Animal Crossing In Real Life

Posted on August 10, 2020 by

I sometimes wish I could wake up one morning in my cute home on Neptune, my Animal Crossing New Horizons island. If you feel the same way, here’s some game items you can buy or make in real life.

Animal Crossing fish pochette pattern

The fish pochette is one of my regular in-game outfit accessories and The Haunted Needle has recreated it perfectly! If you’re handy with a needle, you can get the sewing pattern by joining their Patreon. Or if you’re more into crochet, KittensAndMittensCo has a fish pochette pattern for sale on Etsy.

Animal Crossing shell bag

Not crafty? This holographic shell bag on Ebay is a pretty good match for the game bag and looks to be quite a useful size for everyday.

Animal Crossing Tom Nook aloha shirt

If you’ve been admiring Tom Nook’s laidback style, you can now wear his cute Aloha shirt as Nintendo have made it a reality. It’s a Nintendo Store Japan exclusive but you can use a forwarding service or buy through JapanHaul with international shipping. Can we have Isabelle’s shirt too?

Animal Crossing Able Sisters tags

If you make your own clothes, or buy handmade, Sugarbones (Canada) have these great Able Sisters tags that you can sew inside. Every time you get dressed, you can feel like you really shopped there. They have some excellent Animal Crossing-inspired enamel pins too.

Animal Crossing elephant watering cans

These elephant watering cans aren’t exactly like the game ones but I think they’re almost cuter. They’re really cheap, come in lots of pastel colours and would be perfect for watering all your flowers plants.

If a gamer friend has a birthday coming up, surprise them with a balloon present! There’s a few tutorials on Youtube – this one is by TheLovelyStuff VODs.

There’s lots more Animal Crossing crafts in our archives too. Are you still playing New Horizons? What other items do you wish were real?

    I love these!! Yes, I want to live on my island too! I am definitely still playing. I arrived a little late as I didn’t get my Switch until way after everyone else. My island is still only 3-star, so I am working to get it to 5. Needed to take a little break last month, but will get going again.

    My cousin’s b-day is coming up! And her brother’s too! They’re all obsessed with the game rn. Will have to try out the present one.

    Hello! This is my partners favorite item and has been a piece of every outfit since they got it! Would I be able to purchase the pattern from you directly? It would make for an amazing Christmas present this coming year!
