Sew Desu Ne?

The Monthly Crafting Challenge

Are you up for a year-long challenge? With the promise of cute sewing patterns? Then read on!

★ How to start: ★
To earn your FIRST sewing pattern, sign up for email updates to my blog (through the sign up bar on the right side of the screen). As thanks for subscribing to my blog I’ll send you ONE legendary animal plush sewing pattern!

(You’ll be getting an email from, so check your spam folder if necessary. Also keep in mind that if you follow me through WordPress your email won’t get sent to me. So you can email me to get the ball rolling if necessary.)

★ Already signed up? ★
Every month on the 1st I announce a new pattern prize that’s up for grabs. So to earn ADDITIONAL sewing patterns beyond your one-time freebie, I give you my challenge!

You can earn ANOTHER plush pattern by making projects from my blog, my books, or my Etsy. Then email or message the pictures to my Facebook page (so I can respond back with the .pdf :D).

★ The year-long challenge: ★
So with this system, just send me photos of your projects when you want the current month’s pattern ^-^ You can wait to participate until you see a pattern you like or collect every pattern for the whole year! It’s as simple as that! Make cute stuff, get free patterns!

If you want to catch up on previous months, you can find past patterns for sale in my Etsy store for a very reasonable price.
There’s also the collection of punny food animals from 2015, Japanese snack foods from 2014, and the sushi plush patterns from 2013!

So there you have it! My challenge to you for the year of 2016, make something super cute every month and I’ll reward you handsomely😀
Still have more questions? Perhaps the FAQ can help you out!

Check out the prize for this month!

  1. I signed up and I got the email it was cnfurmed but… How do I get the Nessie pattern? I. Love. Nessie. So I really excited but there is not pattern or link. Help? Thanks.

  2. Dankeschön für alles

  3. I’m having the same problem. I can’t wait to start Nessie.

  4. What an adorable plushie and such a great tutorial, it will be a joy to sew a Nessie😀
    I’m glad I signed up. I received the pattern very fast too!

  5. How long does it take to receive the Nessie pattern? I confirmed the email already

  6. I just signed up… When will I have the Phoenix pattern?
    I’m exited about the contest🙂

  7. The griffon was just too cute! I signed up right away, then headed directly to the nearest fabric shop😄 No brown or grey fleece available, so I’m afraid he’ll have to be black and white. It could be worse I suppose, they could’ve had no natural colours and I’d have had to use blue and neon green I had from old projects!

  8. I signed up for last month and still haven’t received it:/

  9. How do I sign up? Do I just leave my Email here? If so, my email is

  10. Do I leave my email in “Follow Blog Via Email”? Cause if so, I never received the email for last month. (March). Thanks!

  11. May I ask how did you redirect your portfolio page to your DA? Oh btw I realized I have never gotten any pattern to my email, and I have been subscribing for awhile. I’d like to have the Griffon pattern please. Haven’t sewn in awhile so this would be great for practice. my email is judithchen(at) Thank you!🙂

    • For the redirect; it just works like a regular link🙂 The WordPress theme I use allows me to add links for the header and I just put in my dA page for that link.
      And I’m sorry you didn’t get your subscription pattern! I didn’t see your name in my subscriber list, but sometimes WordPress does mess things up like that:/ Nevertheless I’ve sent the newest pattern to you so hopefully you got it okay!

      • thank you for your kind reply🙂 unfortunately it doesn’t seem to work with my WP theme, also with the menu setting. Ah that’s alright, I love the Gryphon and will try it out after I can get a hand of the right colors. Thank you so much! Btw, yeah WP does that sometimes, yesterday I also got a new sub but no notification at all.

  12. Thank you so much for the griffon pattern! I had to order some minky from the other side of the planet, but I had the right stuff to finish his head so far and it’s so cute! This is an amazing set of patterns! And so far, the griffon instructions are really good and nice to follow :3

  13. Just wondering, but would I be able to receive a previous months pattern please and if so how? I seriously love the Nessie, dragons and the Kraken patterns of yours.

  14. I have been looking for a reason not to get rid of all my sewing stuff. I will take this year challenge.
    Thank you.

  15. You are so generous!! Thank you so much for making the previous months patterns available for purchase for us late comers. I don’t think there’s anything worse than seeing adorable projects that one can’t make because they didn’t know about them in time. I can’t wait for start making some of these!!

  22. Hey!! I signed up a few days ago and still haven’t gotten the yeti pattern! I received the confirmation email. Is there anything else I need to do?

    • Oh no!:/ I’m sorry you didn’t get your pattern! I didn’t see your email on my subscriber list, but then sometimes WordPress does fail me like that. Thank you for checking up on it so I can get you your pattern, and thank you for your understanding!🙂
