New Shop Pattern! Goldfish Plush

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

After doing both an octopus & a jellyfish pattern, I felt the urge to add another creature to complete the sea-life theme. So I made this chubby little goldfish. I had gotten a few requests to do a goldfish before, and so this one has more of a kawaii feel than the Love Koi pair I did a while back.
And like with the octopus and jellyfish, of course I made animal variations! Mostly so I could make a catfish – yes, I went there 😛
As with the others, you have your choice of a cat, rabbit, panda, fox, or alpaca. And it has detailed side, dorsal, and tail fins that really make it look special. Unlike the octopus and jellyfish though, it needs a lot less hand-sewing so it comes together much more quickly.

To celebrate its launch, I’m offering the pattern for 50% off for the first week!
I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!

Free Pattern Friday! Love Koi Plushies

Prj079

I have an early Valentine’s Day gift for you all! This is a project that’s been running through my head for a long while 😀 I thought I’d put it with the Monthly Crafting Challenge for 2015 with the rest of the punny food animals, but since it wasn’t food related it got bumped. They’re inspired by the Japanese word ‘koi’ which means both ‘carp’ and ‘love,’ and the beautiful yin-yang moon-spirit carp featured in Avatar: The Last Airbender. So together it’s a pair of sweet koi plushies that nestle together in a yin-yang pattern, and their matching markings come together to make a heart ^-^

If you just need a carp or fish pattern, the pattern works just fine for that too. Though it is a little more complex than a typical fish pattern because it’s asymmetrical and the fish twists off to the side. Placing the heart lobes just right is also a pain, so I think it’s much easier to stitch it in place after both fish are done than trying to sew it on beforehand as I would usually do. Hopefully by posting this tutorial today it might help inspire some wonderful V-day sewing! I hope you all like it!
