Star Dragon has been sold thank you ;w;  How To Train Your Dragon pre-orders are still open though!
Selling my Star Dragon to cover a very expensive and unexpected bill *coughthankscracough*. Might add more stuff for sale later since the repair guy may have killed the embroidery unit for my machine and I might have to buy a replacement on top of paying the maintenance for the now-broken one.


Star Dragon (now for sale!) by MagnaStorm
$300USD including worldwide shipping, note me if interested. Would need to be payed upfront, or payed off by Friday at the latest.




My How to Train Your Dragon pre-orders are also still open and would help immensely. Check them out here for more info;
HTTYD Preorders open! ((EDIT)) by MagnaStorm

I really like your plushies :) You are very talented and skilled, and your plushies look like they come from a high end store XD!

I was wondering if it's okay to ask this here :o... but what embroidery machine do you use? (if you don't mind me asking).

Also, on most of your plushies, I see that when the color changes, for example, the leg / feet of the white vulpix, it has an "embroidered" line. ( not sure if that's what you will call it), but I wanted to know if there is a purpose for that or it's just to enhance the look.

Sorry for the questions, hopefully you will have time to answer them for me :)
Keep on plushie making!! XD!!!

I personally use a Baby Lock Ellure plus at the moment, but my recommendation for sewing machines is always to seek out your local dealers! They can answer your questions about machine, evaluate your needs and direct you to a machine that would work for you. Basically a machine that works for me may not be the best choice for everyone else, check with your dealer.

Those lines are called satin stitching, and they're there to seal the raw edge on my applique  angelleadesigns.com/tutorials/…

Thanks for replying to me so quickly :)! So, you're still having to place the fabric into the embroidery hoop. So, do you cut the fabric first them have it embroidered, or embroider a part of the fabric where there is enough space to fully cut out the pattern? I usually cut the pattern out of the fabric first, then try to embroider it, but it's always a challenge that way; that and my fabric shifts / stretches and won't sit still in the hoop XD!

At my parents' home, I used to use my mom's Singer Embroidery machine, but I couldn't get clean and non-stretched out embroidered fabric. But your embroidery machine is beast :D! I may stick with a cheaper alternative hehe, I don't have one right now ever since I moved out of my parents' place.

Ah, so that's what the satin stitching is for on the raw edges. So that they don't fray and shed XD! Gotcha, Thanks !!! :D

I do my embroidery before cutting out my pieces, that way I don't have to worry about lining up everything perfectly in the hoop.
Are you using stabilizer? If you cut out your pieces before embroidering them, are you using a spray adhesive to temporarily stick them to the stabilizer? You should basically have a fabric and stabilizer sandwich; a thick stabilizer like some cut away or tear away for the bottom to provide stability, then your fabric, then a lighter stabilizer like some wash away on top of your fabric to prevent the fabric's pile from showing in between the stitches if you're embroidering on a fabric like minky. Or for the stretching, maybe you're pulling on the fabric too hard when hooping it? Your fabric should be taut when hooped, but not stretched.  That's pretty much all I can think about for stretching and shifting issues!

Hi, I commissioned you on my Sonic plush a long time ago.  I'm wondering, are your dolls machine washable or is it dry clean only?  If it's machine washable, do I need to wash with cold water or warm water?

If you need to clean your plush it's best to do it with a damp cloth and maybe a drop of detergent. Dab, don't rub, the area that needs to be cleaned. If you've used detergent make sure to clean it out completely with a fresh damp cloth

Ah, so I can't wash it through dry cleaning or through machine?
Well, thanks for telling me.

I can't recommend machine washing, since it would be very rough on a handmade plush. I'm very unsure about dry cleaning since it uses a very unique process that can't be replicated at home to test. But generally you don't want to submerge the plush or expose it to high heat. Submerging may clump the stuffing. Minky is a synthetic fabric(polyester to be precise), and exposing it to high heat like very hot water or a drier would melt and damage the fabric. In the end it's up to you if you want to try anything other than spot cleaning, but as the artist I can't encourage it.

hi! i just wanted to let you know, it seems like someone on ebay is selling gomamon plushies using your pattern - www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Portachiave… - but (i believe that?) you don't give patterns out so it might be that they're just using the photo of yours, but either way i thought it would probably be worth bringing to your attention!
