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 … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday! Rat Plush

Halloween is fast approaching! So I thought I might share this fast costume idea 😀 It’s an add-on of sorts to my cosplay hoodie pattern, but it works just as well with other hoodie patterns or even with a hoodie you might already own. It’s all the extras you need to make a Night Fury hoodie 🙂 The pattern comes with templates for head spikes, … Continue reading Pattern Hack! Night Fury Hoodie
The Halloween craziness continues! While thinking of other spooky-themed projects I realized I hadn’t done anything witch-related. A perfect opportunity to dress up a sweet little black cat! I had so much fun putting this project together, especially because it gives you an opportunity to use bright Halloween colors like purple, acid green, and pumpkin orange. Not to mention lots of fun Halloween cotton prints … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday! Witch Kitty Plush

Hi all! It’s only September, but I’m already getting excited for Halloween. As most sewists know, you have to start early for every occasion. So for this year I thought I’d make an owl plush!

Hi everybody! It’s officially October, and perhaps my favorite part of the year 😀 Since that means Halloween, fall, and costumes! I have some Halloween-themed projects to share this month in addition to this month’s challenge pattern. I hope you all like it! A Werewolf! 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!
Since it’s still September it’s not quite Halloween season, but I couldn’t help myself! I felt the urge to make a little bat plush and wanted to share the pattern with you 😀 It’s a pretty basic shape with a big head, tiny body, and oversized wings and ears. It’s wonderfully floppy and expressive and very fun to hug. It features several face applique options … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday! Bat Plush
The month of Halloween commences today! I hope you all enjoy the projects I have planned 😀 This one, like all the rest, is meant to be an easy way to add to or complete your Halloween ensemble ^-^ This week I used some scrap black fleece to make a scoodie :B That is a cross between a scarf and a hood that are sometimes seen among the nerdy crafting crowd. Except this particular scarf/hood combo has a little face mask so you can lurk amid the shadows, pockets at the end of the scarf, and big fleece shurikens to wield! Pair this with a black outfit and you’re an instant ninja that’s snuggly and warm to boot!
The size is sort of an adult one-size-fits-most, but since it’s only a hood it should also fit well on most bigger kids as well. The mask is held in place by buttons, which not only make the mask easy to adjust while you’re wearing it, but easy to adjust while you sew it as well. You can simply move the placement of the buttons to make the mask fit tighter or higher on your ninja-in-training 😀
