2018 Year in Review!

Hi everyone!
I hope you’re all have a great season as this year comes to a close ❤ We’re coming up on the blog being 5 years old now! I can’t believe how much it’s grown over this time, and I can’t wait to see how it progresses.
In the meantime, I thought I would make a top ten list of the most popular posts from this year as a fun look back. And maybe if you’re new to the site or missed a post you’ll see something you didn’t know about!

The sloth plush made it to #1! I love this little guy — it has so much character in such a simple body ♥

My favorite part of the year was definitely finally introducing embroidery designs into my free patterns! Although it’s a lot of work, it was very satisfying to get to see the designs come together in thread. It’s my 2019 resolution to get completely caught up with the most popular past designs!
I was surprised that the octopus amigurumi made it to the list ❤ I know there are a lot of other great amigurumi pattern-makers out there, so I can’t really compete. But I find illustrating the charts to be challenging and fun. And I will be the first to admit I have a yarn-buying problem, so finding uses for it is always good 😀
I was also surprised that the Hooded Cowl made it onto the list 🙂 I always enjoy taking a break from plush-making for some cute accessories. I have some ideas for more Halloween-themed wearables next year, hopefully they’ll get just as much love!
Thank you for all the amazing suggestions for patterns over the year! I’ve heard a lot of really great ones, like a shark, T-rex, seal, alpaca, etc. I’m always open to hear suggestions though, so don’t be afraid to mention something in the comments. Thank you all so much for being fans of my blog and my work! I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for all of you! I hope you enjoy what’s to come in 2019!

Etsy Spring Sale!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to drop a quick line to mention the Etsy Spring Sale going on for the next week 🙂 You might have already heard from my Facebook and other social media.

Etsy sellers can choose to participate, so I’m offering my whole shop at 10% off, and as a special bonus, spring-themed items like birds and bunnies are 20% off 😀 So I hope you all enjoy your pre-Easter shopping!

2017 Year in Review!

Hi everyone! To those that celebrated, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! And I hope you all are looking forward to ringing in the new year as well ❤
2017 has been crazy fun for new patterns and projects 😀 We got to have 2 plush-making contests that were a blast, lots of giveaways and free promotions, and of course tons of free sewing patterns. I thought I’d make a top ten list of the most popular posts from this past year as a fun look back.


Of course Toothless makes it to #1 It was insanely popular thanks to all of you — and so much fun for me to make 😀

I had a lot of fun personally getting to do so many infographics, so I’m really happy one of them made it on the list 😀 My other favorite part of 2017 was planning so much stuff for Halloween season ❤ I’m sure other crafters & bloggers out there can agree that coming up with lots of content is tough, so I’m glad I got the chance to go all out during September and October. I hope to do the same again in 2018.
As for what else to expect in 2018? I’ve considered all the wonderful suggestions and ideas you all have sent me through the year and am excited to implement them 😀 These include at least one more infographic, more dragons, some foxes, axolotls, a Chocobo, and possibly ferrets/weasels. As always, I'm open to suggestions in the comments!

Thank you everyone so much for staying with my little blog up until now ❤ I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for all of you! I hope you enjoy what’s to come in 2018!

Assembling .pdf Paper Patterns

Nearly all of my free sewing projects on this blog come with a printable pattern. Some even require multiple sheets to be taped together. I try to make the format similar to other websites in case you’ve used .pdf patterns in the past. But if you’re new to .pdf patterns or are otherwise having issues, here’s how to assemble them!
