Black Friday Sale & New Chibi Dragon Plush Pattern!

Hi everybody! And Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends 😀

Starting today, I’m running a Thanksgiving/Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale all the way through to the 27th!

There are discounts on patterns as well as my ready-to-ship plushies & hats

And to kick it off, I’ve added a new steampunk critter pattern to the growing family!

An adorable chibi dragon ❤ Just like the other critters it has a cute big head and little body. But I’m a big fan of the side head spikes and the big accent horns. It also has all the other classic dragon features, like almond-shaped eyes, wings, claws, and a spiky dragon tail.

And of course no steampunk adventurer would be complete without accessories! It also comes with a separate .pdf showing how to make a matching scarf, top hat, goggles, eye patch, belt pouch, and even a removable vest with special hole for the wings to peek through.
Of course you can also use the pattern to make a classic dragon, and it still remains just as big and huggable.
I hope this sale will help you all with your holiday shopping and crafting!

Freebie Friday! The 20,000 Leagues Journal

Probably even more obscure than some of the other nerdy holidays I’ve been celebrating, today is International Steampunk Day! I can’t seem to find why today in particular is Steampunk Day, as some have claimed that today is H.G. Wells’ birthday – though it’s not – but there you have it! I sorted through all of my scraps to and put together the best I could with what I have.
At the moment I don’t have a lot of hardware, which you must admit can really help the look of a steampunk item, so I did the best with what I had and looked to some leftover turn-lock closures to make this next project. I started thinking of some of my favorite Jules Verne books and thought a journal cover with a giant squid a la 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea would be a nice fit ^-^ It’s not exactly scientific, but it’s sure adventurous! It’s sized to fit a standard composition book, so you can continually switch out the book once you’ve filled it up with all your epic stories and start fresh! On top of that, there are 8 pencil slots so you could also sketch to your heart’s content as well ^w^!

Freebie Friday: The Scientist’s Satchel

Well, check this out 😀 I’ve gone steampunk! I realize despite my nerdishness that I’ve never actually gone out of my way to show how much I love steampunk. But here it is! Granted, this is a very simple rendition of my fandom, since I was limited to just using my scraps, but I’m glad I finally got to do something with an alternate-future flair ^-^ In truth, I’m a huge fan of old school science fiction and always have been from late elementary school, particularly H. G. Wells and Jules Verne. I love the whole aesthetic notion that high-tech science existed in the shadows of the Victorian world.

I’m so very glad that I was able to use up this scraps of fabric 😀 This bag is made from leftovers of a skirt I made back in early college, when I was going for this sort of bohemian look that didn’t quite pan out XD I always thought this faux suede was gorgeous and wanted to find the right use for it, but nothing ever came up because the scraps were too irregularly shaped. Beyond that, the fabric was incredibly hard to sew through despite being lightweight. It’s a strange sewing anomaly I encounter once in a while xB must have something to do with fiber content and thread count.

However, I think this turned out to be a really great looking messenger-style bag with a super-useful front pocket and awesome turn-lock closure. I hope you’ll give it a try with your favorite neo-Victorian fabric ^-~
