Free Pattern Friday! Otter Plush

Hey everybody!
I’m fulfilling another highly requested animal today with this sweet huggable otter 😀 I found this one to be tricky to design, since I knew I wanted it lying on its back so it could hold a shell for all to see. But its tail often got in the way of that pose. It took a lot of attempts but I think I like the result!

They don’t have a lot of pieces, so they come together rather quickly. The head and shell are sewn on by hand, so that’s a little tricky, but altogether I’d call it a solid 3/10 in difficulty.
You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. The files only need a 4” x 4” hoop! Included is the face as well as the little shell, which has cute little accent lines and is sewn in-the-hoop style to save some time ❤

Halloween sale! Plus more embroidery!

Hey everyone!
I just wanted to pop in and mention I’m having a Halloween sale! With just 2 weeks left, now’s a good time to get started on last minute projects or put in final online orders. The sale runs from October 17th through the 21st. All items are 10% off, and all Halloween items are 20% off — that includes anything wearable, spooky, or that can dress up! It also includes the Steampunk Aviator Cap pattern from last week, so you have a second chance to grab it at a discount!

As an extra bonus, one of my older patterns now has accompanying embroidery!

The Chibi Horror Plush collection can now be sewn with all kinds of embroidered details. This not only includes the faces for all 5 animals, but also in-the-hoop sewing for the tiny Werewolf claws, in-the-hoop sewing for the Zombunny ears, and applique for the skull bunny! The faces also come in standalone versions at loads of different sizes should you want to use them for a different project or just fit things into a smaller hoop. The main point is you don’t have to buy the pattern to use the embroidery and vice versa ❤

The new files are 50% off during the sale, and the partner pattern is 30% off if you don’t own it already 😀

I hope you all enjoy and have some fun Halloween preparation! I know I am!

Free Pattern Friday! Rat Plush

Hi everyone!

Between the people who own cute rats as pets and those noticing that the year after next is the Chinese Year of the Rat, I was getting a lot of suggestions for a rat plush! I thought it might be fun to share it during October so I could do both a sweet version and a scary version like the Owl plush from last year.

So these sweet little rat babies have both a cute face to choose from and a creepy face – complete with bitten ear and eye scar! I’m sure one of them is bound to get you excited to sew ❤

They don’t have a lot of pieces, so they come together rather quickly. The neck is a little tricky so I’ve rated it a 3/10, but it might feel more like a 2 to some.

You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. Both faces only need a 4” x 4” hoop, so no one is left out! ❤ I hope you all like it!

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. The group is modeled after Halloween candy! So there’s candy corn, caramel apple, pumpkin, and chocolate (with bat sprinkles ♥)!

New Shop Pattern! Chibi Human Doll Plush

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

As promised, I finally have a human doll pattern! It was probably my most requested pattern to add to my collection, so I hope you all enjoy how it turned out ❤ It took a lot of trial and error, but I’m really happy with the result.
It has some similarities in the body to the Anthro doll from last month, and that’s so the two can share clothes! This pattern comes with a casual clothes collection, featuring a cuffed sweater, dress, underwear, socks, shoes, and shorts. But they can also wear the cape and backpack from the Anthro Doll pattern.
It comes with loads of different hair styles too, including several styles for flat hair as well as a Mohawk and hair you can sew in locks. With these locks you can braid the hair into many really intricate looks. And to top it off there are 3 different ear styles, including a classic human ear, elf ears, and cat ears so you can make kitty people!

Like the anthro dolls, the hardest part of the plush is definitely the arms, though unfortunately that’s what helps them hang down instead of outward. But if you were able to tackle them with the anthro dolls then these won’t be much different.
One thing that might help is this pattern has some accompanying embroidery files you can purchase! The two styles of eyes are available together in one pack. The lashed eyes are a bit wider and can only fit 5” x 7” hoops, but the non-lashed eyes are just narrow enough to fit in 4” x 4” hoops. But the design pack also includes standalone eyes and faces in case you want to put them on a different plush.

To celebrate its launch, the pattern will be 30% off for the first weekend, and the embroidery files will be 50% off! I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!

Free Pattern Friday! Ferret Plush

Hi everyone!
I had a lot of requests for a ferret for the last year or so, so I’m really glad I could finally take a crack at it 😀 It was a lot of fun coming up with a design that showcased the elongated body while still keeping some chibi features. I especially love the tiny feet on the ends of the stumpy legs.

It doesn’t have a lot of pieces, so it comes together quickly. All in all I’ve rated it a 3/10. The only part where I had trouble was cutting the wrong side of the feet to turn them right side out. If you actually pay attention (like I didn’t, haha!) you should have no trouble 😀

You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. The face needs at least a 5” x 7” hoop and has a cute applique face mask. Both feet actually fit into a 4” x 4” hoop because they’re so tiny. And since they’re so tiny I also set up the file to sew them in the hoop as well. ❤ I hope you all like it!

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 did a galaxy and a red panda version that were just too much fun!

New Shop Pattern! Woodland Witches Anthro Dolls

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

I’ve gotten a lot of requests for more dolls, so before I jump into humans I thought I’d try my own version of an Anthropomorphic doll 🙂 It’s similar to the standing animal plush I did previously, but these are little less chibi and have longer limbs and a more clearly defined neck. The shape of the head has a more classic animal shape than the big round heads that I usually do.
Their longer silhouette means they look very nice dressed up, so for this first batch I thought I’d go with a witchy theme! The pattern includes templates to make a hooded cape, witch’s hat, and a leaf backpack. It also has templates for little felt details like flowers, wings, and leaves.
With that said, you can use the clothes from this pattern for the standing animal as well! Though the hoodie from the standing animal pattern is for smaller arms, so that’s a bit of a tight fit.

The hardest part of the plush is definitely the arms, though unfortunately that’s what helps them hang down instead of stick outward. So if you didn’t have a lot of trouble with the arms on the standing plush pattern, then this one won’t be too bad for you. All in all, I get a lot of requests for more plushies that are almost completely machine-sewn, which made the arms difficult. But on the bright side it means it comes together a lot faster once you get the hang of it!

One thing that might help is this pattern has some accompanying embroidery files you can purchase! All 4 eye designs are available together in a pack. The design pack comes with a files suited specifically for the plush and also standalone files that you can use for other plushies should you choose. The ones meant for the plush can fit either on a 4×4 hoop (if you’re doing a fox style plush with a muzzle), or a 5×7 hoop (if you’re doing a full face like the cat).

To celebrate its launch, the pattern will be 30% off for the first weekend, and the embroidery files will be 50% off! I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!
