better photos of my adorable derp, flapjacks! made by the amazing blackash!

Ahhh too cute! I lost it at the rocking horse. The battle of no arms and tiny arms huehuehue.

I love these photo sets, they brighten my day. I want to take them all and put them in a book. Then people will open the book expecting family photos, NOPE it’s all stuffed animals.

How did you get into plush making and do you have any tips or resources to share with folks freshly looking to dive in?
Asked by Anonymous
Answer

I learned to sew when I was younger but didn’t get into plush making until recently. My friend estus was looking for a plush maker to make a baby behemoth for his friend’s new baby. When we couldn’t find any open artists I figured I’d give it a shot. It all worked out and it became a new interest.

As for tips I will have to come up with something more substantial later. For now I can say the thing that has helped me out the most has been to look at other plush and try to figure out how they’re constructed. If you’re unsure on where to start there are some free patterns to try on deviantart to help you learn basic construction and shapes. You’ll never know if you like it if you don’t try! Pick up some scrap bin fabric for cheap and try out something :)

Hi there! I just discovered your site today and I absolutely love a lot of your plushies. I was wondering if I could ask if it would be possible to commission a Scyther plushie and how much would you charge for it?

The baby behemoth that I commissioned blackash to make for my girlfriend’s birthday. It came out incredible, and he’s been on a lot of kooky adventures already!

Hahaha that is so adorable! I love all the pictures, the grilling one is my favorite. 

It is delightful to see something I’ve made enjoy its home. Thanks for sharing
