Flower Pixie Vest. One size - S/M. It's made in rounds from the center back and fastened with ties at the bust. It has a row of a cute flower motif. You can see other ones made in a solid color and alternating rows of color here.
Fairy Hooded Vest. One size - S/M. It's crocheted from the center back in the round and then worked in rows. A main floral motif in the back and the rest is plain stitch--perfect for showing off pretty variegated yarns. The hood is seamed and oversized (easy to shorten or lengthen!).
I have more flower designs in the works (not vests!) and hopefully will get those written up in the next few months.
My copyright note in the pattern says "Pattern is for personal use only. Please don't redistribute/resell the pattern in any way or form."
It means you can't resell the pattern or share the contents of the pattern such as making copies for friends, posting the pattern instructions online for free (if pattern is already free, linking to the pattern is preferred over reposting the content), and clearly showing the pattern instructions in a video or photo.
I decided to make a favorites list on Etsy of other's creations made from my patterns. I'll be redirecting those that are interested in buying to that list and they can choose who to buy from. :)
Owl Amigurumi by SimplyWoodlandKnits
Fox Amigurumi by BramaCrochet
Sleepy Fox Baby Hat by CKBsHandicrafts
To get on the list, you just need to put something like "Pattern by Adorably Kawaii" in your listings. (It's so I can be certain that the pattern used is actually mine and that it's not freehand or someone else's similar looking design.)

The patterns on Craftsy are instant downloads and not hard copy patterns. When you download or purchase a pattern, it automatically gets saved to your Craftsy Pattern Library.
You can find the patterns you downloaded or purchased by going to "My Patterns" which is found on the left sidebar under "My Craftsy".
To download the file, find the pattern you want to download and click on the image. Or you can click on the little download icon after the pattern name.
Just below the image, it says "Contact Info" to encourage you to contact the designer if you need any help with the pattern or have any comments.
Sometimes the file may not download correctly. If it's a PDF file, make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Reader. Or if it's a ZIP file, make sure you have the right program to open them such as WinRar, WinZip, or 7-Zip. Then try downloading the file again in a different browser such as Chrome or Firefox. If it still doesn't work, you should email Craftsy at email@example.com or contact the pattern designer for assistance.
If you find anything confusing in a pattern or any errors, please do contact the pattern designer so they can fix it. If you don't bring it to their attention, they won't know.
If you have any other problems, you can go to the Help Center and hopefully your solution will be found in there. If not, email Craftsy.

I reopened my Etsy shop. I decided to change it to instant download patterns only. I took down the listings for the pattern bundles that I email out. I don't really go on the computer anymore so that makes it difficult to get the patterns out in a timely manner. So for bundles, discounts are automatically applied on Ravelry at checkout.
Owl Rug Pattern:
I've been getting asked a lot of questions about the Owl Rug pattern and I'm sorry that I can't help much. I only made it once and it involved a bit of improvisation so I didn't keep track of all the stitch counts. And I'm not sure about how much yarn I used because I mainly used leftover balls.
I'm planning on making another one (with bulky yarn) to figure out how much yarn is used and get more detailed notes on the rounds/rows. I'll probably make it after the holidays.
There are some patterns that I definitely want to get out eventually. One being the Pink Flamingo but I have to redo it because I made some parts too complicated and I want to simplify it a bit. There's also another knit version pattern I started working on last year that I'd like to finish.
But for the other designs I've posted, I'm not really in a rush to get those patterns out unless there's a high demand for them. Let me know what you'd like~!

I'm still alive~ and can be reached by email. ;)
Just wanted to put up an official note!
I had plans to write up the rest of my patterns but I don't know if I'll actually get around to doing that for years. I might come back to toys someday!!
