Free Pattern Friday! Narwhal Plush

Hi everyone! I got a couple of requests for this pattern, but more than anything I just wanted to make it so my Dolphin Plush could have a little friend ❤


A little palm-sized narwhal!

There’s something so special about having a whole multi-colored set of them 😀 And because they’re so tiny and made with so little fabric, they’re perfect for using up scraps – that’s definitely what I did! At an adorable palm size, you can hide them in all the little nooks and crannies in your house ❤
Much like the dolphin, I gave this pattern a 2/10 stars. It would be perfect for a sewist that’s only made a few plushies before. And if you left off the spiral horn and made it into a regular whale it’s even easier!
I hope you guys like it!

Free Pattern Friday! Mewnicorn Pillow Plush


Today’s pattern isn’t so much a direct response to requests I had been getting, only in that people have been asking for more cats! I can’t blame them, haha ❤
I was toying with the idea of a unicorn cat so I could include another horrible pun 😛
This one is a really simple but big plush so it could double as a pillow if you keep it on your bed or couch. It has a sweet and pretty kitty face with additional accent bangs and tail that give it its unicorn features. Not to mention the fun spiral horn on top. It has tiny little front and back paws to finish off the look.
I gave this a difficulty of 3/10 because of all the tiny details, but if you made a plain kitty I would probably rate it lower. So a pretty simple pattern overall 🙂
I hope you all enjoy it!

New Crafting Challenge Pattern for September!

Hey everyone!
Wow! It’s already September! The rest of the year is just flying by 😀 But it’s been a great one so far. I’ve had so much fun designing all of the legendary creatures for this year. I can’t believe it’s nearly over. But on the bright side, October is coming up, and that means Halloween! I have so much planned for that I can’t wait!

But! Onto more plushie related business! There’s a new pattern to be had – and I’m sure many of your were eagerly awaiting for it…

A Unicorn! (and Pegasus, technically)

I know a lot of your were requesting one or both of these guys 🙂 And goodness knows I had it planned from the get go – you can’t skip unicorns! I had to make sure that had my own chibi simple spin on them so they fit with the group and don’t venture into My Little Pony territory. They have detailed wings, a cute little mane and tail, and (probably my favorite), brightly lashed eyes.

As for difficulty, once again the head is sewn on by hand, so some dexterity and skill in positioning is helpful. The mane is sewn into the back seam of the head and even creeps into the front of the head as well. So you’ll be sewing some opposing curved edges, which is a little tricky. Also the ‘hooves’ are very tiny circles. That’s a little tough to sew on machine, but you could also do it by hand. With all that in mind, I gave it a 4/10 stars in difficulty.

If you think you can’t make anything this month, you’re in for an extra treat! I wanted to include more of the many equine creatures found in fairy tales and folklore, so I added them to the paid pattern. It’s ready for purchase on my Etsy for a very low price. And you can use coupon code MCC2016 for an extra $1 off.

In it you’ll find two extra equine creatures: a kelpie and hippocampus. That is a horse creature with a fish tail – either with a fish dorsal fin or wings. It makes it quite the huge pattern, and it’s only available as part of the paid collection!
