New Shop Pattern! Doll Kigurumi Expansion Pack

Hi everyone!
I’ve got a new doll clothing pattern I’ve added to my shop!

This one has been requested by fans for some time, a kigurumi! That is the Japanese word for a onesie costume made to look like an animal ❤ With it, you can take any of my human doll plush patterns to dress it up like 8 different animals! Including a cat, rabbit/jackalope, fox, bat, unicorn, dragon, shark, and bird. There are tons of ear, tail, wing, and sleeve options so you can mix and match to make different animals too (I bet a T-rex would be super cute!).

If you already have my Chibi Human Doll or Merpeople pattern, then you’re all set to get dressed up! But if not, this costume also works on my free Bat & Cat Girl Doll.
As always, the sewing pattern contains applique templates to make the hood faces by hand or regular sewing machine. But if you want to do embroidery, those files are sold separately. You’ll find there are sweet animal faces for the costume hoods, but also silly anime faces for the humans wearing them! I’ve been wanting to do a pack of anime faces for the longest time, and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to unleash them ❤ They're a separate embroidery pack since they're completely optional and not needed to make the costumes.

To celebrate the launch, the new pattern will be 30% off from now through next Wednesday, the 1st. The compatible base patterns will also be 30% off. Meanwhile the embroidery packs will be 50% off, all other dolls and expansion packs will be 20% off, the rest of the shop will be 10% off. I hope you'll give them a look! And if you snagged a copy of the new pattern, I hope you enjoy it!

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! Celestial Fox & Hare Plush

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

The shape of the plush is not terribly uncommon; it’s a chibi-style plush that stands on four legs. It has a large head and a tiny body with stubby little feet. It works for a lot of different animals, and would be perfect for things like Pokedolls, but I went with a Fox and a Hare for this collection. The hare has a slightly smaller body than the fox, but they both have the same size head. So you have your pick of body size, or use both if it works for a set you’re doing!

To put a unique spin on them, they have a celestial theme like the elemental dragons I did back in March. Included is a Sun Fox, Moon Hare, Star Hare, and Black Hole Fox. So there are 4 different ear templates as well as different tail and wing templates to dress up your animal. Technically the hares are wolpertingers because they have both horns and wings, but it made the title less of a mouthful to just call them hares in the pattern, haha ❤ You don’t need to follow my theme to make a cute character, but this gives you lots to work with.
It’s a little tricky to make like some of my other recent patterns, especially if you’re not used to sewing gussets. But I try to make it easy as possible by clearly labeling all the points you need to match up. And of course each step is taken really slowly.

To celebrate its launch, I’ll be offering it at 30% off all through Memorial Day weekend! So you have until the end of May 28th to get the discount. I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!

A Jackalope!

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.
