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 Item & Sale! Fairy Tale Collection Embroidery!

Hey everyone!
For those of you with embroidery machines, I’m slowly but surely adding more files for my paid patterns for sale 😀 For this next update I thought I should tackle my most popular patterns – the ones in my Fairy Tale Collection. That includes the Laying Dragon, Sitting Dragon, Peryton, Unicorn/Pegasus, Phoenix, and Griffin.

Just like with my other files so far, these bundles include the embroidery to use specifically with the partner pattern along with instructions. And they include standalone eye files in 7 sizes that you can use them with other projects. They’re also useful if you only have a 4” x 4” embroidery hoop and want to embroider the eyes separately. The main point is you don’t have to buy the pattern to use the embroidery and vice versa ❤

The files are bundled together at a discount just like the sewing patterns 😀 And all the files are 50% off for this weekend, so you have your pick! In addition, the partner patterns are 30% off so you can buy them together if this is your first time seeing them. I hope these new files help with your plush-making!

New Crafting Challenge Pattern for November!

Hi everybody!
Wow! I can’t believe it’s November already. I really missed October going by so soon, but I’m also excited about November and the promise of fall weather and some holiday shopping. I hope you all have been having a good autumn season as well! I have lots of fun projects planned for the rest of the year and even a few leading into the new year ❤ But first things first is the next monthly crafting challenge pattern!

A Peryton!
Deer and stags are a common theme in legendary tales and stories, but I knew if did a deer there wouldn’t be much to set it apart from the regular woodland animal. It was with the help of you all that suggested a Peryton that made this possible! By suggesting this hybrid bird/deer I could make a cute deer plush with that mythic spin. Perytons are first mentioned in the Book of Imaginary Beings as a winged deer or bird/deer hybrid. Some variations have bird hind-quarters, but I stuck with the all-deer body for ease. Instead you have your choice of classic deer ears and tail or feathered ones for that extra bird-like touch.

As for difficulty: like with my other ‘beanie’ style plushies, this one has a head that’s sewn on by hand into the crook of the front legs. So that’s a little tricky to do. There’s also some optional top-stitching done on the wings, ears, and tail that add more depth to the plush. With all that in mind, I gave it a 4/10 stars in difficulty.
