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!

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!

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!

New Shop Pattern! Steampunk Aviator Cap

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

It’s a little pet project of mine to create as many cute steampunk things as possible, so many years back I designed these classic aviator caps but added animal ears to them. Since then I’ve had a lot of requests to share the pattern, so that day is finally here!
This hat pattern has a classic aviator cap look, but is more optimized for costumers 😀 It’s a little more loose-fitting so it fits more comfortably for wearing all day and is less likely to give you hat hair. It also grabs your attention a lot more with its big chin strap and buckle. So this hat isn’t intended for actual aviation, but it still makes a great statement ❤
You can make it tighter if you choose, since it has sizes for heads from 13” all the way to 25”. So you can also make fleece versions for babies that are both cozy and cute.

The pattern includes templates to make a fox, cat, rabbit, or deer. You can also use the antler template to make a jackalope as well ❤ It works well with fuzzy fabrics like fleece, simple fabrics like twill, or even leather and faux fur! My personal favorite combination is faux suede with a minky lining.
The pattern has some curves that are a little difficult to contend with (especially if you’re not using a stretchy fabric), but overall the pattern doesn’t have a lot of surprises. Installing all the hardware can be tricky if you’re not used to it, but even if you skip it the result still looks pretty great.

For an extra steampunk look, I’ve also designed two embroidery files that can work along with this pattern, but they would be perfect for lots of other projects too. There’s both a set of gears and a bird skull with a creepy Victorian vibe.

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!

New Shop Pattern! Woodland Witches Anthro Dolls

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

I’ve gotten a lot of requests for more dolls, so before I jump into humans I thought I’d try my own version of an Anthropomorphic doll 🙂 It’s similar to the standing animal plush I did previously, but these are little less chibi and have longer limbs and a more clearly defined neck. The shape of the head has a more classic animal shape than the big round heads that I usually do.
Their longer silhouette means they look very nice dressed up, so for this first batch I thought I’d go with a witchy theme! The pattern includes templates to make a hooded cape, witch’s hat, and a leaf backpack. It also has templates for little felt details like flowers, wings, and leaves.
With that said, you can use the clothes from this pattern for the standing animal as well! Though the hoodie from the standing animal pattern is for smaller arms, so that’s a bit of a tight fit.

The hardest part of the plush is definitely the arms, though unfortunately that’s what helps them hang down instead of stick outward. So if you didn’t have a lot of trouble with the arms on the standing plush pattern, then this one won’t be too bad for you. All in all, I get a lot of requests for more plushies that are almost completely machine-sewn, which made the arms difficult. But on the bright side it means it comes together a lot faster once you get the hang of it!

One thing that might help is this pattern has some accompanying embroidery files you can purchase! All 4 eye designs are available together in a pack. The design pack comes with a files suited specifically for the plush and also standalone files that you can use for other plushies should you choose. The ones meant for the plush can fit either on a 4×4 hoop (if you’re doing a fox style plush with a muzzle), or a 5×7 hoop (if you’re doing a full face like the cat).

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!

New Shop Pattern! Fleece Fish Hat


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

I’ve had a lot of requests for the pattern I use to create my Magikarp hats. I try to save my fanart for my free patterns, so I thought this was a good opportunity to have fun and really expand the pattern into lots of different fish! The pattern gives you the instructions and templates to make a cute slouchy-style hat that’s very trendy lately, but the opening of the hat forms the mouth of a fish that’s glomming into your head ❤

With the pattern you can make a classic goldfish, shark (complete with sharp teeth!), betta fish, or koi fish (ideal for Magikarp). Though you can swap out the side, top, and tail fins to make lots of different combinations. The pattern is sized for heads between 13” and 25” around, so it runs the scope of sizes from babies to large adults.

To celebrate its launch, I’ll be offering it at 30% off (not including taxes and fees) for this weekend! I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!

Free Pattern Friday! Witch Kitty Plush


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 that are always such a blast to go through at the fabric store. Use up your stash dressing up the little witch hat or capelet!

The finished plush is an adorable handheld size making it perfect to hang around on your desk during the rest of the Halloween weeks. I hope you guys will put your own fun twists on this character!
