New Shop Pattern! Dragon Backpack Plush

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

Last year I did plush backpack of a cute rabbit, fox, and cat. And you guys gave it such a welcome response – thank you so much! But the most common question was whether there would be a dragon version ❤ I’d be crazy not to make one! So here’s what I came up with!
It’s got the same major features as the original plush backpack, but with a cute dragon body instead. It comes with lots of different wings, horns, and spikes that you can change up depending on the look you want. I felt inspired to do a weather theme. So there’s a snow, rain, wind, and lightning dragon — but they really work together in whatever combination you like ♥

As before, it comes in two sizes. The small is a more typical size that fits a few essentials like your phone, wallet, and keys. While the large is an epic statement piece that can fit a whole tablet!
It is a slightly harder pattern since it combines both plush-making and bag-making. Even more so because for this dragon version I included how to make a secret (optional) hidden tail pocket! If you’re familiar with using invisible zippers you can tackle this addition 🙂 It’s sure to blow people’s minds when they see it! But know that it’s a tricky technique so be sure that you’re confident if you try it. If you skip it the plush comes together just the same.

If you feel intimidated by the whole thing, it might help to know I’m working on a simpler plush backpack without all the extra details for the future ♥ So stay tuned for that if you’d prefer a more basic version 😀


One thing that might help make the project easier is the accompanying embroidery files that are available for purchase as well 😀 It has two different eye styles, available for both the small and large backpack. In addition there’s a set of other sizes for use with different projects should you want to. All the included files fit within a 4” x 4” embroidery hoop so all sizes are covered.

To celebrate its launch, the pattern will be at 30% off for the first weekend — from now until April 1st (no fools here ♥)! And the embroidery 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! Stacking Dragon Plush ♥

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

After releasing the loaf-style Lion, Tiger, & Bear stacking plushies last year in April, I had a bunch of requests to do a dragon version, so here it is! I had the toughest time deciding which face I liked, and I ended up making a kitty dragon version because in the sketches it was just too cute!
Just like the last one, it has an interesting shape in that the arms and legs are splayed out in front instead of to the side. A lot of y-seams are involved in making it, but once you get the hang of the steps it actually goes rather fast.

One thing that might help is the accompanying embroidery files that are available for purchase as well 😀 It has two different faces, one for the more angular classic dragon eyes, and one for the snarky side eyes. The listing comes with the separate eyes and faces at tons of different sizes so you can use them for this plush or a different project entirely.

To celebrate its launch, the pattern will be at 30% off for the first weekend! And the embroidery 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 Item & Sale! Fairy Tale Collection Embroidery!

Hey everyone!
For those of you with embroidery machines, I’m slowly but surely adding more files for my paid patterns for sale 😀 For this next update I thought I should tackle my most popular patterns – the ones in my Fairy Tale Collection. That includes the Laying Dragon, Sitting Dragon, Peryton, Unicorn/Pegasus, Phoenix, and Griffin.

Just like with my other files so far, these bundles include the embroidery to use specifically with the partner pattern along with instructions. And they include standalone eye files in 7 sizes that you can use them with other projects. They’re also useful if you only have a 4” x 4” embroidery hoop and want to embroider the eyes separately. The main point is you don’t have to buy the pattern to use the embroidery and vice versa ❤

The files are bundled together at a discount just like the sewing patterns 😀 And all the files are 50% off for this weekend, so you have your pick! In addition, the partner patterns are 30% off so you can buy them together if this is your first time seeing them. I hope these new files help with your plush-making!

Free (Crochet) Pattern Friday! Jellyfish Amigurumi

I’m back with another crochet pattern! For you stitchers out there I did a variation on the octopus pattern to give him a little friend 🙂 These jellyfishes have the octopus body with added frills and curly tentacles. As an extra accessory, you can make them bows or a fun little flower!
Just like the octopus, it can be made with about 100 yds. Of DK or light worsted yarn. Or you could size up to bulky yarn for a larger plush. And like the octopus, it has both charts and written instructions.
I hope you all enjoy it!

New Shop Pattern! Floppy Dragon Plush

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

Over the past year, I had a lot of interest in a pattern for a floppy plush. I imagine that could mean different things for different people, such as something like a beanie baby. But I got it in my head to try something that’s posable. So I tried it out on a dragon first, to see if I could make one with weighted arms and legs so you could pose it in different ways. And I’m super excited with how it turned out!

The new pattern is for this small dragon plush that’s the perfect size for flopping around in your hands. It has extra poly pellets in its arms, legs, and body so it can sit up on its own or flop down on its belly. The limbs are posable and expressive, so it’s fun to see what kind of looks you can achieve. In some cases, I’ve even been able to get it on all fours ❤ Keep in mind of course that it poses best on a rough surface, such as a tablecloth, unfinished wood, etc.
And for an extra fun twist, the templates included are for elemental themed dragons – including earth, air, water, and fire. So you can mix them up for something unique, or go with a more classic dragon look.

The main downside of the pattern is that it’s trickier to sew :/ Definitely my hardest plush pattern so far at 7/10 in difficulty. All the extra bits, like the spikes, claws, and ears, are very detailed and tedious. On top of that, the head is sewn on by hand and takes some careful positioning. So this might be a little daunting for beginners, but I couldn’t help wanting to share it anyway.

To celebrate its launch, I’ll be offering it at 30% off for the first weekend! I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!

Free Pattern Friday! Love Dragon Plush

Hey everyone!
Being February you just know I had to do something themed for Valentine’s Day, but when I saw how close it was to the Chinese Lunar New Year I got especially excited! I tried to come up with a project that combined both ideas, and landed on a cute Eastern style dragon plush holding a tiny heart. Not too dissimilar from Valentine’s teddy bears, but I thought it was a cute twist 😀
The pattern also comes with templates to make it a Western style dragon as well, with wings and horns instead of antlers and whiskers. Either way, it’s slightly different from other dragons I’ve done because it has a more prominent snout and tiny little ears. All the small details do add up to a bit of hand sewing and careful stitching, so I’ve rated it 4/10 in difficulty.
I hope it will make a fun project for you all over this last weekend before V-day! ❤

And there’s a bonus! As some of you may know, I don’t usually do embroidery because my old machine was on the fritz for many years (and I just really love applique so much you guys, haha). Well, I finally got one this past Christmas so I’m ready to start sharing embroidery files to go with my patterns! I usually only made them for myself, so I hope they stitch out well for you. Do let me know if there are any issues so I can make them better for future projects!

P.S. If you’d like to see some behind-the-scenes work on the making of this plush, check out my Patreon! For just $1 a month, subscribers get all of my free patterns one week early. And the perks have been expanded so you’ll now get more behind-the-scenes posts as well 😀

Black Friday Sale & New Chibi Dragon Plush Pattern!

Hi everybody! And Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends 😀

Starting today, I’m running a Thanksgiving/Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale all the way through to the 27th!

There are discounts on patterns as well as my ready-to-ship plushies & hats

And to kick it off, I’ve added a new steampunk critter pattern to the growing family!

An adorable chibi dragon ❤ Just like the other critters it has a cute big head and little body. But I’m a big fan of the side head spikes and the big accent horns. It also has all the other classic dragon features, like almond-shaped eyes, wings, claws, and a spiky dragon tail.

And of course no steampunk adventurer would be complete without accessories! It also comes with a separate .pdf showing how to make a matching scarf, top hat, goggles, eye patch, belt pouch, and even a removable vest with special hole for the wings to peek through.
Of course you can also use the pattern to make a classic dragon, and it still remains just as big and huggable.
I hope this sale will help you all with your holiday shopping and crafting!
