Free Pattern Friday! Kero-chan & Suppi Plush

Hi everybody!
As some long-time fans may know, I have made some Cardcaptor Sakura patterns in the past 😀 And since the new series has been out I’ve gotten a lot of requests to make these little guys ❤ So I finally gave it a go! With this one pattern you can make either Kero-chan or Suppi! Ready to go on card capturing adventures.

They both have huge ears and cute little faces as well as puffy wings and floppy bodies that can sit up if you put beans in their bottom. Sewing the arms, wings, and tail gets a little crowded when doing the body, so I rated this one a 4/10 in difficulty. But there’s a tip in the instructions to help you through it ♥ The ears sewn partially into the head darts accounts for the rating too, but you could also just fold the ears instead.

You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. Both faces are small enough to sew entirely in a 4" x 4" hoop so no one is left out!

New Shop Pattern! Fawn & Unicorn Plush

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

Last year I did a set of fox and hare plushies that were specifically designed as a chibi style animal that stands on four legs 😀 Since then I’ve been thinking it would work well for a deer too. I found they also looked especially cute for a unicorn — particularly a more delicate-looking unicorn like one from The Last Unicorn (one of my favorite old animated movies!). So I took a leap and developed the rest ❤ There are lots of horns, wings, manes, and tails to choose from so you can make a really fun and unique unicorn! But my favorite addition is the little flower garland you can make to wrap around the horns or antlers ❤
Just like the fox and hare, they’re a bit tricky to sew because of the belly gusset. But each point is numbered and labeled to help you through it precisely.

One thing that might help is the accompanying embroidery files that are available for purchase as well 😀 It has two different eyes, one for big bright open eyes and another for a closed eye with eyelashes. 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 up through the 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 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!

Free Pattern Friday! Penguin Plush

Hey everyone!

I technically already created a penguin plush back in March of 2015 when I did Gunter from Adventure Time. But I was still getting requests for a penguin, haha! 😀 So I figured I should tackle a more classic penguin look, possibly with a different pose? Which is where my friend had the idea to make it look like it’s sliding on its belly! The idea seemed too cute to pass up ❤

The pattern itself doesn’t have a lot of pieces, so the penguins come together rather quickly 😀 The most difficult part is sewing the bottom, as there are some curves involved. But if you take it slow it’s not quite so bad. Altogether I’d call it a 3/10 in difficulty.

You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. The version of the face which includes applique for the top point needs a 5” x 7” hoop. But I’ve also included an amended 4” x 4” version without the applique and blush marks which still gets the job done 😀 I hope you all like it!

Holiday Sale! And New Squirrel Beanie Plush Pattern!

Hello everyone!
I heard from some that they missed my Thanksgiving sale, so I thought I’d run one more sale of the year for those last-minute holiday shoppers ♥

Everything is 10% off, and this time around all small, stocking stuffer kind of items are 20% off 😀 And that’s to celebrate my latest pattern that should be great for a quick gift!

These cute squirrels and sugar gliders! It’s a classic beanie-style plush with a body that’s filled with poly pellets. It makes it tons of fun for tossing around or just holding in your hand.
The twist I’ve given these is that the pieces are super-optimized! If you plan to make these to sell or give, they go really quickly because there’s almost no hand-sewing. It’s only the spot under the neck that needs to be sewn up to close these plushies.

And because they are so tiny, appliqueing the face is even more of a challenge than usual. Safety eyes would of course be a great alternative, but I thought it fair to include some embroidered eyes with the pattern at no extra cost. They fit 4″ x 4″ hoops so no one is left out!

This new pattern will be 30% off during the sale to celebrate the launch! I hope you’ll give it a look if you think it would make a nice gift for someone ♥ And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!
Happy holidays everyone!

Free Pattern Friday! Fox Plush

Hello everybody!

It’s crazy to think that after all these years I still haven’t done a fox plush! It’s such a classic animal, but I suppose I wanted to be sure I was giving you all something I hadn’t seen before and is also relatively easy ❤ After a good bit of testing and trials I landed on this design of a tiny little hand-held fox with a big wrapping tail!

The pattern itself doesn’t have a lot of pieces, so the foxes come together rather quickly 😀 To get the curve of the tail, it has some double-ended darts, which is likely the most difficult part. Sewing it won’t look pretty until the tail is finally done 😛 But despite all that I’d still call it a 3/10.

You can sew all the features with fusible web applique or using the embroidery files I’ve included below. In it are the files for the face, which uses applique for the muzzle. There’s also the ears, which has cute little applique fluffs. To make things easier the ears are sewn in-the-hoop – so they’re ready to attach to your head once they come out of the machine! Both files are sized to fit 4” x 4” embroidery hoops too! I hope you all enjoy!


I made some cut & sew versions for Spoonflower too! So you can skip all the applique and embroidery because all the faces and pattern notes are printed right on the fabric ♥ There’s a classic orange and gray fox as well as a fun icy arctic blue and galaxy fox 😀
