holiday mailing deadlines

Sun Nov 16, 2014, 7:27 AM
  • Mood: Jolly
The deadlines for holiday packages is fast approaching! That means postal services are about to slow down to a crawl. This year the holiday deadlines are as follow:

Within Canada: Dec 11th
to the US: Dec 8th
Worldwide(with some very isolated exceptions): Dec 1st

I was hoping to have a bit more time to restock my shop but I'll work with what I got! I will be restocking a complete set of HTTYD dolls next week and some Feer the next one. If they are purchased before the deadline dates they will make it before Christmas. I may try to squeeze some chibi Wolpertingers and Jackalopes in there too but I need to work on commissions too ahah

For commissioners: I will be finishing all the plushies on the active commission list in December, so if you would like me to hold onto your plush until the holiday rush has passed, send me an email! All plushies that are put on hold will be mailed the first or second week of January.  If you would like to upgrade your shipping method to get your plush faster during the rush, that can also be arranged. Again, just shoot me an email! 

This also means that I'll be getting in touch with the waiting list slots in December. Woo progress! Right now it looks like my commissions will be re-opening in February, unless I clear the waiting list at the speed of light lol

Your work is amazing, I can not stress that enough, but it's so damn expensive! If it wasn't so damn much I would buy so many of your plushies I just don't have that kind of money D:

takes a lot of time, resources and experience to make these. On average it takes a couple days to finish a single plush, if I didn't pay myself a living wage what would be my incentive to keep making more?  =P

Hey there. I really love your wolpertinger and and your other plushies. Actually, I always looked at your store and always find most items sold out, especially the Wolpertinger :(. However, I have come up with a solution of selling your original patterns in a reasonable price about 30 dollars or more since you put lots of work in it. This way you don't have to worry about items sold out and stuff. You may include basic instruction. I hope you would reconsider my idea. Bye for now master plushie maker senpai!

Your doing such a great job with your work. Oh and I know how overweight like it is when the holidays approach from past experience xD no fun is it aye? See I use to be a wood sculpture artist (I still can do stuff like that and such) so people would ask me to make sculptures for Christmas for them. I believe you can do it man! I also figured out I can embroider withought a machine but I'm still going out to by one. So the whole family and I wish you the best of holiday wishes coming towards your way. ~ love: corkycorkscrewyokra, blizzardbeastrabrax,koolexclipse, and many more from others

Hello there. I just recently bought some white minky and I plan on making a Baymax plush. Since this is my first time making a plushie, I was wondering if you could give me any helpful tips, seeing as your very good as sewing.

The best way to start would be by breaking down his design into basic shapes. Sphere head, oval body, etc, to make it more manageable. Once you've decided on the shapes, you can see if any can be combined to simplify the design instead of having a ton of separate pieces. Looking at other Baymax plushies and examining how they're made could help too. I'd also recommend prototyping your pattern before cutting into expensive minky, to be sure everything is the way you want it to be.

It isn't very specific to this, but I also wrote about starting plush making some time back and it's a read that might interest you 
You want to make plushies? Tips and resources listEdit: added a part about fabric selection before 'where do I start'!
Ever since I posted Wolf Link and Midna I've been getting an influx of messages asking me to teach, reveal my secrets, take people under my wing, and so on. The sad thing is I can't spend all that much time one on one with everybody asking me to teach them. So I've decided to put together this massive block of text, relating some of my personal experience in plush making and listing off all my resources at the bottom. This will cover the very basics of plush and pattern making so if you are completely new to plush making this is for you, if you're not and you're just looking for resources skip to the bottom. I hope this will be helpful to someone!
First off, the reality. The big secret. The key to becoming a good plush artist is...
Practice.
I can already feel the glares and exasperation but hear me out first.
One thing I've noticed with a lot of the messages I got were that a lot of people were scared of screwing up.

Ok. Thank you very much for the tips. And I'll be sure to read your journal on tips for making plushies as well.
