Free Pattern Friday! Maneki Neko Coin Pouch

prj094
Last year during my legendary creatures collection, I seriously considered doing a Maneki Neko. It doesn’t quite fit as a legendary creature though, since it’s more like a symbol. Either way though, I brought it back! Since ‘Beckoning Cats’ or ‘Lucky Cats,’ as they’re often called, are said to bring in good fortune and money, I thought it was fitting to make them into little coin pouches! Maybe there are some out there with New Year’s resolutions to save money?

The body of this pouch is made from minky so it has a plush-like quality, but any thick fabric would work well for it 🙂 Much like with the squid pouch I designed earlier, you could also leave off the zipper and stuff it with batting to make it into a tiny plush! The pattern itself is rated 4/10 stars in difficulty because of the zipper and all the little details needed to pull together the Lucky Cat look – including all the applique spots, collar, ears, paw, and tiny bell to finish it off. If you were making a simpler cat it would be a little more manageable 😀
I hope you guys will give it a try!

Free Pattern Friday! Neko Atsume Plush

Neko Atsume Plush sewing pattern by Sew Desu Ne?

So I bet a lot of you have discovered Neko Atsume (Kitty Collector) by now. I’m quite hooked myself so I just had to do some fanart to show my love for the game 😀 I whipped up some of my favorite kitties in plush form to have them around. The pattern utilizes a super simple sphere-like shape with a few twists. I could see it being really easy to adapt into other characters – I’m tempted to make a Luna, Artemis, and Diana trio myself!

In the meantime, I hope you all enjoy this pattern! I’ve given it a 2/10 stars, and even though it calls for some darts and curved sewing, I could see it as a great project if you’re a plush maker wanting to break out into something more complex 🙂
