampire, Werewolf, Skeleton, Zombie, and Swamp Mermaid (complete with snake hair if you want a Medusa instead).

The clothes will also fit on the Anthro Woodland Witches, the Standing Animal Plush, the Centaur Plush Doll, it’s just that there will be more exceptions (like you can’t fit pants over an animal with a tail <3) With some ingenuity you can certainly still make some interesting monsters though ❤ Or if you’re not interested in any of those the clothes will also fit on the free Bat & Cat Girl pattern from earlier in the month!
I hope you’ll give the new pack a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!

Free Pattern Friday! Bat & Cat Girl Doll Plush

Hi everyone!
I’m leaning more on the costume side of the Halloween spirit today! These plush dolls are a much simpler version of the Chibi Human plush dolls from my store. So they have a little more hand sewing and fewer curves, since the version I sell has some complicated bits. It always bothered me that I don’t have a simple doll plush for those that are still starting out, so hopefully this helps some beginners!

In the spirit of Halloween, these cute dolls are in their best bat and cat costumes, complete with animal ear hats and fun printed dresses 😀 So if you have some cute Halloween cotton prints this is the perfect time to bust them out! But since these have the same proportions as my Chibi Human doll plush, you should know they can share clothes with them too! 😉
I rated this one a 4/10 in difficulty since there are some tiny pieces and a good bit of hand sewing, but it’s still much more basic than the paid version. The hat and dress come together especially fast so you can have a whole wardrobe in just a day!

There are applique templates included to make the face and hair, as well as embroidery files too ❤ To applique the hair by embroidery machine you need a 5” x 7” hoop, but for just the face it can fit into a 4” x 4” hoop.
I hope these mischievous little girls can make it into your spooky sewing plans too!

Free Embroidery Update! Halloween Style ♥

Hey everybody!
For Halloween I wanted to go back and make embroidery for some of my older free spooky patterns – particularly the ones that got the most requests. And to round out the group I created some Halloween versions of the Bat Plush as well! I wanted to make sure people with 4” x 4” embroidery hoops were included so I made adjustments in different ways to make it work.
Included are:


• The Witch Kitty from 2017 😀 This one has a diagonal face in order to fit in smaller hoops. And just for fun there are options to stitch stars all over the kitty’s cape and hat too!


The Sugar Skull Kitty from 2016! This one was too large to fit into a 5” x 7” or 4” x 4” hoop, so the pattern has been shrunk down about 30% (the new templates are included in the instructions). This way both the skull and rib cage can fit in a 5” x 7” hoop and just the skull can fit into a 4” x 4” hoop.


• And of course the Bat Plush is back! The original faces for this design could only fit in a 5” x 7” hoop, so to include smaller hoops I shrunk down the pattern about 20% for mini bats! The new templates are included in the embroidery instructions 😀 These bats are about 7” tall instead of the usual 9” and their faces and other details fit within a 4” x 4” hoop diagonally.
The original embroidery instructions and files are now updated to include 4” x 4” versions of the original faces and the new templates too ❤ But for this Halloween add-on you can also make a Pumpkin Jack-o-lantern bat or a Skeleton bat in both the standard and mini size! If you don’t have an embroidery machine, I also have the applique templates for the Halloween Bats here.


I hope you all enjoy these new additions and they stitch out well for you!

Free Pattern Friday! Spider Plush

Hi everyone!
More Halloween fun today! I’ve got a creepy animal plush that I hope will make your day a little spookier ❤ This spider plush has a simple little chubby body, eight tiny legs, and two mandibles. But my favorite part is probably the four eerie eyes.

Getting the 8 legs sewn in is a little difficult as the head area starts to get crowded. So it’s best to take it very slowly. Or if that doesn’t work, try sewing the legs into the body instead where there’s more room 😀 Aside from that, it’s a quick plush since there aren’t ears or tails or other extra body parts. Overall I rated it a 4/10.

What I ended up doing for some variety is give the body lots of different marking options 😀 There’s a set of hearts you can do for a cute spider, or a skull for an ominous one. But any spider design would be incomplete without a black widow motif. The applique templates have the classic hourglass, but I went a little crazy with the embroidery version and made it ornate with a web design inside! All the embroidery pieces fit within 4” x 4” hoops, though the body pieces need to be on the diagonal to fit 🙂
I hope it might bring a smile to even some arachnophobics! And I hope you all are looking forward to my next Halloween update! ❤

New Shop Pattern! Animal Ear Witch Hat

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

I’ve been in a witchy mood ever since the Hogwarts House Plush Pattern I released back in July, so I thought for the next leg of my Halloween projects I wanted to make a witch hat!
A classic cone style hat is a really fun simple project that you can find for free many places, so of course I had to take it a step further! I designed two fun crown shapes in addition to the basic cone. And of course knowing my style I just had to put animal ears on them too ❤

The pattern includes templates to make cat, unicorn, or rabbit ears — and you can decorate them with horns, antlers, wings, and flowers too. To finish it off, you can make a cute accent band (complete with slots to hold your potion vials!) and a bow.
It has sizes for heads from 13” to 25” so it can be made for both babies and adults. The instructions also come with tips about different interfacing to use so you can make a hat that’s super crisp and sturdy or one that’s more cozy and floppy.

Though it’s completely optional, it felt too good to pass up a hat with a spooky face too. So applique templates for this creepy grinning face and an evil eye are also in there as well ❤ The embroidery is also available separately, which comes in 7 different sizes so it would suit lots of other spooky projects besides the hat!
To celebrate its launch, the pattern will be 30% off for the first weekend, and the embroidery files will be 50% off! I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!

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?
