Free Pattern Friday! Pikachu Pouch

Hi everyone! Today’s freebie is sort of a mini project 😀 there’ll be a bigger one in two weeks ❤ I feel like this pattern is a bit of a tease because I’ve been asked to do a Pikachu plush but instead you guys get its backside, haha! I wanted to try something to dabble in the Corgi butt craze. I believe you can buy … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday! Pikachu Pouch

Free Pattern Friday! Kitty Wallet

Hi everyone! While I was revamping my old Kitty Purse pattern I thought it might be fun to make a matching wallet to go with it! It’s got the same cute simple kitty ear silhouette with appliqued whiskers that made the original purse so popular. The inside of the wallet has slots for bills/receipts, 6 credit card pockets, and a pouch built in that’s big … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday! Kitty Wallet

Free Pattern Friday! Maneki Neko Coin Pouch

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 … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday!

Free Pattern Friday! Squid Pencil Pouch

So after playing around with the squid/Kraken plush I made back in January, I couldn’t help but want to make more squiddy projects 🙂 So I came up with this little pencil pouch – it utilizes the tall shape of the squid to offer up a good 8” x 4” storage size for holding a handful of pens and pencils. Of course you could use … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday! Squid Pencil Pouch

Free Pattern Friday! Zippered Sketch Wallet

My boyfriend recently got a sketch wallet for himself — in leather no less — to hold just a few sketching essentials. Namely a Moleskine and a pencil and pen. Sometimes if the mood suits him he’ll throw in his ID and a few important credit cards so he can completely sustain himself on this wallet alone. Needless to say, I got super jealous and … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday! Zippered Sketch Wallet

Free Pattern Friday! Ragged Strip Pouch

Hello everyone! This week I’ve got another fun patchwork pouch pattern like some of the ones I’ve shown before. It really helped me use up some of my quilting cotton stash, and I love the finished look of them! They’re patched together with lots of skinny strips and the seam allowances are left raw and exposed. It gives it this lovely frayed edge look that … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday!

Freebie Pattern Friday! Leather Dice Bag

Today’s project is a little off the beaten path for me, but the motivation was about the same as always xD Part of my overwhelming fabric stash actually included some bits of leather. I was wracking my brain trying to figure out how I could use it, but it didn’t seem to go with any of the other fabrics I had so I was pretty … Continue reading Freebie Pattern Friday! Leather Dice Bag

Free Pattern Friday! Ruffled Strip Clutch

Today I have another addition to my arsenal of tiny patchwork projects! This time it makes use of super small patchwork strips. So if you’re the kind that holds onto even the littlest fabric bits then you’re in luck! As you’ll see from the dimensions of the project, this one’s a little tiny and dainty, probably best for holding onto a few essentials during a … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday!

Pattern Hack! Make a Plush Pea Pod Family!

Tut004
I recently modified my Chick Pea plush pattern into this little snuggly family of peas to give to my friend 😀

You guys remember the Chick Peas plush pattern I featured in March, right? Of course you do!
201503

If you’ve purchased the pattern or earned yours during March, then you can use this hack to modify the plush into a zipped pouch! In the following tutorial, I’ll show you what new supplies to purchase and how you need to change the pattern you already have to make a pea pod family zip pouch instead of the snuggly chick peas.

The story behind this goes that a little bit back one of my very closest friends announced she was pregnant! She wanted to have a gender reveal party and announce the new arrival via plush! >w< So I was lucky enough to get the honor of making the family of peas in a zippered pea pod pouch for the reveal ^-^ In the end, the new arrival turned out to be a boy, so the middle pea was decorated with a little blue newsboy cap. Unfortunately I had to make it at the last moment so that’s not included in the tutorial here ^^; But this family of peas would be a lovely gift for a baby shower or perhaps a Mother or Father’s Day gift.
