Hello everyone!I’ve got a new plush pattern I’ve added to my shop! This time last year I released my Long Dragon Plush pattern, and ever since then I’ve had it in my mind to try and make a curved version that you can wear around your neck. And so I gave it go! The pattern shows you how to make either an Eastern-style or Western-style … Continue reading Dragon Sale! Plus New Neck Dragon Plush & Free Fanart Hacks!
Hello everyone! I’ve got a new pattern that I’ve recently added to my Etsy shop 😀 Although I’ve done lots of dragons in the past, I felt like I never gave due diligence to Eastern style dragons. Even my free pattern for the Haku scarf just isn’t quite the same as making a proper plush, so I thought I’d really go all out with this … Continue reading New Shop Pattern! Long Dragon Plush
Hi everyone! I’ve got a new pattern that I’ve recently added to my Etsy shop 😀 Back when I was doing the legendary creature collection, I had a small handful of people asking for a Kirin (or Qilin). At the time I didn’t know what it was, but I did my research and found so much interesting information! They’re considered much like the Asian version … Continue reading New Shop Pattern! Kirin Plush

Hi everyone! Despite the extra day this year, February really flew by! I can’t believe it’s already March. I was able to tackle some new projects this month, but I also ended up coming up with more things to do, so I feel more crazy than ever, haha! Has that ever happened to you? Anyway, the response to the dragon plushies from February’s challenge was … Continue reading New Crafting Challenge Pattern for March!
This purse came about because I was in one of those moods again like with the Pretty in Plaid Purse project ^-~ I saw this lavender printed canvas and had the urge to make a sweet, feminine little purse that had a darling shape. The word sakura is Japanese for cherry blossom, and it’s the first thing I think of when I see adorable springtime … Continue reading Freebie Friday: The Sakura Purse
Do you like how crazy and edgy today’s pattern looks? 😀 This project is a tribute to my favorite musician of all time, Ringo Shiina. Ringo is a Japanese musician that’s been making music since about 1998, and her style ranges from punk, alternative, jazz, ska, funk, and even some hip hop. Her diversity is what I love so much about her. She even manages … Continue reading Freebie Friday: The Ringo Shiina Sling
Ah, yes! Finally I’m getting into some of the things that I love 😀 This, of course, is Totoro, the loveable fuzzy forest creature from the Ghibli children’s film, My Neighbor Totoro. It’s probably one of my favorite Miyazaki movies, and really epitomizes the fantasy and innocence of childhood I think. I had some gray twill that I originally used to make another bag. And … Continue reading Freebie Friday: The Totoro Bag
Here’s yet another project I whipped up from scraps! It’ a really cute bucket bag styled to look like some delicious sushi ^-^ perfect for any sushi lovers out there. For this project I made use of some leftover green fabric I had from making another bag. This particular shade of hunter green I thought was kind of plain to be honest XD So I … Continue reading Freebie Friday: The Gunkan Sushi Bucket Bag
