Free Pattern Friday! Mer-kitty Plush

Hi everyone!
I’ve been enamored by all the online art challenges that go on through the year, like Inktober. And some of you might know that this month is Mermay! So it felt like a mermaid of some kind had to be in order ❤ This little cutie is similar to my Witch Kitty plush from last October, but it has a huge colorful tail with complementing little waist fins.
With just a few major pieces, it’s a little easier to put together than the Witch Kitty, though the waist seam gets a little crowded when you sew it. So I settled on 4/10 stars but it’s just barely there.

This pattern also comes with embroidery files for the face 😀 Although a 5” x 7” hoop is needed. The chest fur only needs a 4” x 4” hoop though. I also created a top stitched design for the tail. Sadly the tail is quite large so you’ll need at least a 7” x 10” hoop to stitch all the little scales – which looks pretty cool when it’s done. But if you don’t have a large hoop the tail will still look really great with the more manageable top stitching guides included in the pattern.

And if you’d like to buy the fabric already pre-printed and ready to sew, 4 different designs are available on my Spoonflower page! No embroidery or applique (or even fabric hunting for that matter) needed <3. I’m so happy with how these came out — the fins are super detailed and have loads of bright gradated colors!

New Shop Pattern! Pudgy Pet Plush

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

I’ve gotten a lot of requests for a dog or cat pattern that people can use to make into their pets ❤ While there are loads of ways to tackle this, I got it in my head to try a more teddy-bear style plush with both a large head and body. I figure this would be a lot more huggable and squeezable. I think other styles would be just as fun, so perhaps I’ll try for those later 🙂

For now, I made this set of sweet animals that comes with templates for 4 different kinds of ears, 5 different tails, and 3 different faces. With all of those combined, it’s a lot of fun getting to put together your favorite pet. And to top it off, you can make them a matching collar or bandanna! (I'm unnaturally excited about the bandanna for some reason, haha!) I thought with the arms outstretched it looked perfect for a Maneki Neko. The construction is quite similar to the chibi plushies I’ve done in the past, but since the neck is so much wider for this one, it’s much easier to sew it by machine. All in all, this pattern has very little hand-sewing so it comes together quickly if you’re a seasoned stitcher.

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